More I Can Learn! Strategies and Activities for Gray-Area Children.
Children today are very different from children of even five years ago. More and more children are recognized as having learning difficulties, and their self-esteem is more fragile than ever. Children used to TVs, VCRs, cellular phones, computers, and Gameboys demand high-interest activities rather than the "skill and drill" methods of a decade ago. Somehow, among all the pressures and demands, children still need to develop basic skills, and children who are struggling need extra help. This book is a response to the request for more activities to help struggling learners in the classroom. It provides the primary teacher with easy-to-use, fun, creative activities that address the difficulties children have in learning. While these activities are specifically designed to help struggling learners, they are also suitable for all children. This book is organized by specific curriculum areas and can be used by classroom teachers, parents, teaching assistants, peer tutors, and specialists. Activities are particularly well suited for students who learn through auditory, kinesthetic, tactile, or visual modalities. (Contains 12 references.) (ASK)
