Product Description

Service Learning in the PreK3 Classroom is based on field trials the authors conducted with over 3,500 students and 215 educators as part of a three-year grant to infuse service learning into Lake and Joness early childhood teacher education program at Florida State University. During this time, Lake and Jones realized the need for a resource written to help primary teachers, administrators, and early childhood professionals increase their understanding of service learning and its role in the early childhood classroom. Rich in both theory and practice, the book reflects the tenets of the National Association for the Education of Young Childrens (NAEYC) developmentally appropriate practices (DAP), combining community service with differentiated curriculum-based learning to meet the academic and social needs of young children in meaningful ways. The sample lesson plans in the book are based on tried and tested classroom projects and correlated to national service learning, Head Start, and core content standards. An accompanying CD-ROM offers customizable versions of the books dozens of forms and templates for lesson planning, assessment, and more. It also includes a PowerPoint presentation for use in preservice and professional development.

Service Learning in the PreK3 Classroom is chockfull of service learning opportunities that support high academic standards and, at the same time, foster childrens social development by teaching them to be good citizens.
