SCDC Spanish Curricula Units. Language Arts Strand, Unit 9, Grade 3, Supplement & Ditto Packet.
Spanish Curricula Development Center, Miami Beach, FL.; Dissemination and Assessment Center for Bilingual Education, Austin, TX.
Two readers, supplementary illustrations, and a ditto pack constitute this supplement to unit nine's language arts for third graders. Visual aids and materials for both seatwork for students and for class activities are presented; the teacher's guide to the unit provides the timetable for presentation. Kits 33 and 34 are based on the reader "Relatos de Nuestra Tierra," and kits 35 and 36 use the reader "Cuentos y Leyendas." Supplement illustrations relate to the stories and are used to help stimulate oral language and conceptual development. The concept of communications appears repeatedly in the unit activities with depictions of such communication forms as sign language, smoke signals, drums, whistles, and alarms. Pictures of sailboats, christmas trees, etc., show how pictures themselves can send messages. Other activities are based on the different forms of written communication. Written exercises in the ditto packet are used for such activities as ordering story events, completing stories, and answering questions related to readings; these are intended for presentation under supervision rather than as independent tasks. Language on all materials for classroom use is in Spanish while brief introductions to the supplement and ditto packet are in Spanish and English. (DS)
