At Home with Stickybear: School Version with Lesson Plans (Ages 1-5). [CD-ROM].
Highsmith, Joni Bitman
Aimed at children ages 1 to 5, this software product is designed to give preschoolers an essential skills head start with sight and sounds that will capture their interest. Different navigation methods in the program are designed for ease of use and also to meet the motor skills of very young children. 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) "What Do You Call That?"; (2) "I Can Name That Object"; (3) "How Did You Describe That?"; (4) "Look in the Mirror and What Do You See?"; (5) "What a Pretty Color"; (6) "I Know What Came Next"; (7) "Shape Art"; (8) "Whom Do You Go With?"; (9) "The Number Dance"; (10) "What Time Did You Say It Was?"; (11) "Safety First and Please Use Your Manners"; and (12) "Tell Me about Your Fun House."
