Follow Me Too: A Handbook of Movement Activities for Three- to Five-Year-Olds.
Torbert, Marianne; Schneider, Lynne B.
This teacher resource book features 49 organized games that involve active movement and that provide positive play experiences for 3- to 5-year-old children. The games in the book encourage cooperative learning and teamwork, and help children develop important social, emotional, physical, and cognitive skills. In addition to detailed descriptions of 49 field-tested games, the book provides general information on using movement games in early childhood. Suggestions for simplifying or complicating the games allow teachers to provide for students' individual abilities and needs. Suggestions for parent involvement, a perceptual motor chart indicating the skills involved in each game, and directions for making inexpensive equipment are also provided. (MM)
