‘Work In Progress’ signs, FREE download! Busy children are often expected to stop what they are enthralled with and return the classroom to a tidy state, whether what they are playing with is completed or not. These ‘Work In Progress’ signs I created for children to put on models or construction that they have not yet completed in order to protect what is being built so that others know not to tidy it away. No more anxiety over “but it’s not finished!” and I convey the message that the ideas and creations of a child are respected and viewed as far more important than the tidiness of the room. The idea is working too well for me to not share it, so here is a link to download copies of the resources I have made, help yourselves. #givechildrenownership #workinprogress #simpleyetsignificant #EYFS #reception #letthembelittle #learningthroughplay #makeitfun #activelearning #theteachertraveller #messylearning #funlearning #earlyyears #teacher #learn #littleones #kindergarten #geraldthetravellinggiraffe #teach #explore #noworksheetsallowed
