The finer points:
WELCOME TO HAPPY TALK!
Happy Talk is a door into the playground of language, just right for 3-5 year olds.
Based on the magic of Adventure Island, the Happy Talk explores the joy of early language, echoing the aspects of Letters and Sounds in its treasure trove of 120 'Things To Find The Joy In' that combine both co-play and Time Together on the carpet.
This rich resource of play-full ideas is further complimented by eight stories written by Greg that are immersed in the joy of early language - perfect for sharing with families as PDFs or as Listen-alongs to Greg reading them. Your download also includes a link to the Happy Talk Discord online community, where you can share ideas, ask questions and take the magic even further into the future, and there's also a link to a mini welcome video - happy Happy Talk!!
Welcome to the exciting world of BABBLEJAB! - a brilliant way to explore the playground of language, stimulate chat, develop inference and critical thinking as well as show children the hidden poetry of words.
Children can really benefit from regular open-ended opportunities for Time Together in which they can question, share thinking, discuss and imagine - it's all part of what I call 'the cross pollination of childhood', children teaching one another and being in solidarity together - and BABBLEJAB! has it in bucketloads.
Super simple, easy to immerse in, yet with huge potential right across school from Reception to Year 6, Babblejab! is an adventure into language and imagination.
The download includes a link to a 45 minute BABBLEJAB! tutorial and a double slide pack of 198 slides to get you started. There is also a link to the BABBLEJAB! Discord chat group where you can explore the concept within a growing community of BABBLJABBERS!
It's time for the simplicity of chat, the joy of language and the magic of BABBLEJAB!
To the get the very best out of BABBLEJAB! your setting should have an interactive wipeboard.
THE DOWNLOAD PACK
Welcome to Scribble Club, an immersion in the joy of scribbling and its role within co-play!
Scribble Club is aimed at 2,3 and 4 year olds and is an exploration of scribbling, a way of delighting in its process. In some ways it is a forerunner to the Drawing Club concept although it is entirely based within the hum and buzz of co-play. Scribble Club explores how to add an extra layer of joy to the day through scribbling's powerful link to invention, magic and story.
The concept is super simple and the pack will give you the confidence for you and your team to step into the world of scribbling in co-play
The download contains a link to a Google Drive containing:
Embedded in the pedagogy of co-play found in both of Greg's books 'Can I Go And Play Now?' and 'School and the Magic of Children' comes the Co-Play Planning Pack. Within this download you'll discover the documents that will support you and your team as you head onwards into your adventure into play. The whole pack is based around the principle that when we create a 'playkultur', we plan for what we as adults are going to do and not necessarily what the children are going to do, because when children play we don't know exactly what will unfold - that's the beauty of play and also arguably it's potential Achilles Heel since the Adult World looks for immediate understanding and evidence.
The Co-Play Planning Pack is designed to give you confidence in play, enabling you to work at the cusp of the children's confidence and yours, as well as enabling you to show understanding and evidence to the Adult World.
The Co-Play Planning Pack has been pieced together to put the magic of children and the art of co-play at the very heart of your day. Co-play is the key to adventuring with children into play, where you are as much as part of it as they are and the environment around you...
This download features a PDF of the Co-Play Planning Pack and a separate Word document that has the link to the Magic Mirror video tutorial. It also includes the Dinky Book of Early Years giving you plenty to think about when it comes to continuous provision! Please remember that in purchasing, you are agreeing to a licence to use the downloads for your school or setting only :)
Let the adventures begin, and begin with confidence... Greg
