Daybreak Star Preschool Activities Book: A Teacher's "How-to" Book.
Patacsil, Sharon; And Others
The culturally-based educational materials contained in the Daybreak Star Preschool Activities Book are used with the Native American children in the United Indians of All Tribes Foundation's Daybreak Star Preschool. These educational materials reflect the cultures of the children in the Preschool. The Preschool's primary focus is to create a child-centered, culturally relevant atmosphere for young Native children as they prepare for a public school education. Each child is provided the opportunity to develop a positive self-image by learning academic skills from educational materials reflecting his/her own culture. This book includes instructions on how to make the following: lotto games, lacing boards, cardboard puzzles, wooden puzzles, sequence puzzles, number cards and puzzles, and wooden dominoes. Most of the supplies for making these learning materials are easily found. The pictures for most of the heavy paper puzzles can be used by cutting the pages out of this book and mounting them on tagboard, bristol board or illustration board. "Color Me" pages, which can be duplicated and distributed to preschoolers to color, have been included throughout the book. (Author)
