    By Rheta DeVries & Christina Sales

    If you think the words young children and physics don’t belong together, think again. Based on the theories of Piaget and the work of DeVries and Sales, this book successfully makes the case for building a constructivist approach to physical science learning in the early childhood classroom.

    By Judy Harris Helm & Lilian Katz

    Completely updated and expanded, this book will help teachers use the project approach in child care centers, in preschools, and in kindergarten, first grade, and early childhood special education classrooms. For those new to using projects, the book introduces the approach and provides step-by-step guidance for conducting meaningful projects. Experienced teachers will find the teacher interviews, children’s work, photographs, and teacher journal entries used to document the project process in actual classrooms very useful.

    By Sydney L. Schwartz & Sherry M. Copeland

    The most pressing challenge in early childhood education today is to find a way to meet the standards within a developmentally appropriate approach.

This book includes lists of key content ideas—coordinated with learning standards in science, mathematics, social studies, and the communication arts—to guide teacher observations of, and interactions with, young children.
