This title features over 70 highly practical activities looking at the themes of shape and colour for early years practitioners to use with little or no preparation. Containing over 70 tried-and-tested activities, "Activities for Individual Learning through Shape and Colour" is a practical resource which takes a cross-curricular thematic approach and uses the themes of shape and colour to explore the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). This thematic approach saves preparation and teaching time for practitioners and provides children with more effective and engaging activities. It also familiarises children with the more sophisticated cross-curricular projects they will encounter in the primary school. Activities are clustered around particular shapes and colours and each set of activities is clearly linked to the EYFS goals. "Activities for Individual Learning through Shape and Colour" is a highly practical invaluable resource book for all early years practitioners.
