The Littlest Learners: Providing Appropriate Education for Our Youngest Students.
Oekerman, Rebecca B.
American School Board Journal, v187 n11 p54-55,58 Nov 2000

This means teachers should be encouraged to interact differently with younger kids. The importance of creating developmentally appropriate programs stressing playing and talking is discussed. (MLH)
