This guide for the Integrated Kindergarten Program in the Fairfax County (Virginia) Public Schools presents the instructional kindergarten program in three strands. The first strand, integrated language arts, contains ten units that encompass social studies, environmental science, art, language arts, and health. This strand also contains computer literacy objectives, lessons to serve potentially gifted children, and optional home projects to involve parents and caretakers. The second strand, mathematics/science, incorporates a manipulative approach and includes activities in six instructional units: (1) free exploration, (2) sorting and classifying, (3) number concepts, (4) patterns, (5) comparing, and (6) number experiments. The third strand, music/movement, provides active learning experiences in music and physical education. All three instructional strands focus on the child's development. The curriculum also provides for a variety of learning centers to extend basic activities and to provide for small group and individual learning. (PCB)
