Four-year-old children are so full of wonder. The world is theirs to explore, and with the proper nurturing, they can accomplish many great things. In a typical preschool class, there will be 4-year-olds at several different levels of development. It is important for the preschool teacher to provide activities that meet the needs of all children so that they may accomplish with success and move to higher levels of development. This book is designed to assist early childhood educators in implementing literacy and other developmentally appropriate cognitive, social and emotional skills, as well as fine and gross motor activities. Research has proven that a four-year-old experience is perhaps the most important year in a child's life as it pertains to readiness to enter kindergarten. Each activity in the book has been "tried and tested" by colleagues; those who teach in a Pre-K four program. You will enjoy seeing the delight in these young learners as they embark on a fascinating, wondrous stage of development.
