Reflecting the theme "our community", this unit consists of Kits 1-4 which are organized in three sections: reading, language analysis, and creative expression. The reading section includes two readers which contain three poems and five stories dealing with a grandmother's efforts to help support the family, a female pilot who successfully lands a damaged plane, a boy who finally overcomes his problem of not being able to make decisions, an ant colony, and a boy with a harmonica. In the language analysis activities, the child works with phrases, sentences, capital letters, punctuation marks, the letter combinations "ce" and "ci", the subject and predicate, direct and indirect object, common and proper nouns, plural forms and gender of nouns, the syllables "ge" and "gi", primitive and derivative nouns, personal pronouns, word syllables, and accent mark in words. Creative expression activities include evaluating paragraphs, writing a paragraph and a story, interpreting non-verbally a story passage, discussing language usage as a publicity technique, writing advertisements, giving a speech to persuade, identifying elements of drama, designing the scenery, making an invitation, and writing a short drama. Teacher instruction for the activities are in Spanish. (NQ)
