    Young children communicate their ideas, questions, and feelings in many ways. Teachers support children by offering them time, space, and materials to make up stories, move their bodies, and create works of art. Articles in the cluster "Supporting the Many Ways Children Communicate" cover communication skills in diverse young learners, helping the reluctant artist communicate, young girls discovering their voice, and designing and playing board games to foster communication and social skills.

    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.
