Overview

Group Time Activities A to Z presents a detailed lesson plan format of fun and interesting group time activities for young children ages two and up. The child-centered activities in this text spotlight music, large and small muscle procedures, cognitive abilities, and games that are easy to understand and follow. Each section of the text will enable teachers and families to find group time activities for a theme-based curriculum, to incorporate a letter of the week, or to provide a spur of the moment exercise. Many different choices are given for each targeted alphabet letter, and the activities focus on such concepts as holidays, animals, healthy habits, the senses, shapes, the seasons, literature, and much, much more. A "Helpful Hints" section shares tried and true suggestions to make the group time experience easy and enjoyable, and a supply list of materials shows that most items are inexpensive and easy to acquire. Also included is a sample family letter that encourages active participation from all families. This wonderful resource focuses on a variety of concepts that preschoolers can relate to and grow with. Children, teachers, and families alike will enjoy the shared experiences of learning together!
