Young Children and the Arts Book Excerpt:

Young Children and the Arts: Nurturing Imagination and Creativity examines the place of the arts in the experiences of young and very young children at home and in out-of-home settings at school and in the community. There is great need for development of resources in the arts specifically designed to introduce babies and toddlers to participatory experiences in the visual arts, dance, music, and storytelling/theater. This book presents valuable guidelines for early childhood teachers, families, caregivers and community organizations. Young Children and the Arts presents a comprehensive approach to the arts that is aligned with early childhood developmentally appropriate practice and that combines an exploratory, materials-based approach with an aesthetic-education approach for children from birth to eight years of age. It addresses both how the arts are foundational to learning, and how teachers and parents can nurture young children’s developing imagination and creativity. The models presented emphasize a participatory approach, introducing young children to the arts through activities that call for engagement, initiative and creative activity. Additionally, Young Children and the Arts addresses the intersection of early childhood education and the arts—at points of convergence, and at moments of tension. The role of families and communities in developing and promoting arts suffused experiences for and with young children are addressed. Young Children and the Arts examines the role of innovative arts policy in supporting a broad-based early arts program across the diverse settings in which young children and their families live, work, and learn.

Strategies for Including Children with Special Needs in Early Childhood Settings Book Excerpt:

This practical, hands-on guide provides strategies and adaptations to accommodate young children with disabilities or special needs. It puts theory into practice with clear examples and directions to ensure all children can participate equally in the inclusive classroom. Adaptations are offered by activity rather than by disability, and the focus is on embedding instruction within daily routines. Short chapters, clear discussion of rationale, and the plentiful examples prepare readers to effectively support children with a variety of common disabilities such as cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, autism, visual impairment, hearing loss, and behavioral challenges. Readers have commented on the usefulness of the strategies, details, and scenarios for working in general and special early childhood education. The text is especially appropriate for seminars accompanying student teaching and internships in general education, special education, and inclusive early childhood classrooms.

101 Activities for Kids in Tight Spaces Book Excerpt:

You can never have enough space. And if you can't, just think of your kids--all the time they have to spend in tight spaces--like cars, planes, trains, the doctor's office, the grocery store, being sick or housebound, waiting in line. Kids need room to move around, but there are many times when they just plain can't have it. While raising two exuberant boys, teaching preschool, leading Cub Scouts, and running a birthday party business, Carol Stock Kranowitz came up with savvy, creative ways to keep kids content in tight spaces. In 101 Activities for Kids in Tight Spaces, her activity ideas combine old standbys with new ones born of desperation and cramped quarters. They follow a philosophy that helps kids develop their different skills and abilities while entertaining themselves and interacting. You'll find great projects for every imaginable small space parents and children encounter: Fun Food for Tiny Kitchens: Ants on a Log, Footprints in the Snow, and Aiken Drum Faces In the Urban Community: Windowsill Garden, Bug Jar, and Corn-on-the-Sponge When the Walls Seem to Be Closing In: Pillow Crashing, People Sandwich, and Teeter-Totter When what you've got is a small space and a restless child, what you need are 101 ingenious solutions--right away. Here they are--easy to implement, creative fun for the three to seven-year-old--activities that can turn tough moments into teachable, terrific ones.
