SCDC Spanish Curricula Units. Spanish SL, Unit 5, Grade 2, Teacher's Guide.
Spanish Curricula Development Center, Miami Beach, FL.; Dissemination and Assessment Center for Bilingual Education, Austin, TX.
The Spanish SL strand of unit five for second graders provides the English-dominant child with the structures and vocabulary he will need for effective communication in a bilingual environment. This teacher's guide contains assessment activities, activities for oral language development, and activities for listening and related skills of comprehension and interpretation. These activities help the child build concepts in his new language through formal and informal language experiences. Focus, materials and objective for the activities are given in Spanish and English, with teacher instructions in Spanish only. Two illustrated readers are used to help the child read by structures, recall details, identify feelings, and discuss cause-effect relationships. Activities provide opportunities for class participation through discussions, question-response exercises, musical games, songs, and written work. Pupils identify actions in pictures, tell time, work with rhymes, learn the days of the week, label and group objects, describe sensory perceptions, name parts of the body, and work with command and possessive words. Specific Spanish concepts include the contrast between the verbs "ser" and "estar", the introduction of the present progressive, noun and modifier agreement, past tense of verbs, and pronouns used as direct objects.
