Rituals and traditions in preschool programs have the power to

Create a caring culture that fosters the love of each other and the love of learning. Build lifelong rituals and traditions that support social, emotional, and academic success. A must-read! —Becky Bailey, Author/Developer, Conscious Discipline Program

This wonderful book reminds teachers and parents that traditions and rituals connect us to our heritage, help us create and maintain our identity, and affirm our school and family values.

Rituals and Traditions

• Connect children, families, and staff • Foster a sense of belonging • Create a positive learning environment The information in this book answers the questions of why rituals and traditions are important and how teachers can incorporate them into their daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly plans to create a supportive, caring community.

—Joanne Stokowski, Lead Teacher and Mentor Teacher, D. Scott Hudgens, Jr. Early Education Center, Lawrenceville, GA

—Makai Kellogg, Preschool Teacher, School for Friends, Washington, DC

Jacky Howell, MA, has been an early childhood educator, consultant, and trainer for more than 40 years in the Washington metropolitan area. She currently writes a column for TYC called Intermission.

J. Howell & K. Reinhard

This book is a preschool teacher’s number one resource for building community and promoting social and emotional learning. Individualizing rituals that are special to not only the child but the caregiver as well, and that reflect their personal relationship based on an understanding of the child’s needs, can truly transform the culture of a classroom.

Nita Copley continues to lead the way in promoting mathematics for early childhood that is both child-centered and teacher-friendly. The new edition of The Young Child and Mathematics will be a valuable resource to all educators striving to provide the best educational experiences to the youngest learners.

The Young Child and Mathematics, 2d ed.

This second edition of The Young Child and Mathematics reflects recent developments in

The Young Child and Mathematics Second Edition

—Douglas Clements, SUNY Distinguished Professor and coauthor, Learning and Teaching Early Math: The Learning Trajectories Approach

The Young Child and Mathematics is a must-have for every teacher who works with young children. Copley’s approach to teaching math engages the children and builds on their inquisitiveness. The vivid vignettes and drawings make this book come alive. Readers will come away feeling confident that “I, too, can do this with my students!” —Valerie Johse, elementary math specialist, Pearland Independent School District, Texas

In this updated edition of The Young Child and Mathematics, Juanita Copley helps teachers understand what foundational math knowledge children need. I especially enjoy the videos of her own masterful teaching: it’s so useful to see these demonstrations of challenging, engaging curriculum and instructional strategies. Most importantly, Copley demonstrates that young children are eager, enthusiastic, and capable math learners!

I appreciate and adapt in my own work the teacher-to-child, child-to-teacher, and child-to-child dialogue that is interspersed throughout The Young Child and Mathematics. These real-life episodes allow the teachers I train to connect pedagogical content to their children’s informal mathematics understanding.

Cate Heroman is education chair and vice chair of Knock Knock Children’s Museum in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Cate’s book provides practical suggestions and rich examples that every early childhood teacher can use to extend learning. Brimming with great ideas to support young children to become thinkers, problem solvers, and engineers. —Judy Jablon, Executive Director, Leading for Children, and author of Coaching with Powerful Interactions I did not know much about makerspaces, but after reading this book I truly feel like I know what to do in my classroom. The use of literary predicaments relates engineering to the child’s world, and the design challenges offer an interdisciplinary connection. —Gretchen Yatzook, Kindergarten Teacher, Flanders Elementary School Cate moves away from the standard science area and addresses STEM by inspiring children to explore, discover, and create their own solutions to real problems. I love the connection to children’s literature and wealth of practical design challenges! A wonderful resource for teachers and families.
