Supplement to a Teacher's Notebook: Alternatives for Children with Learning Problems. Learning Alternatives in the Summer: One Program. Reading Games and Activities.
Migdail, Sherry R.; Vail, Priscilla L.
The first section of this booklet describes a six-week summer workshop designed for children, ages five to thirteen, who have moderate to serious learning problems. In the morning session, teachers worked with the children individually or in small groups. In the afternoon, teachers assessed student abilities and devised individualized instruction that matched the special interests of the teachers with the needs of the students. The booklet lists behaviors and problems that inhibit successful classroom behavior and describes four tests (auditory skills, diagnostic arithmetic, diagnostic reading, and individual achievement) used in the program. The second half of the booklet outlines reading games and activities for children with learning problems. These games have been devised to sharpen student awareness in areas of sense discrimination, language development, and perception of time and space. (MAI)
