Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Moving and Learning Across the Curriculum: More Than 300 Activities and Games to Make Learning Fun is now out in its' 2nd edition. Movement is the young child's preferred method of learning. This is because when a child physically experiences concepts, they understand them more completely and retain the information longer. Retention has been proven to increase when children's senses are involved in the learning process, and this book provides hundreds of activities that help to teach major concepts in the content areas of art, language arts, math, music, science, and social studies. The domains of child development are completely intertwined in the early years making it important to incorporate them all throughout the learning process. This book will show the early childhood professional how to educate the "whole child", covering all of the domains of child development which include physical, social/emotional, and cognitive. To truly educate the child, they must be recognized as thinking, feeling, moving human beings with the need to experience with all of their senses. Moving and Learning Across the Curriculum, 2e, provides the activities to achieve that level of learning with features including detailed lesson plans, outdoor alternatives, updated resources, and enhanced "curriculum connectors" with additional suggestions for children's literature and music. An ideal resource for the early childhood professional, this book offers everything needed to use movement as a teaching tool.

Synopsis:

PERFECT FOR CHILDCARE EDUCATORS, CARE GIVERS AND STUDENTS ALIKE, research shows us that the more senses that are involved in the learning process, the greater the amount of information retained. Dr. Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences validates learning with the body and its parts. With Moving and Learning Across the Curriculum, children are given the opportunity to physically experience concepts and themes common to the six major content areas of art, language, mathematics, music, science, and social studies. They can, thus, process the concepts using a multimodal approach that ensures greater comprehension and retention.

Synopsis:

Children are experiential learners, acquiring knowledge through play, experimentation, exploration, and discovery. Moving and Learning Across the Curriculum gives children opportunities to understand concepts and themes common to the major content areas in the way that they learn best - by physically experiencing the concepts. The book's 315 activities and games are organized by the content areas of art, language, mathematics, music, science, and social studies. This is a one of a kind resource for educators who understand movement as a learning tool!
