If you have been following me a while you’d know that I absolutely love small world play, so I was honoured when I was asked to guest host the Small Worlds theme over at @earlylearning101. It was incredibly difficult to choose just four favourites, but I love the mix of themes, natural elements and different sensory materials in these invitations to play by @reggio_rita, @littlelifelonglearners, @mygirlsmake and @play_at_home_mummy. Check out their amazing accounts for lots more inspiration, and don’t forgot to explore the #el101_smallworlds hashtag too. So much goodness!! 😍😍😍

You can almost smell the sea air in this SMALL WORLD πŸπŸ β˜€οΈ shared by @findthelittlemind to #el101_smallworlds this week πŸ‘πŸΌ One of the best things about SMALL WORLDS are the sensory rich experiences you can create at home or in the classroom πŸ˜€ A child who has never stepped foot on a beach would come away richer for having played here ❀️ #earlylearning101

Sea, sand, shells and ships 🌊 πŸ–πŸšπŸ›³
Today we decided to bring the beach to us with a fun small world sensory bin. Sand, rocks, shells, Crayola bath colour dropz blue water and Toobs ships in a big plastic storage bin made us feel that bit closer to sandy shores 😎

The bin soon turned into complete slush and the most popular use was as a monster truck swamp (see my instastory) but it was worth it to see my son so hands on with messy materials and expressing his imagination so vividly. See my blog (link in bio) for full details.

Why create SMALL WORLDS? πŸ€” So many excellent reasons and @our_kinder shows us how when paired with a text, a inviting small small world can help build early literacy skills allowing young children to retell the story, resequence the events, develop understanding of characters and text types πŸ‘πŸΌ It’s also a fun and engaging way to play πŸ˜€ You can find plenty of inspiration for your next SMALL WORLD here πŸ‘‰πŸΌ #el101_smallworlds πŸŒπŸ¦–πŸŒΈπŸŒŽπŸ§œπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ›πŸŒŽβ„οΈπŸπŸŒπŸ§šπŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ πŸŒŽ #earlylearning101 #pretendplay

Counting, problem solving and number recognition and are just a few of the wonderful learning opportunities that can take place in this simple activity.
