Dombrower, Jule; And Others
Part of a program to increase the academic growth of preschool and primary grade students through the utilization of brain hemisphere research, this volume contains lessons designed to improve basic reading skills. Material is divided into two sections. Section 1 contains 17 activities to develop letter and word recognition. In activities 1-12, students associate the general size and position of letters with the letters themselves. The remaining activities treat rebus posters, complex words, word discovery, and finger reading. Section 2 contains 32 lessons which incorporate music and art into activities for developing vocabulary and comprehension. Activities include songs, jingles, coloring, poetry, fables, proverbs, shaping, sequencing, and acting. All activities are designed to develop both right and left brain processes as well as hemisphere integration. (LP)
