Home Task Book for Parents and Kids.
Devine, Jan
The bilingual Spanish-English book contains 61 learning activities and educational games that parents can use to help their preschool children develop readiness skills. The activities are generally intended to develop gross and small motor skills, an awareness of the world around, independence, social awareness, and curiosity, although some are specifically designed to acquaint preschoolers with basic concepts, colors, numbers, and letters. Activities such as sorting clothes; making puzzles, instruments, and books; conducting simple experiments; pasting; and lacing are organized according to 13 major skill areas: categorizing; listening; touching; matching; sequencing; speaking; shapes; colors; music; numbers; letters; art; and science. Each activity or game is presented in large print on a separate page and is illustrated with-cartoons and drawings. The Spanish translation of the activity appears on the facing page. A list of interrelated skills is included for each activity in both Spanish and English. (SB)
