I am a Aistear Tutor and use Aistear as a framework and methodology in my Senior Infant classroom. This is my own 6-page plan for integrating the Owl Babiesbook by Martin Waddell into a child-led play or Aistear framework. It lasts for 1-2 weeks.


  • The 6-page lesson plan has sections on

    • Play topic

    • timeframe

    • resources needed

    • book suggestions

    • socio-dramatic play

    • small world

    • construction

    • sand/water area

    • water

    • play-dough

    • junk art.

  • Role-play vocab cards

  • Butterfly and caterpillar masks for the hibernation role-play area.

I have a list of all the resources you may need. I understand that Aistear mostly works in a big class of children with often only one teacher or adult helper. I also understand they most classes may not have water stations or sinks so have given a few ideas. I have tried to strike a balance between little preparation and huge preparation.

 These are all ideas that can be implemented using a play methodology in any Irish classroom. These are ideas I have either invented or seen teachers on the net or schools use. No idea is trademarked, thankfully! I have just compiled them into one document for ease of use.

 Enjoy and have fun playing!
