Ch'at Ba Olta'i Yik'ehgo Na'nitini (Frog: Teacher's Guide). Book 1.
Rosier, Helen Cody
Designed as a component of the Navajo Bilingual Bicultural Curriculum, "Ch'al" is the first book in a series of three initial readers composed of a teacher's guide and student reader-workbook. Lessons are introduced the second semester of kindergarten or whenever the teacher feels the children are ready to begin reading and should not be longer than 20 minutes with each instructional group consisting of 6 to 10 students. The teacher's guide has two sections: pre-reading lessons and instructions for using the student reader-workbook. The pre-reading lessons are designed to teach children 11 sound/symbol associations in the Navajo language and to give the students experience with blending these sound/symbol associations into syllables. The pre-reading lessons are taught prior to introducing the children to the reader-workbook. The second section of the guide provides step-by-step instructions for using the student's reader-workbook and contains oral activities for introducing the new sound/symbol associations. Suggested lesson plans in English are provided. (ERB)
