    How can children be encouraged to make a lasting connection to nature? This program profiles the efforts of educators and parents to introduce children to the natural world and to involve them—through outdoor play, class activities, and their own creative work—in a process of outdoor discovery. Beyond the immediate benefits to child development that come with exploration and improvisational learning, the program documents how meaningful time spent outdoors can cultivate in children a permanent caring for nature—a crucial ethic of environmental responsibility.

    Young children need hands-on experiences to construct concepts about physical science. Teachers in this video provide a variety of physical science activities that meet science standards and extend those activities to promote higher level thinking. Children’s levels of scientific thinking and the scientific process as it relates to developmentally appropriate early childhood curriculum are highlighted. You will also see how science can be integrated throughout the classroom.

    By Susan B. Neuman & Kathleen Roskos

    Reading is about more than letters and sounds. Successful readers must draw upon a great deal of knowledge and vocabulary to make sense of that they read. This text presents five essential early literacy practices—creating a supportive environment; shared book reading; songs, rhymes, and word play; developmental writing; and play—providing the tools to link literacy to content knowledge in math, science, social studies, and art. From Scholastic.
