This oral language program, designed for children ages 3 to 5, is divided into 11 sections covering the themes of self and senses; family, home, and friends; teddy bears; school and community; colors; food; animals; clothes; summer fun; holidays; and vehicles. Numerous cutouts are provided to prepare for the activities in this book, and each section's activities aim at developing such skills as auditory memory, question-asking ability, and improved attention span through use with whole classroom groups. Three activities per week in class are provided with an average completion time of 20 minutes each. There are also weekly activities for parents to complete with children, again based on the 11 themes. Activities frequently include stories and illustrations designed to improve speaking/listening skills and vocabulary through role-playing, games, discussions, and other interactive methods. A pre-test/post-test, tips on implementation, and scheduling guidelines are included as well. (PB)
