A 2-week plan for Aistear/play using the theme of Winter or Cold Weather.
This is a 6 page, detailed plan for Aistear and the theme of Winter.
It covers the areas of:
- Ideas for language-taught discretely
- Ideas for maths-taught discretely
- Curriculum Integration
- Socio-dramatic play
- Junk Art
- Permanent Literacy and Numeracy Table Ideas
- Now with Winter slideshow-suitable for Infant classroom level
I have also included links to any website for videoes, templates etc and 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 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!
