Fifty Early Childhood Guidance Strategies presents an easy-to-use, easy-to-understand positive approach involving the young children themselves in eliminating their inappropriate behavior. Teachers and student teachers alike will quickly learn what to expect when children first enter the early childhood classroom, how to assess children's behavior, how to redirect it, and how to get children involved in controlling their own actions. The 50 strategies include appropriate child behavior categories such as communicating feelings and conflict conversion, inappropriate behavior categories such as possession conflicts and power struggles, and teacher concerns such as intervention (how and when) and time-out (using or not using). Each of the strategies is illustrated by photos taken by the author showing children and teachers engaged in the activities discussed. Children's art and appropriate books are also included where appropriate.

50 Early Childhood Literacy Strategies is the answer to the early childhood teacher's dilemma of how to teach reading to children 3, 4, and 5 years of age as mandated by the state and national governments. This book presents an easy-to-use, easy-to-understand approach involving young children's own emergence into the world of speaking and listening, reading and writing. Teachers will quickly learn what picture books and activities to use with children, how to use them, and how children can benefit from their use. They will learn what to expect as young children's writing emerges from scribbles to pictures and real words. Finally, they will come to terms with the concept of emergent literacy as it appears in preschool children and evolves into conventional literacy as it is taught in elementary school.
