Is It Tomorrow Yet? Handbook for Educators of the Very Young.
Kolumbus, Elinor Schulman
Planning learning activities for children is the focus of this kindergarten curriculum guide. Developed from 13 courses for kindergarten teachers and supervisors held at the Mount Carmel International Training Center in Haifa, Israel--attended by approximately 300 participants from 42 countries--the guidebook describes activities and methods for several kindergarten curriculum areas, including arts and crafts, music and movement, language, science, mathematics, and social studies, as well as play and games, and activities involving blocks, sand, water, and mud. In addition, the guide provides discussions of the nature of children, aspects of working with children, and the organization of the kindergarten environment. The planning of instruction, student evaluation, and parent participation are also described. The course prospectus of the Mount Carmel International Training Center, an overview of the development and effectiveness of parent education programs aimed at helping disadvantaged women educate their kindergarten-age children, and a brief report of a study of a parent/school cooperative program are appended.
