Corporation for National Service.; Department of Education, Washington, DC.
This Ready--Set--Read Kit includes an activity guide for caregivers, a 1997-98 early childhood activity calendar, and an early childhood growth chart. The activity guide part of the kit presents activities and ideas that caregivers (family child care providers and the teachers, staff, and volunteers in child development programs) can use to help young children learn about language. The activity guide part of the kit divides activities into 4 age groups: young babies (birth to 8 months); crawlers and walkers (8 to 18 months); toddlers (18 to 36 months) and preschoolers (3 to 5 years). The activity guide concludes with a list of reading and writing play materials, the 40-item American Library Association's Suggested Book List for Young Readers, and 13 additional resources. The calendar part of the kit is filled with helpful tips and special activities that promote reading and language skills for young children. The growth chart part of the kit measures children's height and language development, and gives age-appropriate activities to promote language development for young children. (RS)
