Resources for Creative Teaching in Early Childhood Education.
Flemming, Bonnie Mack; And Others
This resource handbook (a continuation and expansion of an original work published in 1969 by the Curriculum Committee of the Kansas Association for the Education of Young Children) integrates curriculum ideas and learning opportunities into every part of a school day's program. The book deals with a variety of subjects grouped under the general headings Self-Concept, Families, Family Celebrations, Seasons, Animals, Transportation, and The World I Live In. Each topic area is divided into sections on basic understandings; additional facts the teacher should know; methods most adaptable for introducing the subject to children; vocabulary; learning centers, including discovery center, dramatic play centers, learning, language, and readiness materials center, art center, and book center; planning for grouptime, including music, fingerplay and poems, stories, games, routine times, large muscle activities and extended experiences; and teacher resources, including books and periodicals, pictures and displays, and community resources. Included are descriptions of games, music, art, and dramatics, accessories, and playgound equipment that can be made by the teacher; listings of commercial games, records and their manufacturers; and concise bibliographies. The book combines a quick reference for basic information about curriculum ideas and a practical, scannable format. It is perforated and three-hole punched so that it can be used in a loose-leaf binder. (MS)
