Built around the 13 functional areas of the Child Development Associate (CDA) credential, this book is packed with the information future teachers need, whether they will teach in a preschool, child care center, Head Start program, or pre-Kindergarten setting. All of the basic classroom skills are covered, bolstered by a theoretical background and accompanied by practical ideas for applying book concepts with young children and families. Topics emphasize ways to create a calm and happy classroom atmosphere, how to handle emergencies in a way that dissipates children's fears, strategies for supporting children's mental and emotional health, and ideas for helping children cope with traumas in their life. Includes discussions of new picture books; more than 200 children's books; computer programs that support text-recommended hands-on activities; cultural influences on children; and expanded discussion of the ways children make friends. For practicing teachers, administrators, or volunteers seeking CDA certification

Preschool appropriate practices by Janice J Beaty( Book )

10 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Preschool Appropriate Practices 3rd Edition uses the creative approach, let the learning environment do the teaching, and speaks to college students as well as teachers in the field with practical applications based on current research. Each chapter is based on one of the learning centers in a preschool classroom, allowing college students and teachers alike to learn how to set up these centers in a self-directed environment. This approach encourages children 3-to-5-years old to become deeply involved in their own learning. A second important theme, let the teacher be a facilitator of learning, assists readers in their understanding of: 1) how to observe childrens developmental levels, 2) what developmentally appropriate activities to provide, 3) how to serve as a behavior model in these centers, and 4) how best to support children in their learning. Readers learn how to determine childrens developmental levels of manipulation, mastery, and meaning by observing their interactions with materials and one another. As the book title suggests, these activities integrate with the National Association for the Education of Young Childrens (NAEYC) developmentally appropriate practice (DAP), a nationally recommended set of early childhood practices. - Publisher

Packed with practical supports and strategies for teachers, such as how to set up a literacy-friendly environment; using music and art as natural languages; strengthening finger muscles for writing through 3-D art; developing visual representational skills in drawing, leading to writing; and using early literacy checklists to help understand children's capabilities, it provides many suggestions for using classroom materials and centers to support literacy. This book joins the expertise of a well-known early childhood author with a literacy expert to offer an effective approach for teaching early literacy in preschool, and is a valuable resource for early childhood professionals."--Publisher's website
