Developing Brain by Marilee B. Sprenger

Book Description

Educator Marilee Sprenger, author of the best-selling Becoming a "Wiz" at Brain-Based Teaching, takes us on an informative and enlightening year-by-year tour of children's brain development from birth through age 8. Highlighting the basics of brain structures, vocabulary, and research from the early childhood educator's point of view, the author discusses language/reading development, physical/motor development, and social/emotional development for each age level. The book covers brain-compatible teaching practices that make connections with the way a child's brain learns and that are linked to NAEYC's twelve principles for working with young children. Each chapter features a collection of developmentally appropriate activities ready for use in classroom or child care settings, as well as a child development checklist. This resource is ideal for preservice and inservice teachers and school staff working in early childhood settings.
