This book has been carefully structured to help practitioners build upon the theoretical and practical advice given in The Thinking Child. Here the authors, Nicola Call and Sally Featherstone give a wealth of practical suggestions about how to implement brain-based learning techniques in early years settings.
The Thinking Child Resource Book can be used independently or as a companion to The Thinking Child. Clear references in the margins direct practitioners to the appropriate pages of The Thinking Child for descriptions of the theory and research behind the practical suggestions. Case studies give an insight into how brain-based techniques can be used to enrich the learning experience of young children.
The book lists more than a thousand ideas on how to use brain-based learning techniques in the early years including:
– Twenty-one ways to foster positive self-esteem
– Forty ways to get creative
– Twenty-four ways to introduce young children to ICT
– Seventy-five themes for interesting displays
– Thirty-six ways to involve parents
– Twenty-four activities for circle time
– Thirty ways to exploit VAK – visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning
“An extremely practical, accessible guide to putting brain-based research into action in foundation stage settings. Children taught like this will be at a huge advantage in the acquisition of literacy skills… indeed, in all their learning.”
Sue Palmer, UK Literacy Specialist and Author.
