Product Description

The Preschool Exploration activity guides borrow a bit of my favorite components of various preschool curriculum models. I use a plan, do and review approach similar to that in the High Scope curriculum. I also very much enjoy the Project Approach of actively involving the children in what they are learning. And, I love using the emergent curriculum model, allowing new ideas and concepts to flow from the children as they make discoveries about the topic. Finally, all activities have a strong focus on play and hands-on experimentation by the children.

Each Preschool Exploration Unit features:

~ Ways to change your activities & classroom learning centers (dramatic play/blocks, art, literacy/writing, math/manipulatives, music/movement, social studies, science/sensory, gross motor/outdoor play, group time) to help support the topic of study.

~ Sample open-ended questions to help the children begin thinking about the topic of study.

~ A teacher resource section is included to provide you with background factual information about the topic of study.

~ A sample web (organized brainstorming) on the topic of study.

~ Suggested investigations to enrich learning (these are teacher directed activities to further the topic).

~ Suggested activities to conclude the topic of study.

~ Patterns needed for several of the activities.

~ Parent newsletter (fully editable), with a focus on helping parents understand how children learn through play.
