Lost Words: A Teacher’s Toolkit
Each Lost Word has a thematic plan and one or more lesson plan ideas, which have been linked to the Welsh Foundation Phase curriculum (WG,2015)
|All the ideas contained in this toolkit are the works of the Year 2 USW Early Years Education students 2018--19. The toolkit has been formatted in a way that offers some structure to the layout in terms of the chosen ‘Lost Words’. Ten of the Lost Words have been selected to use in this resource, some of which were chosen by the children that the students were teaching during their placements in Early Years settings in South Wales.
Each Lost Word has a thematic plan and one or more lesson plan ideas, which have been linked to the Welsh Foundation Phase curriculum (WG,2015) . However, some students used different approaches to illustrate and explain their ideas and pedagogies. Therefore in order to maintain different individual approaches, diversity in the content has been retained, which I hope reflects the individuality of the students’ approach, because I believe that it is what makes each practitioner a ‘master at their craft’.
