The curriculum and resource guide is designed to help elementary school teachers organize their classroom and instructional activities to increase achievement of pupils whose first language is Spanish. The guide offers a curriculum plan, instructional strategies and activities, suggested teacher and student materials, and assessment procedures focusing on acquisition of higher-order thinking skills, integration of science and mathematics concepts, acquisition of content knowledge, and language skill development. Motivational strategies compatible with the pupils' own social and cultural environment are incorporated into the materials. This, the first of two volumes, contains six instructional units, three for kindergarten and three for grade 1. Each unit contains 7-10 lessons. The 3 kindergarten unit topics are: the 5 senses; spiders; and dinosaurs. The first-grade unit topics are: plants and seeds; the human body; and good health. An introductory section gives an overview of the materials and some suggestions for using them. An additional section provides a Spanish translation of the basic unit and lesson summaries. The detailed units and lessons follow. (Contains 26 references.) (MSE)
