Reading, Writing, Playing, Learning
This practical handbook shows teachers how to create a kindergarten learning environment in which children feel safe, comfortable and able to take risks. It offers innovative ways to encourage students to explore, experiment, discover, problem-solve and freely interact with one another. Based on extensive classroom practice, it demonstrates when teachers need to provide support, ask questions and provoke thinking, and when to back away and leave kids to their own devices.
Reading, Writing, Playing, Learning explores concrete suggestions for creating play-based learning within a culture of inquiry. The book discusses:
- Oral language
- Reading to and by children
- Shared and guided reading
- Reading to write and writing to learn
- Finding the "play" in word play
- Celebrating diversity and meeting the needs of all learners
This remarkable book is committed to sculpting classrooms where children can learn and grow as they play.
