Young children reinvent arithmetic : implications of Piaget's theory by Constance Kamii( Book )

16 editions published between 1984 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the foreword to this book, Inhelder states that its essential contribution is that "it transposed to actual reality Piaget's central epistemological thesis according to which mathematical thought is, from its most elementary manifestations, the product of the subject's activity that he characterized by the term 'reflective abstraction.'" The book advocates eliminating all traditional instruction in first grade arithmetic and replacing it with two kinds of activities: situations in daily living (such as voting) and group games. The sections in the book focus on: (1) theoretical foundation, with chapters on Piaget's theory of number and on the importance of social interaction; (2) objectives, including chapters on autonomy, numerals and place value, addition, and subtraction; (3) activities and principles of teaching; (4) how things appeared to the teacher, including a month-to-month account of using Piagetian-based games; and (5) evaluation and prospects for the future. The book, designed for preservice as well as in-service teachers, is based on research, as well as on personal experiences at the University of Geneva. (Mns)

Physical knowledge in preschool education : implications of Piaget's theory by Constance Kamii( Book )

22 editions published between 1975 and 1993 in French and English and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guided by Piaget's constructivist theory on how children learn, this book explores an innovative approach to teaching physical knowledge in preschool. Part 1 differentiates between "science education" and "physical-knowledge" activities, noting that physical-knowledge activities involve primarily movements of objects and changes in objects. This part further discusses the rationale for their use and the objectives that determine the principles of teaching physical knowledge. Part 2 is an account of different activities: rollers, target ball, inclines, water play, and the pendulum. Each activity is illustrated in terms of its planning, trial and evaluation. The actions of the children and the reactions of the teachers are also reported. The last part of the book stimulates the reader to go beyond the examples in the book and reveals how physical-knowledge activities can be invented and integrated into an ongoing program. Some of the sources for new ideas are games, objects, and toys as well as chapters on art, science, music, and outdoor play in early education contexts. Free play, snack time, outdoor play, and other incidental situations are suggested as ways to integrate the activities. (Bc)
Group games in early education : implications of Piaget's theory by Constance Kamii( Book )

18 editions published between 1980 and 2001 in English and held by 775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on Piaget's theory, this book discusses the educational value of group games for the young child's social and intellectual development, suggesting ways to select or modify both new and familiar games to make them more appropriate for children's learning. Part 1 of the book provides a theoretical introduction to what is meant by good group games and to why, according to Piaget's theory, these games have tremendous educational value. Part 2 gives concrete examples of games, details the teacher's actions in these games, and provides specific directions for playing many variations of eight basic types of games: aiming, races, chasing, hiding, guessing, cards, verbal commands, and board games. Part 3 begins with a chapter devoted to the issue of competition in group games, including discussion of educators' reasons for objecting to competition in group games, ways in which competitive games can contribute to children's development, and principles of teaching competitive group games. Following this, a discussion of some principles of teaching deriving from Piaget's theory and applying to all group games is presented. Part 3 concludes with pointers for each type of game presented in part 2. Finally, a review of the major pedagogical concepts of Piaget's theory is appended. (Author/MP)

Piaget, children, and number : applying Piaget's theory to the teaching of elementary number by Constance Kamii( Book )

8 editions published between 1976 and 1978 in English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper proposes a method for teaching number applying the conservation theory of Piaget in the classroom. It is suggested that number facts cannot be taught by social transmission, since there is a fundamental distinction between logico-mathematical and social knowledge. Conservation cannot be taught to non-conservers, but there are ways to utilize and guide children's natural interest in number. Workbook exercises, math time and cuisenaire rods are not among these. Recommended teaching techniques include: (1) teach number concepts when they are useful and meaningful to a child, when the child feels a need and interest in number arising out of his daily activities; (2) use language that illustrates logical quantification or the comparison of groups (I.E., "Bring enough straws for all the children"); (3) encourage children to verify an answer among themselves; (4) encourage children to make sets with movable objects; (5) figure out how children are thinking; and (6) encourage children in a general way to put all kinds of objects, events, and actions into relationships. Snack time, distribution of materials, group games, etc. can be utilized in the teaching of elementary number concepts. (Ms)
