Topic Planning - before launching into a topic we like to sit around our floor book and find out what the kids know about the topic and other ideas they have and things they might like to do in class. We are still at the early stages of tis as they are only 3 years, but its amazing how much we can take from the kids. On the other page we document what we have done, the kids stick in the pictures and we talk about what they did, I scribe for them.
