How many mugs do pre-school teachers receive as gifts from appreciative parents at the end of each year? How about giving something really useful for teachers as they refresh their energy and then go into planning their new year? Books... yes books, packed full of ideas and recommended by other pre-school teachers.
Here is my Christmas wish list:
A Survival Guide for the Preschool Teacher
from projects to classroom setup and management strategies and reproducibles, curriculum planning, learning centres, storytelling, nutrition and cooking and more.
Sensory Integration: A Guide for Preschool Teachers
This book helps to integrate sensory activities into the daily pre-school routine as well as helping to identify sensory avoiders, seekers, and under-responders.
Jump into Literacy: Active Learning for Preschool Children
combines children's love of active games with over 100 lively literacy activities.
Toddlers Moving and Learning: A Physical Education Curriculum has over 50 developmentally appropriate activities designed to help toddlers channel their energy in beneficial ways for success in all areas of learning.
Six Simple Ways to Assess Young Children document children's growth and development by observing them in their everyday activities.
If these books are not appealing to you can find more here at my book store for teachers and parents.
