Synopsis

'Emphasizes doing what is best for the child based on sound principles of how young children learn. It is not a 'recipe' book as many others are' - Joan Moyer, Professor Emeritus, Arizona State University



'The book gives a variety of good examples of real life situations teachers encounter daily in their classrooms. . . There are many books with early childhood education curriculum activities but not many with specific strategies for everyday needs. . . The examples and stories show humor and a good knowledge of what are appropriate child development practices' - Kathleen McGinn, Director, Child Development Programs, Colton Joint Unified School District, California



Engage and grow young minds with strategies for play-based curriculum!



Early childhood educators face a perpetual challenge: How do you develop children's early academic skills in stimulating, developmentally appropriate, and culturally responsive ways? Recognizing that play is children's work, this friendly resource offers 99 hands-on and often humorous tips to prepare diverse children for school.



More Help! For Teachers of Young Children provides readers with entertaining stories and practical strategies to create learning opportunities for early literacy, math, science, art, social studies, music, and movement.



Each tip offers:



- A short and engaging real-life story

Suggestions which teachers can try out in their classrooms right away

- "Ask Yourself" questions for teachers to think about their classroom practice

- A "Try This" section at the end of each chapter gives readers even more activity ideas for working with children ages 2-5.



Both new and experienced early years teachers will learn and laugh each time they open this inviting resource and its companion volume, Help! For Teachers of Young Children: 88 Tips to Develop Children's Social Skills and Create Positive Teacher-Family Relationships.
