A friend of mine recommended this blog as one to follow and it’s certainly worth a look! http://chartchums.wordpress.com/
The whole idea is that the children we teach today live in a world very much dominated by symbols and while we use these often with younger children or children with additional needs, why would we not use them just because they allow ALL children to readily access learning? Made sense to me so I bought the book! I’m on a mission now to try out this approach and recruit some fellow teachers to do the same… we’ll post some photos of what we come up with!
