In Teaching on a Shoestring: An A to Z of everyday objects to enthuse and engage children and extend learning in the early years, Russell Grigg and Helen Lewis explore the educational value of familiar objects and suggest practical activities to help develop young learners' cross-curricular skills. We take many everyday objects for granted. But in a time of ever-tightening school budgets these objects can be invaluable in affording low-cost, high-impact opportunities for learning. With these value-for-money principles in mind, Russell and Helen have packed this practical A to Z handbook to the brim with fun facts, inspiring ideas and exciting activities to help teachers make the best use of familiar objects as launch pads for effective learning. Underpinned by solid theory, Teaching on a Shoestring investigates the learning potential of twenty-six inexpensive, readily available resources from apples to ice cubes to zebra-patterned fabric and shows how they can be exploited to develop in young learners the four skills widely regarded as essential in the twenty-first century: communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity. The book is organised into two parts: covering theory, then practice. In Part 1 the authors examine the nature of an object-rich learning environment and discuss the benefits of enquiry-based learning, in which the emphasis is upon promoting collaboration, dialogue and higher-order thinking in real-world contexts. In Part 2 the learning opportunities around the twenty-six objects are laid out in detail to illustrate how they can be put into practice. While the book focuses on object-based pedagogy employed with the under-sevens age category, many of the principles can also be applied with older children. There is a common format for the enquiry into each object, arranged into the following sections: In a nutshell key background information about the object in its broader context; Did you know? interesting facts about the object; Ready key vocabulary, resources and health and safety factors to consider; Steady learning goals and intentions; Go activities which show how teachers can develop the four skills of communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity around the object; Other ideas follow-up cross-curricular ideas; and Find out more websites and other references for further information. Suitable for early years educators and anyone who works with young children.

Have you ever wished you had a wise old mentor who could tell you where to go next in your career or your life? An “Obi-Wan Kenobi”-type of figure who could not only offer specific advice on handling day-to-day decisions, but could guide you to the people and places that would make a difference in your life and career? In Treasure Hunt, written by a successful Silicon Valley entrepreneur and investor, we can learn to tune into messages that are coming to us all the time from the hidden worlds. These messages, which take the form of synchronicity, hunches, gut feelings, visions, feelings of déjà vu, bodily sensations, and even in our dreams while we are awake or asleep, are like clues in our own personal Treasure Hunt. By learning to the use the Clue Lifecycle, these clues can provide concrete guidance in our personal lives, our jobs, our career decisions and our investments. Where do these “clues” come from? Whether they are from our “inner mentor”, from our “future selves”, or from our spiritual guides, they can help us to uncover our hidden “Treasure Map”, which shows us the work we were meant to do in this life and the path to get there. Turn your career into a Treasure Hunt and find true meaningful success in the business and spiritual worlds.

For millions of readers, New York Times bestselling author Randy Wayne White “raises the bar of the action thriller.” (The Miami Herald) Two decades ago, under the pen name Randy Striker, he was already delivering high-octane adventure with ex-Navy SEAL Dusky MacMorgan—who finds himself sailing in uncharted waters of danger and deception. . . . Gifford Remus is well known as an eccentric scavenger in Key West, combing the ocean, beaches, and byways for anything of interest. But the gold chain he shows to Dusky MacMorgan is no ordinary trinket—it’s the key to finding a long-lost treasure at the bottom of the sea. Before MacMorgan can find out where that is, Remus vanishes off his boat, the apparent victim of a shark attack. But MacMorgan suspects the true killer walked on two legs. Now, surrounded by predators in and out of the water who are armed with both brute strength and breathtaking beauty, he’s going hunting for the treasure—and for vengeance…
