The Thinking Child Resource Book is carefully structured to help practitioners build upon the theoretical and practical advice given in The Thinking Child - Brain Based Learning for the Foundation Stage. In this new book, Nicola Call and Sally Featherstone combine their knowledge and experience to give a wealth of practical suggestions about how to implement brain-based learning techniques in early years settings. The Thinking Child Resource Book can be used independently or as a companion to The Thinking Child. Clear references in The Thinking Child Resource Book direct practitioners to the appropriate pages of The Thinking Child for descriptions of the theory and research behind the practical suggestions Following the same structure as its predecessor for easy cross reference, this book gives advice on a wide range of techniques and activities such as how to engage the multiple intelligences, how to open productive dialogue with young children, how to select and use music, and strategies for increasing children's time on task. It lists more than a thousand ideas on how to use brain-based learning techniques for the foundation stage, including: *Twenty-one ways to foster positive self-esteem; *Forty ways to get creative; *Twenty-four ways to introduce children to ICT; *Seventy-five themes for interesting displays; *Thirty-six ways to involve parents; *Twenty-four activities for circle time; *Thirty ways to exploit VAK - visual, auditory and kinaesthetic learning. Case studies, taken from a wide variety of settings, give an insight into how brain-based techniques can be used to enrich the learning experience of young children, while the four fictitious child characters featured in The Thinking Child are again used to represent some of the best early years practice. The experience of practitioners using The Thinking Child Resource Book will be as exciting as that of the children, as they continue on this brain-based learning adventure together.

Nicola Call started her teaching career in Inner London, rising rapidly to become Deputy Head of three primary schools. When she met Alistair Smith, with whom she co-wrote The alps approach, Nicola was beginning to put theory into practice at her school on the outskirts of London's Heathrow airport. The most memorable result of this work was when 100 per cent of her Year 6 students attained Level 5 in their science SATs, but of equal importance was the incredible academic confidence of the children who experienced these methods. Nicola now lives in California where she combines writing with research into Accelerated Learning work in schools.Review:
An extremely practical, accessible guide to putting brain-based research into action in foundation stage settings. Children taught like this will be at a huge advantage in the acquisition of literacy skills... indeed, in all their learning. (Sue Palmer, Literacy Specialist)
Many of the ideas and suggestions in the book can be used to support approaches and ways of working that are used in a wide variety of different early years settings. (Early Years Update)
"These are by no means tick lists, but thought-provoking ideas that will move practitioners on in terms of fun, creativity and innovation... It is an indispensable resource that no practitioner, or those in training, should be without." (Martine Horvath, Early Years Educator)
