Learn Together: Activities for Parents and Children [and] Leader's Guide.
New Educational Projects, Inc., Lancaster, PA.
This set of instructional materials consists of a 12-page leader's guide and 75 activity sheets to be used in adult literacy programs by parents who want to help their children learn. The leader's guide explains the purpose of the materials and offers suggestions for use of the materials one on one, in a class group, and outside the class or program. There is also subscription information for 10 children's magazines and a list of recommended children's books for levels K-3. The activities are for preschool through grade three and are presented in approximately the same order they are introduced in school. There are four groups of activities: (1) prereading activities, to acquaint children with concepts such as sizes, shapes, colors, pencil, and paper; (2) reading activities, following traditional school curricula, alphabet through phonics; (3) simple creative writing activities to reinforce reading; and (4) math activities, to develop comprehensive basic math skills. The activity sheets are easily reproducible. Each begins with a statement of purpose and tells how to proceed. Items that may be needed in performing certain activities are listed as are suggestions for further activities. Each activity is designed to be used as an individual unit, independent of the others.
