Rich with examples from an experienced kindergarten teacher, "Great Beginnings" is a guide to teaching in a full-day kindergarten program. Beginning with a portrait of a typical day in her classroom, Resi Ditzel takes readers step by step through planning and organizing a kindergarten curriculum, with a special emphasis on literacy instruction. This practical resource includes a comprehensive look at the materials and structures needed to help young learners make the transition from home to school.The curriculum materials will be especially helpful to kindergarten teachers and district curriculum supervisors contemplating a move from a half-day to a full-day kindergarten program. Teachers in half-day kindergarten programs will also find a wealth of new ideas to enhance both the academic and social elements of their programs."Great Beginnings" combines proven kindergarten teaching methods with Resi Ditzel's student-centered classroom and teaching philosophy. Her students progress as independent thinkers, and they leave her classroom as strategic readers, confident writers, successful individuals, and excited learners. The importance of parental involvement is illustrated and put into practice through:
- Weekend Bags;
- read-aloud workshops;
- "Reading and Writing at Home, " a reproducible guide that can be distributed to parents.
