Winning Ways To Learn, Ages 3, 4 & 5: 600 Great Ideas for Children. Goddard Parenting Guides.
Meisels, Samuel J.; Marsden, Dorothea B.; Stetson, Charlotte
Noting that parents have the opportunity to help their young children build a strong foundation for learning, this book shows parents of 3- to 5-year-olds how to make learning and discovery fun while developing attributes such as competence and curiosity. The book contains 600 creative and low-cost activities, based on the work sampling system, that build learning easily into everyday life. The book is divided into three major sections, one for each year. Each section covers the full range of knowledge and skills children need to succeed in school: mathematics, science, social studies, language and literacy, the arts, social skills, and physical development. Following a discussion of what a child at each age should be learning, the "It's Your Turn" section details dozens of age-specific activities and ideas for parents to use. All the activities involve simple materials or experiences that come directly from home, family, or neighborhood. (KB)
