This book is for teachers of children aged four-eight years. It shows how teachers can collaborate with parents in addressing children's educational and emotional needs. The author presents a variety of classroom management strategies, which teachers can choose from to strengthen children's social and academic competence. She believes that children's emotional literacy is as important as academic literacy. The book shows how teachers can set up individualized programmes which address the special social and emotional needs of children at particular risk with social and academic problems, because of problems such as learning difficulties, hyperactivity, impulsivity, attention deficit disorder, language and reading delays and aggressive behaviour. The author shows how teachers can integrate individualized interventions for such children in the mainstream classroom, while enhancing the social competence of all their students. Teachers understand that just as a child's cognitive competence is important for their ability to learn so too does a child's social competence and emotional security affect their ability to learn. This book will support teachers in developing social competence and emotional well- being in all children. Based on the empirically validated" Dinosaur Social Skills and Problem-solving Curriculum," this book emphasizes the management of hyperactive, inattentive and aggressive children. It includes practical scripts, games, activities, pictures and circle time role-plays and plans for use with children 4-8 years. Carolyn Webster-Stratton is an educational psychologist who for twenty years has been developing and evaluating interventions to help children with behaviour problems. She is the author of the well-known parent book: The Incredible Years: A Trouble-Shooting Guide for Parents fo Young Children (Ages 3-8 Years).
