Wow Factor

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by jo-bo, Mar 29, 2011.

  1. Hi all,

    I'm about to apply for a new job as FS teacher after being in KS1 for a while. As part of the interview process Im to do a small adult led activity with 8 children for 15-20mins. Really want to get the wow factor going with the children so as to inspire them to do something after Ive done some group teaching.........Any ideas? Am I on the right lines?

    I was looking for a book as a starting point then take it form there?


  2. 15 to 20 minutes isnt long.Maybe an interesting/intriguing object, parcel or letter to get them talking/ speculating would be more manageable.
  3. If you want to go with the egg idea, you could also read the book <u>An Extraordinary Egg</u> by Leo Lionni. It is about a frog who finds an egg and thinks it is a chicken egg, even after an alligator hatches from it they continue calling the alligator a chicken.
