Description of this Book
Organized by month for easy use, everyone will love the creative ideas that span the traditional areas of learning such as science, math, art, and music and movement, as well as the additional experiences including field trips, cooking, and holidays. Each activity includes instructions and a list of materials, plus possibilities for extending the activity further. Many also include lists of related children's books to further both literacy and imaginative play. Sample activities include: face painting and mask making; insect ABC's and outdoor games; dinosaur elections and other fun formats; and feather duster painting and other creative fun. Loved by children because they're fun, and by adults because they aid learning, the ideas in The Giant Encyclopedia will captivate children's imaginations and create wonderful opportunities for learning.

||The Giant Encyclopedia Of Monthly Activities: For Children 3 To 6, written by the team of teachers Kathy Charner, Maureen Murphy, and Charlie Clark for use by fellow teachers, is a vast compendium of inexpensive and educational classroom ideas. Organized by the recommended school month for each group of activities, suggestions range from -Everyone Needs a Nametag- (September) to -Pumpkin Math- (October), -Snow Painting- (January), -Paper Daffodils- (March) and much more. With over 600 options, ranging from projects that take a few minutes to long-running activities over the course of a month, The Giant Encyclopedia Of Monthly Activities is a near-inexhaustible treasure trove of clever ideas. Highly recommended for educators, day care centers, babysitters, and anyone else who works with young children. - Midwest Book Review
