I have been on a TTB course and they are fantastic. Im in a nursery setting with 4 key groups am and pm so am having to rejig from a book on each topic to a book for each group involving all topics of the children's interest.
Due to the amount of work that goes into the learning journeys we have decided to do an etalking and thinking book which will be on circuit on the whiteboard throughout the day. We haven't tried it all yet but are just about to.
This is the plan
First topic we are deciding to be 'nursery'
Friday - sitting with key groups with nursery jumper in the middle and a variety of nursery items around the circle. Listen and talk about the items and nursery with the children. On big speech bubbles write key words from the children or questions. By the end you should be able to find a strong majority link/topic to plan for the next week.
Monday - numeracy based experiences linked to the interest decided
Tuesday KUW based experiences linked to the interest decided
Wed Creative based experiences linked to the interest decided
Thursday Physical based experiences linked to the interest
Friday literacy based (speaking -listening - mark making ) watch photos from the week before having circle chat
Then it rolls over again.
Well thats the plan
I'll let you know x

plan is to observe and take photo's of things that have really grabbed the child (we individually plan any way)
the plan then is to stick these photos in along with any conversation the child had at the time of photo taking and of what is said as they stick the pictures in
a mind map or talking tub could be used to discover what the child is interested in , what knowledge they hold and what gaps of knowledge they have
staff will then work out next steps for the child using their interests this will be also be written in the book
and so the process continues
we use a sepearte folder to house data we keep on the children.
the books belong to the child and will have daily access to them.
hope that makes sense!!!!!!!
We went on talking thinking floor books training with mind stretchers it was fantatsic
any training with clare warden is amazing and if you get the chance to hear her speak do......she is wonderful and so funny
Dont you wished you worked with someone like him!!
