Book links

I'm needing a place to "store" a list of books on discovery based learning, so I'm putting them here. They're good books - the first two more than the third, but that one kind of rounds out the view, so to speak. Very useful for anyone trying to understand how young children, in particular, go about learning "the 3Rs" without any kind of instruction.


Much More Than the ABC's: The Early Stages of Reading and Writing (Paperback) by
Judith Schickendanz

Literacy Through Play (Paperback) by
Gretchen Owocki

More Than Counting: Whole Math Activities for Preschool and Kindergarten (Paperback) by
Sally Moomaw (Author), Brenda Hieronymus (Author)

If I find more I'll add them later - if anyone reading this would like to suggest others, I'd appreciate that, too. I seem to get used as a resource.... that's what I get for being such a know-it-all, I suppose.

essay by Morgan

What not to do at a stoplight
By Morgan

Feeding your kittens and cat
Drinking water
Dreaming that you’re karate chopping the tv
Lighting candles
Getting the mail
Calling your friends
