Product reviews for Teaching on a Shoestring

Sharon Phillips, Teacher, Deri View Primary School
Teaching on a Shoestring offers an excellent guide to the use of everyday objects as stimuli, packaged into a helpful A-Z breakdown that will provide teachers in all settings with fresh ideas.

I like how the book explains the usefulness of objects and the theories surrounding their importance, and the way it maps all the activities against the 4 C's - communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity. The website links are also very helpful, as are the interesting facts, various activities and the -˜Find out more' sections.

Ever mindful of changes in the curriculum, teachers will find the book especially helpful as they work to develop cross-curricular topics using everyday objects that make the learning much more meaningful for the children. As a student teacher mentor, I will endorse Teaching on a Shoestring as a fantastic resource to all the students I work with.
