As part of the Asian American Bilingual Center (AABC) Pilipino Language Arts Program, a curriculum suitable for students in kindergarten is presented. The program is geared both to the immigrant Filipino child and to the American-born Filipino child who learned to speak Pilipino at home, and includes kits that emphasize the AABC's major concepts: identity, needs, and interaction. The "Interaction Kit" includes: (1) a teacher's handbook that includes a math handbook, reading/language arts handbook, lessons, games, worksheets, and resource materials; (2) a student workbook; and (3) a teacher's answer key. Four themes are stressed in this bilingual program: child, family, community, and natural environment. The emphasis in kindergarten is on self-discovery. Each theme reappears and expands through the curriculum from one level to the next in increasing complexity. (LB)
