Details

The term Talking and Thinking Floorbook (TM) reflects their purpose which is to encourage thinking skills through talking and listening together in a group, so that children are consulted and can then influence the opportunities taking place.They create a child centred approach, which records the evidence of the process of play and the learning that comes from it.Consultation with children is important because;* it creates a closer match between the child and the curriculum it is experiencing.* it builds self esteem and positive attitudes when the learner is involved in the decision making.* it increases intrinsic motivation, that stays with a child throughout life.* children have a right to be treated with respect. As individuals, we can show respect by valuing their thoughts and opinions.The initial thoughts, evidence of the process of play and a summary of ideas are collated in a Talking and Thinking Floorbook(TM), that can reflect the progression over the learning journey.
