The Planning for Learning series is a series of topic books written around the Early Years Foundation Stage (2007) designed to make planning easy. It is packed with activities and ideas intended for early years teachers and playgroup leaders. This book takes you through six weeks of activities on the theme of books and reading. Each activity is linked to a specific Early Learning Goal, and the book contains a skills overview so that practitioners can keep track of which areas of learning and development they are promoting. This book also includes a photocopiable page to give to parents with ideas for them to get involved with their children's topic, as well as ideas for bringing the six weeks of learning together.
The weekly themes in this book include: Storybooks; Books for finding things out; Poetry books; Special books; Books from around the world; Favourite books. Bring all the learning together with a book day.
