Get a First Start with the Arts. Ideas To Use with Your Little One.
Palmer, Mary, Comp.; Crook, Beth, Comp.
Babies respond to bright colors and shapes, rhythms and sounds of music, and actions and words of others. These first learning experiences are strengthened when parents and other adults interact with babies. This booklet offers ideas for giving infants and toddlers a start in learning through the arts. To facilitate age-appropriate learning, the descriptions of arts activities are arranged in four stages corresponding to the ages of 0-6, 6-12, 12-24, and 24-36 months. However, because babies develop in unique ways, the materials may be used page by page, repeated from stage to stage, or interchanged. The activities involve games; songs, rhymes, and poems; cut-outs; picture books; projects; and dramatizations. (BC)
