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

20 editions published between 1984 and 2000 in English and held by 1,268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this fully revised second edition of the classic Young Children Reinvent Arithmetic, Constance Kamii describes and develops an innovative program of teaching arithmetic in the early elementary grades. Kamii bases her educational strategies on renowned constructivist Jean Piaget's scientific ideas of how children develop logico-mathematical thinking. Written in collaboration with a classroom teacher, and premised upon the conviction that children are capable of much more than teachers and parents generally realize, the book provides a rich theoretical foundation and a compelling explanation of educational goals and objectives
Physical knowledge in preschool education : implications of Piaget's theory by Constance Kamii( Book )

13 editions published between 1978 and 1993 in English and held by 762 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 724 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)

Early literacy : a constructivist foundation for whole language by Constance Kamii( Book )

8 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to consider early literacy education and whole language from the perspective of constructivist theory (which states that human beings acquire knowledge by building it from the inside in interaction with the environment) and research. More specifically, the book intends to show that the whole language movement is part of a larger revolution in thinking about learning and teaching, and to enable whole language advocates to explain, evaluate, and improve upon their beliefs and practices on the basis of a scientific, explanatory theory about how children acquire knowledge. The first four chapters of the book describe constructivism and the research supporting it, while the rest of the book deals with classroom practices and related issues such as assessment. The book's nine chapters and their authors are as follows: (1) "What is Constructivism?" (Constance Kamii); (2) "Literacy Acquisition and the Representation of Language" (Emilia Ferreiro); (3) "Principles of Spelling Found in the First Two Grades (Francois Siegrist and Hermina Sinclair); (4) "Spelling in Kindergarten: a Constructivist Analysis Comparing Spanish-Speaking and English-Speaking Children" (Constance Kamii and others); (5) "Learning to Read in New Zealand" (Brian Cutting and Jerry L. Milligan); (6) "Shared Book Experience: Teaching Reading Using Favorite Books" (Don Holdaway); (7) "Modeled Writing: Reflections on the Constructive Process" (Maryann Manning and Gary Manning); (8) "Reading to Know" (Barbara A. Lewis and Roberta Long); and (9) "An Approach to Assessment in Early Literacy" (Brenda S. Engel). Six pages of chapter notes and references, and 80 general references are attached. (Sr)

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

9 editions published between 1976 and 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 399 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)
