Early childhood literature based curriculum

Pictures_from_previous_computer_8-22-09_093One of the greatest pleasures in life is a great read. Books are a window to places we can often only dream of. A well-written book can open perspective about nearly everything, which in turn can dramatically change not only a viewpoint, but also a person's "way of being".

In the early childhood classroom, some of the best lessons are born of fun and fanciful, or true and touching, children's literature. There are several ways to approach literature-based teaching, and this series of articles will attempt to describe three of these: author based, thematic based and repetitious (or predictable) literature.

Whether in the early childhood classroom or working with your child at home, a comfortable space for reading and either an adjacent, or an incorporated, space for writing is important when considering environment setup. When reading/writing areas are accessible to block and imaginative play spaces, a thread of continuity becomes present in the learning process and math (spatial concepts, quantitative reasoning), language development (reading and writing) run right into imaginative play.

Cross-curricular activities result in print rich environments and children often learn at an extremely accelerated rate. Old adages become old for a reason, and certainly "Reading is the magic key that takes you where you want to be." How to make the most of early childhood literature will be explored in this series of articles and there is certainly a vast wealth of resources.

  • Be a Competitive Human Resources Professional With an MBA 3 Sep 2015 | 8:00 am

    "My dad actually owned a business," says Mansdoerfer, who's a student at the Broad Graduate School of Management at Michigan State University and J.D. candidate at the university's law school. In human resources classes, students learn about training and developing employees, recruiting and other skills that human resources managers need to bring in and keep strong workers. Many schools offer a specialized master's degree in human resources as well as an MBA with a human resources focus, but choosing the latter option gives students a wider knowledge of general business practices as well as human resources skills, experts say.

  • Teachers in This Broke School District Are Working for Free 2 Sep 2015 | 3:54 pm

    Teachers in This Broke School District Are Working for FreeIt was déjà vu on Wednesday for teachers and staff at the Chester Upland School District in Pennsylvania: Three years ago they made headlines for continuing to work despite their bankrupt school district’s being unable to pay them. On Wednesday, owing to the district running a deficit and a delay in Pennsylvania’s legislature passing a state budget, educators in the 3,800-student district 20 minutes west of Philadelphia welcomed students back to campus despite not knowing when they’ll be paid. “We have no idea when that first paycheck is coming, but we’re going to stay here as long as we’re financially able,” Michele Paulick, president of the Chester Upland Education Association, told The Philadelphia Inquirer last week after the union’s members agreed to keep working despite learning that the district would be unable to make payroll on Sept. 9.
