The Big Book of Reading, Rhyming and Resources: Programs for Children, Ages 4-8

Libraries Unlimited, 2005 - 200 pages

Promote reading and literacy with this wonderful assortment of lively, fast-paced, fun-filled children's programs specifically designed for children aged 4 through 8. You and the children will delight in such program themes as Creepy Crawlies, Forest Friends, Frosty Frolics, and After School Adventures. The book presents an entertaining mix of multisensory activities that appeal to a variety of literacy levels and learning styles--rhymes and songs, awesome activities, crafty crafts, and great games.

Unlike other programming guides, this one uses a developmental approach with literature-based activities fitted to specific learning needs. More than an idea book, it includes all the nuts and bolts for initiating children's programs--from foundations and guidelines for understanding various stages of learning to everything you need to get started: book lists, step-by-step instructions, reproducible patterns and illustrations, even tips on publicity and public relations. Whether you're a novice or a seasoned children's programmer, this book gives you fresh programming ideas that foster lifelong literacy and love of reading. Grades PreK-3.
