Trainer's Guide to Table Toys: A Creative Curriculum for Early Childhood.
Dodge, Diane Trister
This trainer's guide is designed for day care center directors and others responsible for teacher training and parent education who wish to develop and present workshops based on the manual, "Table Toys - A Creative Curriculum for Early Childhood." The guide is divided into six sections, called "sessions," which correspond to the first six chapters in the table toy manual. Each of the six sessions is designed as a complete workshop and includes suggestions on techniques for conveying the information in a workshop setting. Session topics are headed as follows: (1) An Introduction to Table Toys; (2) Arranging Space for Table Toys; (3) Selecting and Displaying Table Toys; (4) Supporting Children Playing with Table Toys; (5) Structuring the Use of Table Toys; and (6) Making Your Own Table Toys. Handouts appended include forms for grouping table toys, for examining homemade and other toys, and a discussion of floor plans. This trainer's guide is not intended to be used alone and is thought to be helpful only when read in conjunction with the Table Toy Manual. (Author/SS)
