Young children's thinking : studies of some aspects of Piaget's theory by Millie Almy( Book )

31 editions published between 1966 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two studies deal with the thought processes children display when faced with problems involving the concepts of quantity and number. Involving children in kindergarten, first grade and second grade, the studies use piaget's theories in both a cross-sectional and a longitudinal approach to study children's thinking in an educational setting. To determine the validity of the stages of thought as described by piaget, the studies deal with one aspect of a child's thinking, his ability to conserve number and quantity as revealed in three tasks. Studied also are how that ability relates itself to other intellectual abilities and to school readiness and achievement, and how that ability changes and develops over time. Results of the cross-sectional study confirmed the relevance of piaget's theory to the study of young children. Results of the longitudinal study confirmed cross-sectional results and underlined the relevance of the child's progress in conservation of number and quantity to his performance in the classroom. The document includes a bibliography and tables. This document is available from teacher's college press, teacher's college, columbia university, new york 10027. (ef)

Recent research on play : the perspective of the teacher by Millie Almy( Book )

4 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper provides an extensive discussion of children's play, including examination of theoretical, developmental, measurement, and classroom or playgroup perspectives for teachers of children between the ages of 2 and 6 years. The first section offers a brief overview of theories of play and describes several distinguishing features of play, such as intrinsic motivation and attention to means rather than ends. The development of play behavior is discussed in the second section. Specific attention is given to sensorimotor play and, more extensively, to aspects of symbolic play such as self/other relationships, object substitution, and dramatic and constructive play. The third section discusses factors contributing to individual differences in play behavior: handicaps, gender, and childrearing influences. Suggestions as to how teachers can facilitate children's play are given in the fourth section; in addition, the problem of justifying the inclusion of play in the preschool curriculum is discussed.
