The Talking and Thinking Floorbooks® Approach (developed by Claire Warden) is a child-led learning method which promotes higher order thinking and can help raise attainment in settings. Floorbooks® are used by a wide variety of settings throughout the UK, Australia, US, and internationally. The Talking and Thinking Floorbooks Approach has a number of different elements: A Talking Tub™ - use provocations to discover child interests. A 2D or 3D Mind map - discuss what we already know about a child interest. A Floorbook - document the learning and then plan further learning.
Tash Treveton is the co-founder of Inspired EC and is licensed by Claire Warden as a trainer in the Talking and Thinking Floorbooks Approach. Tash loves the simplicity and the child-centred nature of the approach and has delivered this training to hundreds of educators in recent years.
