Standards provide important benchmarks for student learning, but meeting them doesn’t mean you have to take away creativity, lively participation, and joyful learning. This resource offers research-based and field-tested strategies to address content standards in ways that nurture kindergartners’ natural love of learning. The authors show how projects, play, and other engaging learning experiences can help children reach standards in literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, and the arts. Also covers the transitions to and from kindergarten. Copublished with Corwin Press.
"This book clearly outlines how teachers can make standards the foundation of their practice without leaving behind what the best teachers know about creating challenging and ordered environments that respect the learning needs of young children."
