The Home Stretch.
Originally conceived as an adjunct to the publication "A Planning Guide to the Preschool Curriculum," this home activities guide can be used by any parent of a young child. The guide consists of 44 units (each centered on a specific concept) designed to provide a variety of cognitive, sensory, and motor experiences. Most of the home activities require parent participation and have been chosen to enhance parent/child interaction as well as the child's skills. Typical of the activities included are "Body Parts,""Buildings,""Autumn,""Pets,""Winter Holidays,""Kitchen," and "Things We Do." A short list of related children's books has been appended to each of the units. In loose-leaf format, most units are compact enough to permit duplication for distribution to parents. Activities require items commonly found in most homes. (RH)
