How can early childhood teachers, administrators, and parents translate discoveries on early brain development into strategies that nurture cognitive growth? The key is to using the information gathered from neuroscience, cognitive psychology, and child development. The Developing Brain offers brain-compatible teaching practices for parents and teachers that are linked to principles for working with young children from the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
Bestselling author Marilee Sprenger covers the basic structure, vocabulary, and current research on the brain from an early childhood educator’s point of view and provides an abundance of illustrations and descriptions. This user-friendly guide includes:
Background information on brain development from birth through age two
Scenarios and snapshots of each year from age three through eight
Reproducible development checklists
Over one hundred brain-based activities for classroom or child care settings
And much more!
Through an understanding of the phases of language, motor, and social development at each age level, The Developing Brain will help both educators and parents create an enriching educational experience that enhances a child’s growth and fosters an enduring love of learning.
