Book Description

Teachers, Home Schoolers and Parents: Keep Your Kids Happy as a Clam while Learning! CLAM (Cognitive Learning Activities & Manual) is for grades 2-7, with more advanced level activities taking it into grade 8.

Teachers, parents and other educators will love the CLAM learning program manual with definitions, explanations, and directions. Also included in CLAM:
• fifteen (15) cognitive language activities, “paper and pencil” challenges and games in language, creative and critical thinking skills. Kids explore and learn vocabulary and definitions, opposites, parts to wholes, sequencing, attributes, categorizing, if/then relationships (cause and effect), creating a scrapbook, keeping a journal and more.
• an extensive resource list with sellers of hundreds of craft ideas, patterns, recipes, instructions, and materials. Sources are for “hands-on” activities as: sewing, knitting, braiding, beading; scrap booking, cooking, assembling model kits, origami (Japanese paper folding), painting by color, jigsaw puzzles, scrabble and other games.
• CLAM stimulates the development of intellectual abilities, developing language, creative and critical thinking skills while at the same time developing key motor and behavioral skills.
• Kids will develop such learning behaviors and skills as: vocabulary development, understanding and following directions, attention, memory, hand-eye coordination, patterning, sharing and turn taking, along with the personal satisfaction in creating finished products.

Who should buy this book?
Home schoolers and other parents, classroom and special education teachers, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, after school programs, camps, and those planning special events such as birthdays or gatherings when engaging, interactive and educational activities are wanted.

For the active, eager learner superstar to the reluctant learner or even those with some special needs, the fun and engaging learning activities in the book provide both solitary and interactive activities for learning. Our activities have been developed to assist parents, classroom teachers, after school programs, camps, and others who may have a need for enjoyable enrichment activities to keep willing learners happily engaged.

Who needs this book?
• Teachers, parents and leaders of eager learners who need new activities.
• Less successful learners who engage in avoidance and need interesting activities as inducements to participate and become involved. The program and activities in CLAM will assist parents, therapists, classroom teachers, special education teachers, or others who have a need to get children involved in learning when they have demonstrated difficulty in doing so. For these children, the activities should be presented as inducements.

CLAM is written by two communication experts, one a Speech/Language Pathologist, cognitive language and education professional (M.Ed., Ph.D.), the other, with a varied career in which communication skills have been essential, in writing, advertising, and as a business consultant and publicist.
