    Loose parts are natural or synthetic found, bought, or upcycled materials—acorns, hardware, stones, aluminum foil, fabric scraps, for example—that children can move, manipulate, control, and change within their play. Loose parts are alluring and beautiful. They capture children's curiosity, give free reign to their imagination, and encourage creativity.
    With more than 550 color photographs of many kinds of loose parts in real early childhood settings, classroom stories, and a dynamic overview, this book provides inspiration and information about the ways loose parts support open-ended learning, enhance play, and empower children.

    How do we help teachers deepen their understanding of the importance of play? How do we strengthen teachers’ ability to skillfully and intentionally guide children’s learning through play? When teachers engage in creative, open-ended play experiences, they learn firsthand the power of play. They also become more knowledgeable about the purposeful use of materials and intentional teaching strategies they can use to help children engage in open-ended play.

    By Dorothy S. Strickland & Shannon Riley-Ayers

    Today’s busy early childhood practitioners are being asked to do more, know more, and produce “results,” especially in the area of literacy development. Here is a resource that covers key aspects of literacy learning and teaching, including child development, standards, curriculum planning, assessment, professional development, and connections between school and home. Attention is given throughout to issues related to linguistic and cultural diversity, and all chapters end with “leadership strategies” that serve as a quick guide for action and reflection.
