Designed for high risk children with learning needs in the development of academic, social, physical, or conceptual skills, this manual identifies and presents, in a developmental sequence, a preschool program for disadvantaged and migrant five-year-old children. The program's fundamental goal is to prepare each disadvantaged and/or migrant preschool child for successful entry into first grade through an individualized assessment-prescriptive lesson process that focuses on each child's academic, social, physical, or conceptual needs. The organizational design of the curriculum is modeled after the Santa Clara Inventory of Developmental Tasks, with an increased emphasis in language arts, including the addition of visual and auditory perception and memory. The other strands are reading readiness, gross motor skills, fine motor skills, emotional development, mathematics, social science, art, music, and science. sequence of objectives, with activities described for each. The complete manual represents the major activities for a full year program. The entire manual is written in English, but can be used successfully with Hispanic children as well. The bibliography includes sources for brand name and other special materials/equipment; in many instances all materials may be readily available in the classroom. The pupil program assessment section is designed to be used for pupil selection as well as a measure of pupil progress. (AN)
