A CREATIVE GUIDE FOR PRESCHOOL TEACHERS. GOALS, ACTIVITIES, AND SUGGESTED MATERIALS FOR AN ORGANIZED PROGRAM.
WYLIE, JOANNE, ED.
THIS DOCUMENT IS A COMPREHENSIVE MANUAL FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF A NURSERY OR PRESCHOOL PROGRAM. EMPHASIZING THE PHYSICAL, INTELLECTUAL, AND EMOTIONAL NEEDS OF THE 4-YEAR-OLD, THIS MANUAL DELINEATES THE GOALS OF A PRESCHOOL PROGRAM AND SUGGESTS THE MEANS OF ACHIEVING THEM. IT CONSIDERS IN SOME DEPTH SPECIFIC AREAS OF THE PRESCHOOL CURRICULUM, NAMELY, (1) PLAY IN THE CLASSROOM AND ON THE PLAYGROUND, (2) LANGUAGE ARTS, (3) ARTS AND CRAFTS, (4) MUSIC, (5) MATHEMATICS, (6) SCIENCE, AND (7) HEALTH. BESIDES A WELL-DEVELOPED, MEANINGFUL CURRICULUM, THE TEACHER IS A MOST IMPORTANT ELEMENT OF THE PRESCHOOL PROGRAM. SHE IS EXPECTED TO DEMONSTRATE A GREAT INSIGHT AND UNDERSTANDING IN DEALING WITH HER 4-YEAR-OLDS AND THEIR WIDE RANGE OF PERSONALITIES AND FEELINGS. MUCH OF THE SUCCESS OF IMPLEMENTING THE CURRICULUM WILL DEPEND ON HER FEELING FOR WHEN AND HOW THE VARIOUS ACTIVITIES ARE TO BE PRESENTED. THE PRESCHOOL PROGRAM IS ESSENTIALLY A SOCIAL STUDIES PROGRAM, NOT AN INTENSE ACADEMIC EXPERIENCE. IT MUST BE DESIGNED AND ADMINISTERED TO DEVELOP EFFICIENTLY AND POSITIVELY THE PUPIL'S INDIVIDUAL AND SOCIAL PERSONALITY. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM WESTERN PUBLISHING EDUCATION, RACINE, WISCONSIN. (WD)
