The Stepping Stones to Creativity series provides imaginative ideas for unleashing children's natural curiosity and creativity. Providing practical advice on how to incorporate songs, stories and rhymes into your setting, the book looks at forty of the most popular early years topics and suggests stories and songs that will work well with the topic. Designed to provide early years practitioners with a treasure trove of ideas for putting the Early Learning Goals of Creative Development into practice, this book is sure to have both practitioners and children creating their own stories and rhymes.
This book is a great resource for exploring a wide-range of traditional and modern stories, songs and nursery rhymes. A fantastic tool for developing children's memory and creative listening skills.
"This is a very useful, practical resource for early years staff which covers forty different topics which occur regularly in early years, through story, rhyme and song... This is another practical gem from Practical Pre-School which, although geared to Key Stage one, Early Years Foundation Stage, can be applied to Early Years in Scotland. Extension activities are easy and simple to put into practice. Judith Harries is an author who clearly knows this age group well"
