En el seno del hogar. Experiencias familiares para desarrollar el alfabetismo (Right at Home. Family Experiences for Building Literacy).
Hansen, Merrily P.; Armstrong, Gloria
This publication, a Spanish translation of "Right at Home," is a family involvement program in the form of easy-to-read cartoon-style letters to be used at home by parents or other family members with their preschool or kindergarten-age children. The book is designed to be used independently by parents, or to be reproduced and distributed to families by teachers as part of the school program. The letters present specific ideas for developing literacy skills during day-to-day activities. The publication provides enjoyable practice in the following important skills: (1) life skills; (2) concept development; (3) thinking skills; (4) speaking and listening skills; and (5) reading and writing skills. There are 33 pages containing 3 or more ideas for activities and conversations that strengthen skills or concepts. The pages present a variety of homes and neighborhoods to communicate the idea that learning depends neither on time nor place. The book also contains five pages of instructions for simple arts and crafts projects. There is also one page of traditional songs, poems, and rhymes. (KM)
