Our new Friday Freebie is to start us all thinking about Back to School time which is coming up soon!
This is a great activity for Babies and Wobblers and is relevant to the Aistear themes of Identity and Belonging and Well-Being. Identity and Belonging is a very important theme for Back to School time because we are all getting to know one another and thinking about who we are in relation to the others around us!
Even the very little ones are thinking about identity, who they are and who others are. Our ‘Who is that?’ activity involves playing with a (child safe!) hand mirror and talking about what they see. These kind of activities have all sorts of benefits and are good fun for young children. Combining use of language with social interaction and self-awareness is particularly important.
This activity is part of our Back to School Curriculum Plan Pack. All our curriculum plans are available to members of the Early Years Resource Factory as soon as they are released. EYRF also gives you access to hundreds of printalbe records and notices. Our Newsletter Creator is a great way to create a 1- or 2-page customised newsletter to communicate your news every month and also comes free with EYRF membership.
