Day Twenty six
When we place book in our learning environment we need to think about how that book is going to enhance the materials that we put it with.
Think about it this way would you place a book about insects in the dramatic play kitchen where there making pancakes or would you place a pancake cook book?
But we could place a book about insects next to a basket of insects and nature items. So that as children are turning the pages they can create what they see with the materials that have been placed with it. Make since.
Or you could place a book about bees and pollination with a provocation designed for children to explore the pollination process of bees.
Books take us to places that we cannot go.
Find a book that is in your collection that will spark children’s interest. Add materials along with that book to a shelf or table for children to explore.
Day Twenty five
What is a Learning Provocation or an Invitation to Learning?
A learning provocation is a technique used to provoke children to think, wonder, explore and to inspire children to take control of their own learning.
Provocations can be a powerful way for teachers to engage children in their own learning.
How do you organize provocations?
How they are organized and presented to children is important. They need to have room for children to create, explore, and be active participants in their own learning.
What is the quantity of materials needed?
When thinking about the provocation we need to think about the amount of materials placed in a provocation. When there is too much children can become overwhelmed, but if there is too little there isn’t enough for them to create and explore.
Think about like Goldilocks, not too much, not too little but just right.
How often should provocations be changed?
As I have said before, we need to activity listen to children while they are engaged with the provocations. This will help guide you as to when it’s time to change or add to a particular provocation. So to answer the question we need to change them based on children’s interest.
Provocations are simple and displayed beautifully to provoke interest.
Provide an invitation for a child to explore and express themselves. It should be open-ended and provide a means for expression where possible.
