Book Review of Everything for Spring: A Complete Activity Book for Teachers of Young Children: Activities for March, April, and May by Kathy Charner (Editor), Joan Waites (Illustrator)
Today is the first day of Spring! Did you know that flowers, birds, and rain teach math, science, dramatic play, and language skills? Everything for Spring by Kathy Charner provides nannies with the tools to provide fun learning activities for young children this Spring. And parents love when their caregivers make an extra effort to actively involve their children in learning activities that encourage their curiosity, learning, and high self-esteem.
Everything for Spring by Kathy Charner arranges the Spring activities by month and age level. Spring activities include musical beanbags, jumping on air, building a car, making kites, hats, gelatin rainbows, cards, greenhouses, and even mud painting. There are finger plays, poems, songs, games, art, dramatic play, language, math, music and movement, cooking, and more.
We highly recommend borrowing this book from the library (or purchasing it above) to use with young children this Spring. There are three books in the series: Everything for Winter: An Early Childhood Curriculum Activity Book and Everything for Fall: An Early Childhood Curriculum Activity Book to use year round.
