We currently live in a two dimensional world of tapping and sliding fingers on screens, but babies and young children need to touch, taste, smell, shake and bang three dimensional objects in order to develop thinking and learning skills. The Treasure Basket and Heuristic play approach is all about offering natural and household objects to babies and young children to play with. This simple approach promotes extraordinary capacities of concentration, intellectual curiosity and manipulative mastery. Full of resource ideas and activities, this book offers accessible explanations of how the under 3’s think and learn, step by step guidance for setting up play sessions and descriptions of the best materials to offer. Featuring original interviews between the author and Elinor Goldschmied, who was the pioneer of the Treasure Basket and Heuristic Play, this third edition of Developing Play for the Under 3s has been thoroughly updated to include: A new chapter with case studies to show how Heuristic Play can be offered to the 2-4 year olds. A new chapter exploring the myths and misunderstandings of this approach. Links to the Forest School movement. Research evidence supported by case studies. The characteristics of effective learning and how the Treasure Basket and Heuristic Play promote these. Information about the Froebel Archive project, bringing the story of Elinor Goldschmied’s work alive through film. Based on a wealth of research into how babies learn and the principles of learning, together with the author’s own personal experience of working with the under 3s, this book will be indispensable for anyone involved in the care and development of children in this age group.

Diese Arbeit widmet sich den Fragen, inwieweit sich aus normativen Überlegungen sowie aus empirischen Befunden Argumente für oder gegen die Auswahl des Bildungsinhalts "Magnetismus" in bestimmen Jahrgangsstufen ergeben und durch welche instruktionalen Maßnahmen der Lernerfolg gefördert werden kann. Theoretische Grundlage stellt neben der konstruktivistischen Auffassung des Lernens das "Scientific Discovery as Dual Search" (SDDS)-Modell von Klahr und Dunbar (1988) als Rahmentheorie für (selbst-)entdeckendes Lernen dar. In einer empirischen Studie wurde untersucht, ob sich die Lernergebnisse von Grundschulkindern unter vergleichbaren unterrichtlichen Bedingungen von denen unterscheiden, die sich bei Schülerinnen und Schülern der Sekundarstufe I zeigen. Unter Berücksichtigung nichtkognitiver Schülermerkmale liegt ein spezieller Fokus auf dem Erwerb einer physikalischen Theorie sowie auf einem Modellverständnis als Facette von Wissenschaftsverständnis. Die Ergebnisse zeigen, dass das Konzept bezüglich Lernerfolg und motivationaler Gesichtspunkte erfolgreich umgesetzt werden kann. Grundschüler erreichten unter geeigneten unterrichtlichen Bedingungen das Wissensniveau der Gymnasiasten. Als lernförderlich erwies sich hierbei eine Phase direkter Instruktion zu Beginn der Unterrichtseinheit in Kombination mit einer schülerzentrierten Lernphase mit offenen Arbeitsanweisungen.

Heuristic Play is a tightly described, but freely accessed activity, using a specific range of 'found' or everyday objects, and, in its pure sense, is only really applicable to a specific age range (from 12 months to about two and a half). However, there is now plenty of evidence that heuristic play has continuing value for children throughout the Foundation Stage and well into the primary years. Collections of objects, carefully selected and offered in both adult-led and child-initiated sessions, indoors and outside, can build on the experience of treasure baskets In this informative and helpful book you will find further information on the process of using both treasure baskets and heuristic play with babies and young children. You will also find chapters which explore the benefits of heuristic play with objects for children throughout the early years from six months to seven years. Of course, the materials, the provision and the adult role will develop and change as children mature, so this book also gives guidance on how heuristic play itself should change to meet the needs of children at different stages of development.

"This accomplished book represents an impressive and important extension of previous writing in the field and is sure to expand practitioners' understanding of the fascinating medium that is the treasure basket." Janet Moyles, Professor Emeritus, Anglia Ruskin University, UK Watching a child play with a Treasure Basket can give a powerful insight into the wonder of children's minds; their developmental levels, interests, likes and dislikes; repeated patterns of behaviour; and even glimpses of a child's personality. This book draws extensively upon observations of children's play as well as contemporary and original research in neuroscience and sensory play, to offer fresh insights into the use and benefits of Treasure Baskets and sensory-rich play. The book demonstrates how babies through to primary school children, including those with special educational needs, can derive rich and meaningful hands-on learning from sensory-rich objects and the wider application of sensory play. Key features of the book: Discovering how sensory play presents opportunities for problem solving and meaning making as well as developing creativity and imagination Understanding the benefits and potential of sensory-rich play and its powerful effect upon brain development and memory Learning about the role of the adult in supporting and maximising sensory-rich play Gaining insights from a range of case studies and activities If you have already witnessed deeply absorbing Treasure Basket play in action and marvelled at children's fascination and focus, then this book helps explain something of the 'behind the scenes' processes in action. For those who have not yet encountered this deceptively complex play, this book whets the appetite, giving a taste of what Treasure Baskets and sensory-rich play have to offer. This timely and empowering book is written for practitioners and students working with babies through to primary-aged children.

Kindererziehung gilt als mühselig, kompliziert und teuer. Straffe Stundenpläne, Leistungstests, teure Freizeitaktivitäten und jede Menge Kommerz bringen schon früh eine ungesunde Dosis Stress und Arbeitsethos in das Leben unserer Kinder. Zugleich haben die angestrengten Eltern paradoxerweise das Gefühl, dass sie noch mehr leisten müssten, um die Last der Elternschaft schultern und ihren Kindern etwas bieten zu können. Aber wo sind Kreativität, Spiel und Selbstvertrauen geblieben? In seinem Erziehungsratgeber der anderen Art zeigt Tom Hodgkinson neue Wege zu einer lustvollen Erziehung auf. Unabhängige Kinder und glückliche Eltern, darauf kommt es ihm an. Er fordert uns auf, den Kindern Verantwortung zu übertragen und den Dingen Ihren Lauf zu lassen, anstatt Freizeitspaß teuer einzukaufen. Hodgkinson ignoriert alle modernen Erziehungsratgeber, er lernt stattdessen aus eigenen Fehlern und befragt die großen Denker aus geistvolleren Zeiten, unter ihnen Rousseau, Locke und Lawrence. Und so ist »Leitfaden für faule Eltern« keine Bedienungsanleitung, sondern eine inspirierende Sammlung von Reflexionen über die Frage, wie wir gemeinsam mit unseren Kindern das Leben genießen können.
