Publisher Description

In this edition, Kathy Walker demonstrates the key principles of the 'Walker Learning Approach' that she has developed over 15 years of observation, participation and presentation in schools and child care centres across Australia. Play Matters continues to provide practical guidance and innovative strategies for teachers working with young children from pre-school to grade 2, through a unique balance of explicit instruction in literacy and numeracy skills and personalised, explorative learning. The book promotes the active engagement of all young children, with an enhanced focus on children from diverse backgrounds as well as children with specific needs.

All is quiet and calm on Noah's ark... until Captain Chatter's potty disappears! What will he do? Surely he can't sit on the LOO? The colourful cast of Elephant Pants return in this second ark adventure from Smriti Prasadam-Halls and David Wojtowycz. Join a whole host of animals as they show Captain Chatter round their amazing bathrooms, helping him realise that going from potty to toilet isn't so scary after all. Praise for Elephant Pants : 'A wonderful book to share and to read out loud; not once, but many times.' The Bookbag
