Printed Talking Tubs
A Talking Tub™ is an object which a practitioner fills with a wide variety of objects which all fit a particular theme. Objects can then be taken out one by one encouraging children to touch, feel, and explore a theme.
Observation, documentation, assessment and planning are most effective when they are matched to the needs of the child. In order to achieve this we need to understand children's thinking, through considering all the ways in which they communicate. The Floorbook approach provides tools for practitioners to listen to children, to open up conversations and to document their thinking, in order to create progression and challenge their thinking.
The Talking Tub is a vital part of the Talking and Thinking Floorbooks Approach. The tub will allow you to provoke child-led conversations which in turn will create Possible Lines of Development.
They come flat packed for you to assemble with a black and white question mark motif.
