Looking for new ideas for teaching literacy and maths in a playful way? Or perhaps, thinking about introducing child-led play in your classroom? If so, then register for this action-packed Summer Course which has been designed by the Association of Teacher/Education Centres in Ireland (ATECI) in collaboration with the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA).
The course links with the new Primary Language Curriculum for junior infants to second class, which emphasises the importance of playful learning experiences for all children. It provides ideas for developing young children’s oral language, emergent writing and mathematical learning in a playful way.
This course draws on the key ideas in Aistear: the Early Childhood Curriculum Framework (2009) and provides lots of practical ideas for using these in your infant classroom. Take a look at other teachers’ resources for play and find out how they plan for, resource, support and assess learning through child-led play. You will also hear about a variety of resources available on the NCCA’s website
