Spanish Curricula Development Center, Miami Beach, FL.; Dissemination and Assessment Center for Bilingual Education, Austin, TX.
Spanish for second graders is explored in the instructional and assessment activities of the unit six Spanish as a Second Language strand. The function of the strand is to help provide the English-dominant child with the structures and vocabulary needed for effective communication in a bilingual environment. Focus, objective, and materials for each activity are in Spanish and English, with teacher instructions only in Spanish. Comprehension and interpretation skills are developed with the two small readers, "Llegan del Campo" and "En El Camino." Spanish words and concepts explored in the four kits of this unit include possessive expressions, the negative imperative, the use of the pronoun as a direct object, the expressions "es menor que" and "es mejor que" and such words as"tambien", "tampoco", "alguien", "nadie", "algo", and "nada". Oral stories, poems, songs, role playing situations, riddles, the game of "Simon Says" and class discussions are some of the instructional activities described. This unit is oriented toward the basic theme of the neighborhood as a community. Assessment activities for each kit measure knowledge or skills acquired in the instructional activities and indicate areas in need of reinforcement. (DS)
