The All-Day Kindergarten and Pre-K Curriculum: A Dynamic-Themes Approach
Fromberg, Doris Pronin
Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group
Grounded in theory and research, "The All-Day Kindergarten and Pre-K Curriculum" provides an activity-based and classroom-proven curriculum for educators to consider as they plan and interact with pre-k and kindergarten children. Allowing young children the opportunities to become independent, caring, critical thinkers who feel comfortable asking questions and exploring possible solutions, the Dynamic Themes Curriculum offers children the skills they need for responsible citizenship and academic progress. This book describes a culturally-sensitive pre-k and kindergarten curriculum in the context of literacy, technology, mathematics, social studies, science, the arts, and play, and also discusses: (1) How to use the seven integrated conditions for learning to meet and exceed content learning standards; (2) How to organize for differentiated instruction and to integrate multiple forms of assessment; (3) How to teach literacy tools and skills in fresh ways; and (4) How to work with families, colleagues, and community. Building off of author Doris Fromberg's groundbreaking earlier work, "The All-Day Kindergarten and Pre-K Curriculum" presents a practical curriculum centering on how young children develop meanings. The book is divided into four sections: Section I: The Setting; Section II: Content: Connecting Experiences with Dynamic-Themes; Section III: Learning Tools, Skills, and Ways to Represent Experiences; and Section IV: Planning, Assessment, and Community Connections.
