Growing Up: Getting in Touch with Me. A Value Clarification Resource Manual for Pre-School Teachers.
This resource manual is intended to serve as a guide for preschool teachers in teaching value-related concepts and in providing children with experiences that foster self-understanding, self-acceptance, and strong relationships with others. Instructions for numerous games, fingerplays, and other activities are given as are many references to children's books and films. The materials are organized by the topics of anger, differences, cooperation, death, family (adoption, divorce, fathers, mothers, only children), fear, honesty, individuality, leadership, loneliness, responsibility, self-concept, and sharing. Book references include title, author, and usually a brief annotation. Film references include title, name (but no address) of publisher, length of film, color/sound information, grade level, and usually the date of release and a brief summary of the content. While most of the activities provide directions for use, two pages of activities require the use of the Peabody Early Experience Kit. An index which lists the materials and activities under each topic concludes this manual. (EM)
