This is an exciting, hands-on resource comprising over 200 whole-class lesson plans. These can be used with a class in their very first week at school in Year 1 right through to their last week in Year 6. Each lesson plan focuses on a text, provides prompts for discussion and gives clearly explained, engaging activities to suit all learning styles. The lesson plans are based on 152 popular children's books. There are many cross-curricular opportunities, with specific links to literacy, particularly through the drama, speaking and listening plans of the Renewed Primary Strategy. The scheme also includes Circle Time games specially selected for their positive effect on the emotional well-being of the child. The author, who is an Advanced Skills Teacher, spent two years developing the scheme of work. Each lesson plan has been tried and tested in many schools and is steeped in excellent primary practice. The scheme is designed to support the aims of the Every Child Matters agenda. The plans are differentiated by year group and are set out in modules which each last for six weeks, making the resource a manageable format for class teachers to use and an ideal solution to the delivery of SEAL Primary.

Over the past 15 years, there has been a pronounced trend toward a particular type of picturebook that many would label "postmodern." Postmodern picturebooks have stretched our conventional notion of what constitutes a picturebook, as well as what it means to be an engaged reader of these texts. The international researchers and scholars included in this compelling collection of work critically examine and discuss postmodern picturebooks, and reflect upon their unique contributions to both the field of children’s literature and to the development of new literacies for child, adolescent, and adult readers.

Possibly the only drawback about the bestselling How To Be A Woman was that its author, Caitlin Moran, was limited to pretty much one subject: being a woman. In MORANTHOLOGY Caitlin 'gets quite chatty’ about many subjects, including cultural, social and political issues which are usually left to hot-shot wonks and not a woman who sometimes keeps a falafel in her handbag. These other subjects include... Caffeine | Ghostbusters | Being Poor | Twitter | Caravans | Obama | Wales | Paul McCartney | The Welfare State | Sherlock | David Cameron Looking Like Ham | Amy Winehouse | ‘The Big Society’ | Big Hair | Nutter-letters | Michael Jackson's funeral | Failed Nicknames | Wolverhampton | Squirrels’ Testicles | Sexy Tax | Binge-drinking | Chivalry | Rihanna’s Cardigan | Party Bags | Hot People| Transsexuals | The Gay Moon Landings

50 Early Childhood Literacy Strategies is the answer to the early childhood teacher's dilemma of how to teach reading to children 3, 4, and 5 years of age as mandated by the state and national governments. This book presents an easy-to-use, easy-to-understand approach involving young children's own emergence into the world of speaking and listening, reading and writing. Teachers will quickly learn what picture books and activities to use with children, how to use them, and how children can benefit from their use. They will learn what to expect as young children's writing emerges from scribbles to pictures and real words. Finally, they will come to terms with the concept of emergent literacy as it appears in preschool children and evolves into conventional literacy as it is taught in elementary school. A brief introduction to each strategy–Discussing the literacy concept associated with the strategy and what the particular strategy teaches. Sets the stage for students understanding of when, how, and with whom to use each strategy – supplies the background needed to create additional strategies to reinforce each lesson. Use of materials, content, and activities found in most early childhood classrooms–Blocks, chalk, crayons, computers, cooking, dolls, dramatics, finger paints, puppets, scissors, storytelling, etc. Makes the books' strategies immediately useful for prospective teachers' first classrooms – allows these fifty ideas to serve as templates for hundreds of additional strategies. Photos, children's art, and pupils' actual writing samples–Accompanying each strategy. Offer a genuine picture of each strategy's desired outcome – illustrate real children's authentic literacy efforts and show actual children actively engaged in each strategy.

“How can we tell where children stand in their physical, cognitive, socioemotional, language, and creative development? Do we test them? Measure them? Compare them?” This textbook teaches students how to become observers and how to document their findings using one tool: The Child Development Checklist . The author posits that the best method to determine a child's strengths is for the teacher to observe the young child in the regular classroom based on a particular set of criteria. The reasons for assessing children in this manner are: It allows students of child development to gain an in-depth understanding of real children and their sequences of growth. It helps teachers of young children to become aware of each child's growth and to support individual development with appropriate activities and materials. Once the child's strengths have been assessed, the book then provides suitable lesson plans and activities to support the child's development. New To This Edition: NEW! Presents new information on how to become an observer--How to get started, when and how long to observe, what to look for in children, and how to record. This is critical for new students and teachers. (See Chapter 1 Ex. p. 9, 11, 12) NEW! Suggests a lternative approaches to child assessment–These include visual documentation, i.e. art, photos, videos, and using documentation panels. This is Important for evaluating both children and program. (See Chapter 1 Ex. pp 23-26). NEW! Offers new information on self-esteem in young children–Explains how and why a child should develop a secure attachment relationship with a teacher. Sets the stage for child's success. (See Chapter 3 Ex. pp 81-82). NEW! Includes new research on the brain showing the importance of physical exercise for children–The research shows that exercises increases brain synapses that improve permanent memory development.
