More and more teachers of young children are being asked to develop their curriculum according to standards. This essential resource will guide educators as they grapple with a plethora of issues, questions, and practices surrounding the use of standards in the early childhood classroom. Carol Seefeldt, well-known educator and bestselling author, offers teachers an overview of the standards movement; describes the status of standards in early education; presents the issues around the design and selection of standards; and provides practical strategies for effectively implementing standards with young children (preschool through the early primary grades). This book provides both the background knowledge and a working understanding of standards to help teachers: successfully judge and select standards; design appropriate ways of using and working with standards; and develop appropriate assessment strategies. Illustrated with children's work, this "how-to" guide: provides practical illustrations of how standards can be used to benefit early childhood classrooms, including many sample activities; demonstrates how to work with standards in the separate subject areas of the sciences, arts, language and literacy, mathematics, and social studies; offers ideas for including all children, such as those with special needs and those just learning English; and describes a project, Children Study Their Play Yard, illustrating how thematic, standards-based, problem-solving learning can be integrated into the total curriculum.

The most pressing challenge in early childhood education today is to find a way to meet the standards within a developmentally appropriate approach. In this book, two active early childhood educators provide teachers with resources to bring content alive in the daily, action-based pre-K and Kindergarten classrooms, and ways to document it. The book includes lists of key content ideas--coordinated with learning standards in science, mathematics, social studies, and the communication arts--to guide teacher observations of, and interactions with, young children. Chapters focus on ways to extend children's emerging use of content in the block, manipulative, sand and water, drama, expressive arts, and literacy centers, and link to the development of themes. Book features include: lists of key ideas in the content areas; examples of conversations that nurture children's emerging content understandings; vignettes from the field illustrating teachers' experiences of embedding content into center activities, along with photographs; and sample forms for documenting children's learning as they meet the standards in a variety of contexts.

"Supporting Boys' Learning is a wonderful addition to any teacher's library. It supplies a good balance of data, analysis, and plenty of practical tips to help get the best out of the boys in the classroom. I would encourage principals to buy a copy and leave it in the teachers' lounge. It is a great read for teachers who want to get the best out of all their children."---Peg Tyre, journalist and author of The Trouble with Boys Supporting Boys' Learning will help teachers develop knowledge and strategies for teaching boys in ways that build on their strengths, respect their individual development levels, and adhere to principles of child development. There is a growing body of research that has raised concerns about boys' vulnerability in terms of social-emotional development, referral to special education, and academic pressures in school, with African-American and Latino boys most at risk. Responding to these concerns, this user-friendly guide provides strategies for improving teaching practice. The text is based on the work of a group of teacher educators and includes examples from the field, reflections on practice, classroom strategies, and key resources. The strategies and recommendations for practice documented here have all been field tested by pre-service teachers under the supervision of the contributors to this book.

Early Childhood Curriculum for All Learners: Integrating Play and Literacy Activities is designed to teach early childhood professionals about the latest research on play and early literacy and then to show them practical methods for adapting this research to everyday classroom practices that will encourage the development of learning skills. The authors link solid, play-based research to specific developmentally appropriate practices. By combining these two areas, the text demonstrates that academic learning and play activities are highly compatible, and that children can and do develop academic skills through play. In addition, the text focuses on socio-dramatic play, a recently acknowledged, essential aspect of child-initiated play interactions. It provides specific strategies that link these interactive behaviors with the early academic skills needed for the initial primary grades. Implementation of the information presented in this book will enable children to experience a richer transition into primary education classrooms.
