Parent Letters for Early Learning. A Good Year Book.
Fredericks, Anthony D.; Brigham, Mary F.
This book consists of 28 letters that child caregivers who work with children aged 3-6 can send to parents. Letters are organized into eight categories: (1) self-concept; (2) reading and writing readiness; (3) math readiness; (4) imaginative play; (5) motor development; (6) social development; (7) oral language and concept development; and (8) visual and auditory skills. For each of these categories, there are three to six perforated letters which can be removed, duplicated, and sent home to parents during the year. Each letter explains a child development concept and offers 5 to 10 activities for the child and parent to do together. The book provides special project ideas which are extensions of one or more ideas mentioned in the letters of each category. Finally, the book includes a certification of recognition for the child which is to be signed by both teacher and parent. (RJC)
