Handbook of Puppetry Concepts and Models for the Bilingual-Bicultural Language Arts Curricula, Grades K-3. The Connecticut Migratory Children's Program.
Peyton, Jeffrey; Koenig, Barbara
This is one of a series of curriculum guides designed to assist bilingual teachers to provide a coordinated program of studies for students in the Connecticut Migratory Children's Program and for any other students whose native language is Spanish. The overall focus of the curriculum guides in the series is on Puerto Rican history and culture. The present guide is a handbook designed to supplement the Language Arts Bilingual-Bicultural Guides for grades K-3. All of the puppet models have been designed to be representative of the Puerto Rican culture and will help to develop positive self-image for Spanish-speaking children. The activities in which these puppets can be used will help in the teaching of speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. Section 1 reviews basic puppet model construction; Section 2 coordinates puppets with specific skills and activities found on specific pages of the Language Arts curricula. This guide is illustrated with black-and-white drawings. (CFM)
