Designed to focus on language, mathematics, science, and social studies, the activities described are divided into two major subject areas: language and mathematics. The activities are arranged in a hierarchical sequence from simple to complex, with general objectives of the comprehensive readiness program listed. Specifically, the language category is subdivided into verbal language, reading readiness, and writing readiness. Mathematics is subdivided into concepts of size, shape, and quantity. Objectives are given for each major subject area, and all activities in each subcategory are organized according to objectives, materials needed, and procedures. Some activities are detailed, along with variations, worksheet information, alternatives, and cross references. (BJD)
