This publication is a hands-on activity resource guide for early childhood educators designed to be used in conjunction with "Beginnings: Early Childhood Education in Oklahoma." The purpose of the guide is to present a variety of learning activities on various levels, allowing teachers to choose activities which are appropriate to each child's developmental level. The guide begins with a philosophy and introduction; an overview of expectations for early childhood development, early childhood teachers, and students who are aged three to eight; a description of six commercially-available assessment instruments; ways to involve parents and to organize a volunteer program; methods of facilitating an integrated curriculum; and an explanation of symbols used in the guide. Activities are then offered for the following subjects: (1) art; (2) communication; (3) mathematics; (4) motor development; (5) music and rhythms; (6) social studies; (7) science; (8) health; (9) the child and safety; (10) cooking; (11) sand, water, and woodworking; and (12) transition time. The guide concludes with a directory of sources of free and inexpensive materials and bibliographies of teacher resources, parenting resources, and resources for most of the curriculum subjects covered by the activities.
