Innovative, practical, and easy to use, Creative Materials and Activities for the Early Childhood Curriculum is the ideal research-based resource for helping all children from infancy through grade five learn in, through, and with the arts, while meeting national and state standards. With a focus on teaching the creative arts and other subjects in ways that engage children’s minds and bodies, it looks at the teacher’s role from multiple perspectives by addressing the concepts and importance of creativity, classroom environment, planning, and assessment. Included are over 400 standards-based activities, an abundance of children’s literature suggestions, arts-infused content-area chapters, differentiated strategies across age and grade levels, technology suggestions, inspiring photos, practical examples, lesson segments, case studies, guidelines, and practical tips that can be put to immediate use in the classroom. Also included are a number of user-friendly approaches for using arts-based learning to meet the needs of diverse learners. The Enhanced Pearson eText features embedded video to illustrate key concepts and pop-up assessments.
