Family Kindergarten = Kinder para familias.
The Family Kindergarten program designed and pilot tested by a bilingual kindergarten teacher at Garretson Elementary School in Corona, California, is described. Based on the premise that parents are the most important and influential educators of children, Family Kindergarten was conceived as an evening class that includes parents and children working together. It is currently offered at five elementary schools in the school district, and positive results include increased volunteerism in the schools and parents who have become advocates for school reform. The program budget is reported, along with information on suppliers, announcements, parent letters, a calendar of events, reminders, and program letterhead. Five sections, which comprise the bulk of this report, are as follows: Session I (Kindergarten Homework); Session II (Reading with Your Child); Session III (Mathematics 1); Session IV (Language Development); and Session V (Mathematics 2 and Evaluation). Each section contains a lesson plan, agenda, and supplemental materials. Materials are in both English and Spanish. (LB)
