Activities and Resources for Guiding Young Children's Learning.
Tarrow, Norma Bernstein; Lundsteen, Sara Wynn
Written from a developmental interactionist viewpoint, this guide for teachers provides practical and useful ideas for working with infants through 9-year-olds. (Developmental interactionists contend that activities designed to foster one area of a child's development will tend to foster development in other areas as well.) Section I of the guide provides general resources relevant to the field of early childhood education. These resources are divided into three categories: a partially annotated bibliography of books and periodicals for teachers; a non-annotated bibliography of books and periodicals for children; and names and addresses of suppliers and sources of commercial, free or inexpensive, audiovisual, and community learning meterials. Sections II, III, IV, and V contain objectives, activities, and specific resources for four developmental areas: psycho-physical motor, cognitive, linguistic, and affective. Concepts, activities, and resources designed for use in a multicultural approach to teaching and learning are provided in Section VI. Finally, some ideas and guidelines for the education of children with special needs are presented in Section VII. Sample activity forms which teachers can duplicate in order to create additional activities for each developmental level are provided in the appendix. (Author/MP)
