Calendar of Reading, Writing, and Mathematics Skills, Grades K-3, 1984-85. A Guide for Parents.
Michigan State Board of Education, Lansing. Michigan Educational Assessment Program.
Following an introductory page providing guidelines for use, this calendar describes a daily learning activity for children and parents to engage in together for about 10 minutes. Parents are urged to follow the daily activities as a means of supporting their children and their children's teachers. It is suggested that a parent's work with his or her child should (1) give additional practice on skills taught at school; (2) show that education is important to the parents; and (3) provide assurance to the parent that the child is performing at least at the minimum expected level for the grade range. While a few of the activities suggested for each month are seasonal, most tasks are not. Activities involve a range of skills: mathematics facts, measuring, reading, writing, listening and following directions, and oral language. The final pages of the calendar give parents additional suggestions about television alternatives, math activities, reading aloud to children, children's books and magazines, making books of children's work, and studying science and social studies textbooks.
