Summary for book:
Written by a retired kindergarten teacher with over 25 years of experience, this handbook is designed to bridge the gap between home and school. It describes 260 sequential activities, each of which is based on a different concept. Most activities require materials usually found in the home. An activity is provided for each week of the child's life from birth through the fourth year. Activity guides are written in language that is easy to understand and include statements of the ways in which the activity promotes growth in different areas of development. A brief evaluation follows each experience to provide information on what the desired outcome should be from each activity. The preface offers additional suggestions for implementing the activities.
