From Handprints to Hypotheses: Using the Project Approach with Toddlers and Twos
Wanerman, Todd
Redleaf Press
Toddlers and two-year-olds are in a fluid and dynamic state of development. They have a sense of wonder that is easily activated, and they are always ready to learn. In this book, you will learn how to use hands-on creative projects to engage very young children's interests and nurture their unique ways of exploring and learning. You will be inspired to implement your own project-based curriculum, recognize and respond to children's innate ability to create, and support their curiosity and self-discovery. "From Handprints to Hypotheses": (1) Reviews the major theories of toddler development; (2) Outlines basic goals and guidelines for applying those theories as you set up your space, select materials, develop your curriculum, and incorporate the Project Approach; and (3) Presents twelve art projects--from simple to long-term--with narratives describing the processes in action as children participate in each project.
