This tale of ants parading toward a picnic is “one of those rare gems capable of entertaining while it instructs” (Middlesex News). One hundred hungry ants march off single file to sample a picnic, but when the going gets too slow, they divide into two rows of fifty, then four rows of twenty-five . . . until they take so long that the picnic is gone! “The unexpected pairing of sophisticated art and light-hearted text lends this book particular distinction.” —Publishers Weekly “The illustrations . . . use a pleasing palette and energetic lines to depict ants with highly individual characters.” —Horn Book

This book follows students' natural progression from measuring with informal or nonstandard units to using standard units to measure such attributes as length, weight, angle and temperature. Activities extend students' learning to the measurement of two-and three-dimensional objects. Students work in a variety of lively real-world contexts, gathering measurement benchmarks in a classroom scavenger hunt and investigating the area of a rectangle while acting as owners of a sticker factory, for example. The supplemental CD-ROM features interactive electronic activities, master copies of activity pages for students and additional readings for teachers.

Developmentally Appropriate Practice: Curriculum and Development in Early Education, 3e is a thoughtful and comprehensive reference that is now even more effective with the addition of several new features and enhanced content. The book takes a topical approach and assumes some basic child development knowledge/experience, and is intended as a guide for thoughtful consideration of classroom and caregiver practices. In the first section, developmentally appropriate practice is discussed and explored, including an in-depth, extended section on the theory and research of play. Subsequent sections address environments such as physical, social/emotional, and cognitive/language. The coverage of these important environments is comprehensive and individually addresses appropriate practice for all early childhood age groups. The fifth section moves into a discussion of making changes for the teachers and caregivers and how to gain support for those changes. Well-known curriculum approaches are also explored in-depth, allowing the reader to understand how these approaches fit into the principles of developmentally appropriate practice. Some new features include ?What Would You Do?? and ?Think About It? sections that encourage further thought and discussion, as well as current reference and reading suggestions to allow the reader to continue the learning process on their own.
