Read, Play, and Learn! Storybook Activities for Young Children. The Transdisciplinary Play-Based Curriculum. Teacher's Guide.
Linder, Toni W.
Read, Play, and Learn is a play-based curriculum designed to promote growth across all of the areas of development important to a young child. With a school-year's worth of ready-to-use lessons or modules, the curriculum provides story-related activities centered around themes such as enjoying seasonal festivities, sharing emotions, making friends, understanding other cultures, and just having fun. This teacher's guide provides guidance in encouraging early learning and development by creating a literacy-rich environment for preschool and kindergarten children of all ability levels. The guide explains: how to arrange the classroom; organize the day; introduce modifications for children of varying ability levels; and involve family members in their child's education. The guide also offers background information on the importance of play and literature in early learning, provides an overview of developmental domains, and discusses what to expect at various levels of children's development. The guide's appendix provides reproducible master planning sheets and illustrations to use with module activities. (HTH)
