The Complete Preschool Program.
Martin, Arlene L.
This book provides beginning preschool teachers with an easy-to-follow program for immediate use, and experienced teachers with ideas and activities suitable for integration into existing programs. Chapter 1 presents a recommended model for a daily preschool schedule, along with a task-by-task description of a typical day's responsibilities for the teacher, the teacher's assistant, and the children. Chapter 2 consists of 67 theme-related lesson plans which are meant to serve as models for teachers to use in creating more personalized plan variations. Chapter 3 contains a variety of classroom charts and lesson cards which are frequently referred to for use in many of the daily lesson plans. Chapter 4 provides an informed sampling of ready-to-use ideas for teachers to customize and incorporate into the daily lesson plans. Chapter 5 treats a variety of typical school management considerations and offers models for dealing with critical organizational needs. The chapter's checklists, forms and guidelines are designed to provide criteria and documents to use in recording assessments of children's skills and progress. The section on interaction between the home and school contains specific recommendations for facilitating harmonious and productive relations among the school staff, children, and parents. (RH)
