If you're a teacher or future teacher, you know children love to play. In Supporting Play in Early Childhood: Environment, Curriculum, Assessment, 2nd Edition, you will learn about the positive effects of play on children's social/emotional, cognitive, and physical development. You will learn how to assess a child's learning through play, making play a more practicable teaching mechanism. You will also learn step-by-step recommendations for establishing a classroom that promotes play and for developing play-based programs designed for children in specific age groups: infants and toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarten children, and primary-age children. Incorporating play into the program of special needs children is addressed in each age-specific section and in a separate chapter.
