Creative Activities for Young Children is a rare combination of an art and curriculum text that has gotten better with every edition. Teachers, parents and child care providers will value this teaching resource that not only promotes creativity in children but also encourages readers to exercise their own creativity. This text provides a sound theoretical base for the hundreds of practical activities in the arts and across the curriculum. This updated edition addresses the No Child Left Behind law, teacher certification standards, differentiated instructions and learning styles as they relate to early childhood education. It also places a greater emphasis on adapting materials and activities to children with special needs and on more activities to meet specific learning styles. New sections entitled "This One's for You!" and "Think About It" provide fun and thought-provoking information on research and related topics, making each chapter informative and enjoyable for the reader.
