Spanning two years, the program set forth in the Daily Curriculum Guide for preschool Spanish-speaking children is essentially a language maintenance model in which Spanish is used as a means to develop basic concepts, skills and attitudes. This guide gives daily lesson plans for the first ten weeks of the second year. Each lesson, written in Spanish and English, gives complete details on lesson objectives, materials, and instructions for activities. Lessons are aimed at teaching colors, shapes, sizes, and the number concepts from one to seven, and developing the child's self awareness, auditory and visual memory, oral language, large and small muscle coordination, and sound discrimination. Many songs and games are suggested. Children also make crayon drawings, work with the flannel board, create shape collages, sponge and finger paint, and use various building toys. Stories, rhymes, field trips, and tasting experiences are also among the activities. A Host Mother is present each day to provide assistance to the teacher. Halloween and Thanksgiving themes are utilized during the appropriate time periods. (DS)
