SCDC Spanish Curricula Units. Social Science Strand, Unit 6, Grade 2, Supplement & Ditto Packet.
Spanish Curricula Development Center, Miami Beach, FL.; Dissemination and Assessment Center for Bilingual Education, Austin, TX.
The supplement and ditto packet to the social science strand of unit six for second graders contains materials for both group activities and seatwork for individual students. Based on the theme of the neighborhood as a community, the visual materials can be used to help stimulate oral language and conceptual development. Pictures of businesses, occupations, and types of neighborhoods are used to help students identify the elements of various neighborhoods. Other visuals aid in class discussions on changes, ethnic differences, group formation, and conflict resolution. The ditto packet contains ditto masters for making multiple copies of visuals and individual seatwork sheets. Written activities include matching occupation with job descriptions, multiple choice, fill in the blanks, and yes-no type questions. The written work is intended to be presented under supervision rather than as independent tasks. Language on materials for classroom use is in Spanish and the brief introductions to the supplement and ditto packet are in Spanish and English. Each kit within the unit is designed for a period of instruction of two to three weeks. (DS)
