✏Kodaly in the Kindergarten Classroom Book Summary : Since the mid-twentieth century, Zoltán Kodály's child-developmental philosophy for teaching music has had significant positive impact on music education around the world, and is now at the core of music teaching in the United States and other English speaking countries. Kodály in the Kindergarten Classroom is the first comprehensive handbook to update and apply the Kodály concepts to teaching music in early childhood classrooms. Kodály in the Kindergarten Classroom provides teachers with a step-by-step road map for developing children's performance, creative movement, and literacy skills in an organic and thoughtful manner. Through six years of field-testing with music kindergarten teachers in the United States, Great Britain, and Hungary (the home country of Zoltán Kodály), authors Micheál Houlahan and Philip Tacka have developed a methodology specifically for 21st century classrooms. Houlahan and Tacka use the latest research findings in cognition and perception to create a system not only appropriate for kindergarteners' particular developmental stages but also one which integrates vertically between kindergarten and elementary music classes. The methods outlined in this volume encourage greater musical ability and creativity in children by teaching kindergarteners to sing, move, play instruments, and develop music literacy skills. In addition, Kodály in the Kindergarten Classroom promotes critical thinking, problem solving, and collaboration skills. Although the book uses the Kodály philosophy, its methodology has also been tested by teachers certified in Orff and Dalcroze, and has proven an essential guide for teachers no matter what their personal philosophy and specific training might be. Over 100 children's books are incorporated into Kodály in the Kindergarten Classroom, as well as 35 detailed lesson plans that demonstrate how music and literacy curriculum goals are transformed into tangible musical objectives. Scholarly yet practical and accessible, this volume is sure to be an essential guide for kindergarten and early childhood music teachers everywhere.

✏The Winter Count Book Summary : The chief joy of travelling comes from getting from where you were to where you choose to be, on time. A close second would be finding that your luggage has almost matched your trip and can be found on arrival. Unexpectedly high on the list of pleasures, though, are chance encounters. Seemingly dealt by fate at random, your seatmates may leave lasting impressions. They may quietly change your life. A bucket list is a list of experiences or achievements that a person writes down, when young, and crosses off as each is accomplished. Improbable items on the list may approach one hundred. They help give a sense of meaning to life, of progress, of winning in a competition to reach the writers dreams. A bucket list seems to symbolize purposeful living. The term relates to what people set out to grasp before they kick the bucket. The motivational value is obvious. A word for the opposite kind of life is hard to propose. It would be a life, like the one that is the subject of this book; made up of unplanned reactions to unexpected events. Such a life might be unachieving or hum drum. It could, as easily, be striking. It could be serene carefree, lucky or unlucky, looking back. Most readers, like this author, will not have a bucket list. Life unfolds as it may. Like snow flakes, no two haphazard lives will be identical. The chance events of life can, just as forcefully, change the outcomes of carefully planned and structured lives. The value to you, as a traveller, is to recognize the balance of opportunity and effort that colours all our lives, in whatever order those two influences may come. Here, then, is your opportunity for a chance encounter. If you knew the author in one of the two dozen or more scenarios of your shared life, this is your chance to reminisce. What came before and what came after, in his life or in your own? How did it all come about? How did it all come out? If you have never met the author, here is a different opportunity. In a few hours you can follow what came to be written on the blank slate of one of your companions on lifes journey. You can experiece a different life. You can be assured that your arrival (with your luggage) and your perceptions will end with new discoveries and satisfaction. Enjoy your trip.Enjoy your companion. You can begin to do both, now, by buying the book.

✏Wired Up Book Summary : For many years now, studies rejecting the idea of a direct causal link between the media and children's behaviour and beliefs, have been generating insights into children's interactions with all kinds of media forms. This book is designed as an accessible introduction to these important research findings, for students of cultural and communication studies, psychology, and education; for professionals working with children and young people, and in the media industry; and for parents. 'Wired Up' comprises separate studies of a wide range of electronic media forms including television, video, computer games and the telephone, and includes coverage of a broad age-range, from pre-school children to adolescents and young adults. It provides insights into such diverse issues as the gendered nature of media consumption, the role of parental regulation and peer groups, and the significance of narrative, realism and morality.
