POCET Language Example

POCET provides four basic activities for each of the 68 Developmental Guidelines which provide a scope and sequence of skills for Language, Literacy and Mathematics, plus five other domains of learning.

Here is an example for the Language domain:
New Word for the Day
A good teacher is constantly on the lookout for new words to introduce to the group of children. Choose a new word for the day. The word might be a new vocabulary word for children or it could be a word from a book that will be read to the group. Explain the word and what it means. Have the children repeat the word and then use it throughout the day. Example: "Children, today we are going to talk about the word 'pebble'." During the course of the day, read Sylvester and the Magic Pebble by William Steig. Talk about places where pebbes are found.
