Stickybear's Early Learning Activities: School Version with Lesson Plans (Ages 2-6). [CD-ROM].
Highsmith, Joni Bitman
Aimed at children ages 2 to 6, this software product is designed to give preschoolers an essential skills head start with sight and sounds that will capture their interest. The courseware provides two modes of play, allowing children to learn through prompted direction or through discovery. The program is bilingual, offering skill development in both English and Spanish. The accompanying printed teaching guide includes 12 lesson plans, most of which may be completed in a single day or over a longer period of time. Some lessons can be expanded to cover several weeks as students become more skilled. Lessons are written on the assumption that the teacher may have access to only a single computer, but availability of additional computers is beneficial. Each of the lesson plans includes activities, an area of focus, a description of the method used, the goals and objectives, the materials required, the area of emphasis, and several variations. The 12 lesson plans are: (1) "Look at How Many Words I Know"; (2) "You Say High, I Say Low"; (3) "What Is Your Favorite Color?"; (4) "1, 2, 3, 4, 5"; (5) "How High Can You Count?"; (6) "I Know My Numbers"; (7) "I Like the Shape You're In"; (8) "You Look Like the Letter..."; (9) [same]; (10) "You Sound Just Like..."; (11) "I Can Read!"; and (12) "I Can Speak Another Language."
