[Bilingual-Bicultural Curriculum for Mathematics: Grade 2.]
Marrero-Ribot, Maria; And Others
Designed to assist bilingual teachers in providing a coordinated program of studies for students in the Connecticut Migratory Children's Program and others whose native language is Spanish, this bilingual-bicultural mathematics curriculum guide for second grade is one of a series for pre-school through fifth grade. The overall focus is on Puerto Rican history and culture, placing development of skills within the context of the experience and social identity of the child. A sequential approach is utilized. The guide contains eight units, related to those in the other second grade guides: myself (numeration), my school (addition), my family (subtraction), my home (multiplication/division), my community (fractions), transportation (time and money), communication (measurement), animals (geometry). Appropriate skills are presented in each unit; those in the geometry unit are: recognizing that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line; identifying a line segment and drawing line segments between named points; identifying a triangle, rectangle and circle; identifying a square and distinguishing it from a rectangle. Key vocabulary words are listed with each skill, as are activities to motivate students to learn the skills. The illustrations provided can be copied for instructional use. Much of the material is given in Spanish and English. (MH)
