Active for Life: Developmentally Appropriate Movement Programs for Young Children

Continue shopping

Description:

Most young children love vigorous physical activity, but research shows that they may not continue to be active throughout childhood and beyond if they lack a foundation of skills. Early childhood educators need to ensure children's learning of the physical skills as well as movement concepts necessary to start them toward active and healthy lives. This book provides guidance on what high-quality movement programs should include: environments designed for young children, effective curriculum components, developmental approaches to teaching, planned assessment, and more. Unlocking children's movement potential will inspire a love of physical activity for years to come.

Description:

The basic concepts of developmentally appropriate practice aren?t difficult or arcane, but they can be understood wrongly or incompletely?and often are! This resource articulates and illustrates the core concepts in simple, memorable ways, including classroom examples and other techniques.

Based on NAEYC?s 2005 book Basics of Developmentally Appropriate Practice, by Carol Copple and Sue Bredekamp, this video gives learners a brief introduction to the foundational ideas of the early childhood field. The DVD is versatile enough to be shown as part of any beginner-level discussion of DAP. Some instructors and trainers will want to show it when learners are using Developmentally Appropriate Practice (#375) or other texts.
