This book was written primarily to bridge the gap between home and school.
It contains weekly activities to correspond to the development patterns of
each age group from birth to age five. There are 260 age appropriate
activities that mainly use household items for materials.
Explicit detaisl are written in laymens language to ensure that people who
use this book will understand HOW to implement each activity. As a retired
kindergarten teacher with over 25 years experience I know that many gaps
in learning can be prevented if children are subjected to brief,
stimulating and challenging experiences at the appropriate age and
development level. Each exercise takes about 10 minutes.
