One of a series exploring the EYFS Characteristics of Effective Early Learning. Clearly links the theory underpinning active learning to effective early years practice, through illustrated case studies and examples. Shows how active learning relates to the other two characteristics (playing and exploring and creativity and critical thinking) by making links in every chapter to the other two books in the series. Links how children learn through active engagement, to what they learn across the EYFS prime and specific areas of learning and development.
This book explores how practitioners can support babies' and young children's natural desires to be active in their learning. Illustrated case studies demonstrate ways to put theory into practice and help children to:
become really involved and concentrate
keep on trying even when things are hard
enjoy achieving what they set out to do
