Lots of creativity happening to support tamariki’s individual interests in our Stems homes.Creating resources is one of my favourite things to do, there are just so many great ideas out there. With these stones, children can begin learning numbers in english and te reo Māori. I have added them to my collection of story stones, which encourage children to point and identify, enhance language skills, encourage imaginative play and early story telling.

I have also painted a range of wooden cotton reels that can be added to the loose parts collection. Loose parts, such as lids, tubes, stones and shells, have no specific instructions to follow and encourage children to use their imagination, promoting learning and development in so many fun ways!
