Group Time Activities A to Z presents a detailed lesson plan format of activities for young children ages two and up. The activities spotlight music, large and small muscle procedures, cognitive abilities, and games that are easy to understand and follow. Each section will help teachers and families to find large group activities for a theme based curriculum, to incorporate a letter of the week, or provide a spur of the moment filler. Many activity choices are given for each targeted alphabet letter. A "Helpful Hints" section shares tried and true suggestions to make the group time experience easy and enjoyable and a supply list of materials shows that most items are inexpensive and easy to acquire. Also included is a sample family letter that encourages active participation from all families. This wonderful resource focuses on a variety of concepts that preschoolers can relate to and grow with. Children, teachers, and families alike will enjoy the shared experiences of learning together as they participate in these enjoyable activities!
