The Daily Curriculum Guide, Year II, Weeks 21-34. A Preschool Program for the Spanish-Speaking Child.
Dissemination and Assessment Center for Bilingual Education, Austin, TX.; Spanish Dame Bilingual Bicultural Project, San Jose, CA.
Daily lesson plans for weeks 21 through 34 are provided in this guide, the third and last in the Year II sequence of the Daily Curriculum Guide preschool program for the Spanish-speaking child. The program is based on a language maintenance model in which Spanish is used as a means to develop basic concepts, skills and attitudes. Written in both Spanish and English, the lesson plans give the objectives of each lesson, the materials needed, and detailed instructions for the activities suggested. Objectives of the first twenty weeks are continued, as are many of the activities, such as counting games and songs, work with various paint media, the Feeley Box, flannel boards, and tasting experiences. Mexican cultural awareness is heightened with discussions of Mexican customs and holidays. The children study modes of transportation, health practices, number sets, kinds of vegetables and fruits, and plant growth. Field trips are planned to the airport, park, a farm, train station, fire station, post office, and school. Students learn songs in both Spanish and English, as well as the Spanish and English names for colors, shapes, and numbers. (DS)
