The book is packed with information about brain-based learning, but is easily accessible with great illustrations - it's a book that is full of life and humour. Like ALPS, there are loads of practical ideas and suggestions, backed up by the theory of why brain-based learning works. I wholeheartedly recommend this book for any early years practitioner or parent of a preschool child who wants to know more about how children learn.' This new edition of The Thinking Child is fully updated with reference to the new Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and Every Child Matters. The book considers the most recent research into the brain and learning, and offers practical advice on how to reflect these findings across the whole range of early years provision in schools and other settings This new edition contains guidance on current challenges facing practitioners, such as dealing with stressed and over-scheduled children, the philosophy and benefits of including every child and how to address practical issues that might arise in different settings The authors offer practical advice on implementing statutory requirements, maintaining a balance between child-initiated and adult-led activities and making the most of existing resources

Raising a Thinking Child Workbook

Raising a Thinking Child Workbook

This unique workbook, available in English or Spanish, serves as the ideal ICPS parent involvement component but also stands alone as an essential parent resource for dealing with typical parent-child and child-child difficulties.

An evidence-based parenting workbook based on the highly acclaimed I Can Problem Solve (ICPS) violence prevention program for children. This unique workbook, available in English or Spanish, serves as the ideal ICPS parent involvement component but also stands alone as an essential parent resource for dealing with typical parent-child and child-child difficulties. Workbook pages are filled with dozens of inviting activities that help parents guide and children ages 4-7 to play games and color as they learn develop cognitive skills and social-emotional awareness. Situations include everything from a child's wanting attention while the parent is busy to teasing and fighting over toys to going to bed on time. The workbook also covers many positive situations-helping with household chores, sharing, comforting a hurt friend, and more. By engaging in these activities and using a special kind of problem-solving talk called ICPS dialoguing, parents help children learn how to think, not what to think. With practice, children learn to think about what they do and why they do it, choose solutions based on consequences, negotiate for what they want, cope with frustration, and understand their own and others' feelings.
