The Kindergarten Guide for Instructional Planning.
Leigh, Cindy; And Others
This color-coded curriculum guide is designed to facilitate instructional planning and help Mississippi's kindergarten teachers develop their schools' instructional management plan. Five broad units of instruction are presented, each of which has been tested, revised, and extended by classroom teachers. The units, which encompass many unit themes teachers include in the kindergarten curriculum, are titled: "Myself, My Home, and My School"; "Harvest Time"; "Making Memories"; "Sky, Land, and Water"; and "Growth and Change". These extended units are designed to involve students for a month or more. Each, however, can be broken down into related mini-units of one or two weeks. Each unit specifies: (1) general goals to guide planning; (2) methods of evaluation; (3) specific unit goals; (4) unit concepts to be developed; and (5) projects and activities. Another major purpose of the guide is to incorporate into unit format ideas provided in "Implementing Kindergarten in Mississippi: Teachers' Resource Book (TRB)", previously published by the State Department of Education. Listed at the end of each of the guide's units are supplementary activities from the "TRB" which can be used in conjunction with the unit. (RH)
