The best ways to intentionally plan for young children's learning

Learning can happen during every minute of a child's day when you plan and teach with intention. This how-to resource provides four planning and reflecting frameworks to help you bring engaging experiences into your classroom. It describes a methodical cycle that encompasses the many elements of a successful classroom—a process of planning, implementing, observing, reflecting, and individualizing curriculum—that helps build children's academic and social skills.

With step-by-step guidance and planning forms to nurture children's joy of learning, this book will help you

  • Incorporate learning goals into daily routines and group activities
  • Support child-led, high-level, developmentally appropriate play
  • Write lesson plans that are intentional, child-focused, and responsive
  • Assess children in ways that show what they are learning and how they are applying skills
  • Identify and communicate the type of learning that occurs as children play
