Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore. Office of Project Basic.
Described in this collection are activities designed to help parents provide informal home learning experiences for children in kindergarten through third grade. Each activity sheet provided is based on an objective or unit included in one of two programs implemented in the Montgomery County, Maryland, public schools: the Instructional Program in Mathematics and the Reading/Language Arts Program. In the primary grades reading/language arts program, children read short stories, folktales, fables, and poetry. The goal of these activities is to increase each child's comprehension through emphasis on listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Home activities supplementing the reading/language arts curriculum give children additional opportunities to use these skills at home. The program in mathematics is an organized sequence of math skills and concepts organized by categories of skills associated with addition, subtraction, time and temperature, geometric figures, and fractions. Instruction is geared to meet grade-level objectives; the content of home math activity sheets is based on these objectives. A parent handbook is included with the booklet, describing the parent involvement program and providing resources such as "recipes for fun activities" and a museum reference list. (RH)
