Young children can have an amazingly long concentration span when involved in self-directed learning, but it can be different when an adult takes the lead! However, the skills and discipline of concentration across different learning situations can be taught. Fully revised, including ten new games, Helping Young Children to Concentrate is designed to assist early-years practitioners as they help children to develop crucial abilities in the areas of concentration and attention. Children will be encouraged to build a more sustained focus, increase their locus of control and reflect upon why it is important to be able to do so. 27 pages, A4.
The activities in the book feature Lola, the well-loved soft-toy leopard, as the central character to help engage children in the games. The kit includes the book and a Lola soft toy measuring 14cm. Items are also available individually by selecting the options above.
Lola is also the central character in our Helping Young Children to Listen resources.
