Spanish Curricula Development Center, Miami Beach, FL.; Dissemination and Assessment Center for Bilingual Education, Austin, TX.
Unit four of the Spanish as a Second Language Strand for grade two offers learning and assessment activities designed to provide the English-dominant child with structures and vocabulary for effective communication in a bilingual environment. The neighborhood is the basic theme for activities in kits 13-16 to help build concepts in a new language through active participation in formal and informal language experiences. All kits provide for oral language development, structured reading, comprehension, and interpretation. Each has assessment activities and lists of vocabulary and skills of decoding, comprehension, and interpretation, including pages where they appear in the text. Kit content is as follows: neighborhood places and tasks; comparison of country and city neighborhoods (plus animals found in each); number lines; order of events, main ideas, feelings of characters; community human/material resources; weather; numerals 21-30; enumerating, subsuming; community human, communication, emergency, and entertainment resources; rooms and furniture in a house; family members; school rooms/personnel; time; geometric figures; addition and subtraction equations. Three small student books in Spanish accompany the guide. (RS)
