Summary

This booklet discusses the use of structured table activities in preschool programs in Australia and alternatives to these activities, such as free play. The booklet notes that structured table activities tend to be teacher-directed, passive, non-creative, and focus on goals set by the teacher. They often do not address the learning requirements of young children, who need to feel competent and independent, pursue their own interests, represent their own experiences, focus on processes rather than products, and interact with peers and adults. The booklet recommends programming designed to meet young children's needs, that is, child-centered, active, creative, and focused on goals set by the child. Indicators of children's use of independent learning strategies, interest in activities, and use of creative processes are also examined. The booklet concludes with guidelines for the appropriate use of table activities. (MDM)
