Looking for Learning: Provocations is a full-colour, practical guide to inspire child-led learning that's linked to current policy and the EYFS framework.
As each child progresses through their learning journey, Early Years practitioners are expected to identify and understand what learning is taking place in every activity that a child is involved in.
Laura England, creator of Little Miss Early Years, uses her wealth of experience as an Early Years teacher to explore the learning that takes place when a child's play has been inspired by a provocation, including mirrors to investigate symmetry, cardboard boxes to understand shapes, and sticks and pebbles to construct their own designs. Provocations invite learning, interest and creativity as they allow children to explore, think and use their imaginations.
This dip-in-and-out book is linked to the Characteristics of Effective Learning and presents case studies, real-life images and practical pointers to explore their use. With tips for setting up the environment to the adult's role in this child-led play, Looking for Learning: Provocations is ideal for all Early Years practitioners searching for accessible ideas for using provocations in their settings. Looking for Learning books are the number one tool for identifying learning opportunities in child-led play.
All four books are packed full of tried-and-tested ideas for indoor and outdoor activities, helpful hints and tips and full-colour photographs.
Written by Laura England, known as Little Miss Early Years, these are a must-have for any nursery or pre-school.
