New in the library!

We have two new books in the library on play-based learning in early childhood.

Let them play: an early learning (un)curriculum by Jeff A. Johnson and Denita Dinger.St. Paul, Minn: Redleaf Press, 2012.
Children’s play is focused, purposeful, and full of learning.  As children play, they master motor development, learn language and social skills, think creatively, and make cognitive leaps.  This resource is about organizing a program to support child-led play, and trusting children as capable and engaged learners.

Let’s play: (un)curriculum early learning adventures by Jeff A. Johnson and Denita Dinger.  St. Paul, Minn.: Redleaf Press, 2014.
This book contains 39 child-led, open-ended play adventures – and more than 225 play variations – that are packed with learning. Each chapter outlines an open-ended play adventure with instructions, photographs, and fresh ideas for children to explore everything from worms to magnets.
