Summary

Early Education Curriculum: A Child's Connection to the World presents a developmentally appropriate early education curriculum in a clear, easy-to-read style. This practical resource and reference guide demonstrates how to plan a curriculum that relates to childrens' needs, abilities, interests, and cultural diversity.

The chapters explore language and literacy, puppets, dramatic play, art, sensory centers, music and movement, math, science, and social studies as well as multicultural/anti-bias and special needs activities. For this edition, expanded children's literature selections, including books to nurture inclusivity and an in-depth interview with Sesame Street's "Rosita" are included.

Teacher resources include updated extensive references and readings, examples of early education room arrangements and lesson plans, publications, educational materials, services and internet website listings.
