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.

I am an Aistear tutor and work in the Aistear classroom as a support teacher every day.

Enjoy and have fun playing!
