Cooperative Learning for Early Primary
Kindergarten, Prep/Pre, Year 1 & Year 2 – Australian Edition
Can little ones really do cooperative learning? You bet! Take it from Melissa, a Kagan Trainer, who has taught Pre, kindergarten, first and second grades for more than a decade. By implementing KaganStructures in her classroom, she witnessed the miracle of active engagement. Students matured from “it’s all about me” to taking turns, sharing, listening, helping each other and cooperating. Now you too can witness the miracle of active engagement with your own students. Melissa provides you with everything from getting started to succeeding with her six favourite structures for youngsters: Find Someone Who, Formations, Mix-Freeze-Group, Numbered Heads Together, Primary Interview and Turn Toss. For each structure, you receive simple instructions, a reproducible poster page to lead students through the structure, hints and tips specific to the early primary grades, and activities galore. Your students will become more cooperative, caring, and engaged as you use these six simple, full-engagement structures.
