This time-saving program planner for librarians and classroom teachers alike includes everything you need to get started--reading lists, flannelboard patterns, poems, songs, easy crafts, even take-home activities to extend the learning process. The many creative ideas packed inside include: (1) Activities keyed to popular classroom themes, with one chapter for each week of the school year; (2) Lessons that reinforce skills in key learning areas such as reading, writing, and math; (3) American Sign Language and Spanish language activities that make diversity awareness a part of children's learning; and (4) Teachable concepts that can be mixed and rearranged for maximum flexibility, complementing classroom schedules . Both veterans and novices will find plenty to help make kindergarten days richer, more rewarding, and more fun.
