Aistear – Play, Literacy and Numeracy (Infants)
Interested in teaching language and maths in a playful way? Or maybe you’re thinking about introducing child-led play into your classroom? If so, then register for this lively summer course, which has been designed by the Association of Teacher/Education Centres in Ireland (ATECI) in collaboration with the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA).
The course links with the new Primary Language Curriculum for junior infants to second class, which emphasises the importance of playful learning experiences for all children. It provide ideas for developing young children’s oral language and emergent writing, as well as mathematical learning, in a playful way. This is a great way to get started in thinking about play and playful teaching and learning.
This course draws on the key ideas in Aistear: the Early Childhood Curriculum Framework (2009) and provides lots of practical ideas for using these in your infant classroom. Take a look at other teachers’ resources for play and find out how they plan for, resource, support and assess learning through child-led play. You will also hear about a variety of resources available on the NCCA’s website.
This course will be facilitated by Catherine Murray.
