Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
A companion to the 2005 Learning Center Activities for Children 3 to 6, this book of activities is aimed at teachers, caregivers, and parents of the youngest children, and activities are submitted by other teachers and caregivers around the country. An introduction to the three age ranges from birth to twelve months, one to two years, and two to three years is provided with developmental tasks for each. Though learning through exploration and discovery is mentioned, it could be emphasized more for these age groups. Some inexperienced teachers and caregivers tend to use curriculum guides as time for "lessons" rather than emphasizing the teachable moment among individual children. The book is organized according to activity beginning with "Arrival" and ending with "Working with Families." In between are eighteen different areas including games, language, sensory, snack, and so on. "Under Arrival," for instance, activities are designed for each age group and include materials and step-by-step instructions on what to do. The teacher submitting the activity is noted. Occasional black-and-white illustrations are provided for clarity. A children's book index as well as a general index are included.

    A must-have for teachers and parents of infants and toddlers!!!

    The activities in this book are wonderful! They are simple and require materials you can make or find around the house or classroom. The best part is this book is written by teachers, so I know the activities have been tried before. My book has little sticky notes on almost every page. I change some of the activities to meet my children's needs or the 'theme of the week,' while others are enjoyed again and again, just as they are written in the book. I love flipping through the pages and reading other teachers' ideas. It sparks my creativity. I used many of the activities from "The Giant Encyclopedia of Preschool Activities" when I worked with that age group. I am so glad I found this book with activities for Infants.
