Space 2: My Body. Space Orientation Group 1.
van Kuyk, Jef J.
Space orientation is a major area of development for preschool and early primary school children. Knowledge about one's own body and about body movements in space is a necessary condition for space orientation. Starting from their own bodies, children learn to focus on the space in which they move. They then learn to take a non-body perspective and handle relationships between objects. This teaching guide, part of the "Piramide [Pyramid] Project," provides activities for early primary (group 1) students to encourage space orientation. The guide contains two parts, "Group Programme" and "Tutoring Programme." Each part describes concepts to be learned, preparation for activities, and activities related to body and space orientation, demonstration, extension, and adding complexity. Part 1 includes activities related to concept processing, extra attention, review, bilingual children, and hierarchically structured activities such as language and ordering. Part 2 includes remediation-oriented tutoring activities. Appendices contain books, rhymes, songs and games, development materials, and pictures related to the activities. (EV)
