Written for early years practitioners who wish to support and develop children's thinking, Threads of Thinking, Third Edition, presents evidence of continuity and progression in young children's patterns of thinking and learning (schemas), and with detailed observations shows that they are able and active learners. The author reviews children's patterns of learning and thinking and demonstrates clearly how children learn in an active, dynamic and creative way, using examples of young children 'in action', illustrating their learning in areas of literacy, mathematics and science. This new edition presents observations of babies and toddlers, discusses how their early schematic development can be supported, and includes examples of children learning through creative experiences in the arts. Focusing attention on children's own learning agendas, this resource thoroughly reviews implications for curriculum, assessment and working with parents. This fully revised third edition includes abundant, detailed descriptions of children learning and discusses those observations in the light of our understanding about how children learn and how that influences early childhood teaching strategies.

All children are born with emotional talent. But if left untended, those talents can wane during the first five years of life. Children are sensitive and social beings from birth, exhibiting an innate enthusiasm for communication that must be satisfied for healthy development. If their feelings, agency, and motivations are met with affection, if they are respected and nurtured, then children will respond creatively and that inherent desire for companionship will flourish. However, with the recent changes in political and educational systems, early years education has seen a decline in focus on the emotional wellbeing of children and the development of their creativity. Those systems need to adapt if educators are to bring out the best in our future generations. By nurturing creativity and emotional wellbeing in the first five years of life, long term social benefits can be wrought. The book focusses on children's readiness for learning. It addresses the natural joy explicit in children's early conversations and engagement with music and their development through play with both adults and other children. This kind of education allows children to develop their bodies and skills, accept and understand their feelings, build relationships, and progress both their imagination and their problem solving skills. In this way, play with others drives development. With contributors from the fields of psychological, educational, and political spheres, this book will be of interest to anyone concerned for the future of our children.
