Making the EYFS Work for You (0-36 mths)

 

Early Years Foundation Stage (0-36 months) Special OFFER

 £12.50 (FREE postage)  now only £5

Sample pages

Read reviews

These two manuals were produced when the EYFS first came out in 2008. Although the EYFS has been revised the activities and suggestions in these manuals are just as useful as they ever were! But because of the revision (and people's expectations) we have to make the choice about destroying hundreds of copies or making them available at cost. We believe they are full of really good ideas and would far rather see them used ... so we're supplying them at cost.

 

Including postage and packaging a single manual is £5

If you buy both manuals the cost is £9 (our postage comes down slightly). If you want to order both manuals click here.

 

An A-Z of Tricky Behaviours in the Early Years

A-Z of Tricky Behaviours

£5 (FREE postage)

Imaginative ideas for dealing with some of the more common difficult behaviours that you might have to deal with from biting to swearing.

Behaviour Management in the Early Years

Behaviour Management in the EY

£6 (FREE postage)

Read review

What is ‘typical’ behaviour in young children? How do you set about changing problem behaviour? What do we mean when we talk about behaviour management? How do I draw up a Behaviour Policy for the nursery? What is the best way of observing and assessing behaviour?
What sort of interventions should I try, and what happens when those don’t seem to be working? How should we support parents who have a child with challenging behaviour?

You'll find the answers in this easy-to-read guide.

Have fun with traditional songs with movements, numbers and colours.
This resource book by Dr Hannah Mortimer for childminders, early years educators and reception class teachers is truly inclusive in scope. There are plenty of activities here in which children can participate with pleasure. Traditional songs such as “The Grand Old Duke of York” or “Incy Wincy Spider” come with suggestions that will keep fingers and limbs as well as voices busy. Others focus on concepts such as numbers and colours, or help children to identify where sounds come from and to discriminate between them. Great ideas and easy to use.

Reviewed by a childminder - “I am not musical, but this book gives good ideas and variations on well-known tunes, making the task of music sessions much easier. Overall, this is a great book for anyone working with young children and is a useful tool when working with children with SEN.”

Listening to Children in their Early Years

Listening to Children

£6 (FREE postage)

Read reviews

Listening to children involves much more than simply ‘hearing’ what they have to say . . . we know that. But how do we tune in to children? How do we really see things from their point of view?
Here are practical ways to help you do just that - techniques for developing good two-way communication; ideas on how to use cameras to involve children; child conferencing; child passports; the Mosaic approach and many, many more. There are also sections on how to tune in to babies; working with children with disabilities and some examples of all these activities in practice.

Helping Children Hang On To Your Every Word

Helping Children Hang On To Your Every Word

£10 (FREE postage)

Read reviews

Why is it that the children who can least afford to switch off are the ones who don’t pay attention? And that children who most need to ask for help are the ones least likely to do so? If children are opting out in the classroom, switching off or passively waiting for direction, we need to understand the barriers they face and help them engage by making their learning opportunities more meaningful, interactive and rewarding.
This will help you make the classroom experience more accessible to all learners, and highlights the links between behaviour and hidden language processing difficulties.
