  1. The Young Artist as Scientist: What Can Leonardo Teach Us?

    This is the first in-depth look at the important connections between the arts and science specifically for early childhood education (Preschool-Year 3). Highlighting their many commonalities such as the processes involved in creative problem-solving, the author draws on what we can learn from Leonardo da Vinci as the supreme artist-scientist. Every chapter begins with a vignette of Leonardo and relates his thinking to the development of children's ideas in the arts and STEM (STEAM). This fresh look at the interdisciplinary connections of the arts and science offers early childhood teachers and administrators a spectrum of tools for connecting the creative arts (art, movement, drama and music) to the STEM movement, 21st-century skills and developmentally appropriate skills.

  5. Readers Front and Centre: Helping All Students Engage with Complex Texts

    Every teacher wants and expects their students to be reading increasingly complex texts, yet sometimes the gap between our expectations and our students' abilities seems wide and deep. It's tempting to look at that gap and step in to fill it for them, but then we'd be doing most of the "heavy lifting" - the understanding, analysis and interpretation that our students should be learning for themselves. Readers Front and Centre is an attempt to help teachers help their students take on identities as learners. Filled with examples of one-on-one conferences, small groups and whole-class scenarios, this essential book provides an accessible and inspiring model of how - and why - we need to put students at the front and centre of our teaching.

    Super Spellers is an approach to teaching spelling in a way that is research-based, focused, developmentally appropriate, and tied to authentic reading and writing.

Super Spellers first helps teachers understand what their students need through frequent formative assessments. The book then focuses on the scope of spelling instruction and goes deeper into teaching more words and directly teaching spelling strategies to increase students' word-solving skills. Once kids are comfortable and competent spellers they become super readers and writers, too.
