ABOUT THE BOOK

Creative Sound Play for Young Learners: A Teacher's Guide to Enhancing Transition Times, Classroom Communities, SEL, and Executive Function Skills

A fun and engaging guide, Creative Sound Play invites you to use sound-making as a collaborative, play-based practice in your early childhood classroom-first to transform tricky transition times and ultimately to support your children's executive functioning development and social-emotional learning.

The book offers techniques and ideas for every teacher to reach every child in their classroom including verbal, nonverbal, and special needs children. Easy to integrate into all standard early years curricula, it focuses on three basic elements of sound: pitch, volume, and duration. The book features an "overview of the school year" calendar and an implementation guide, in addition to a variety of suggested sound-making activities that start out simply and, through the course of the book, expand to engage children's creativity in more dynamic ways. Creative Sound Play for Young Learners is key reading for any preschool teacher, leader, or parent.

Creative Sound Play for Young Learners: A Teacher's Guide to Enhancing Transition Times, Classroom Communities, SEL, and Executive Function Skills will be released on June 6, 2024, from the Routledge Taylor and Francis, Eye on Education Series.

Preorders are now available here.
