Using locally resourced low cost materials to extend young children’s learning, 2008
PDF File Size: 873 KB | Download   
Young children are inventive in using materials they find around them as tools for play and learning. A rubber band, a stick, a strip of cloth, materials frequently discarded by others as waste or junk, provoke children individual thinking, play and learning. For one child a box may become a phone, for another it may be a car. Similarly a lid may be an ice cream, a container to be filled, or a building tool, whilst a bag may be for transporting, covering, filling.
People working with children must be inventive and need to plan and create the environment for children learning. A range of junk and low cost resources can be used to support children as they learn, develop mathematical concepts, explore scientific ideas and extend their understanding of the world around them. People need to encourage and observe the imaginative play.
To support and extend young children learning, people must give opportunities and time for a range of thinking, observing closely, listening carefully, interacting, mediating and questioning sensitively.
