Featuring archive footage, behind-the-scenes access and interviews with current darting personalities such as Michael van Gerwen, Gary Anderson and Raymond van Barneveld, the film traces the sport's evolution from humble beginnings through to the glamorous heyday of the 1980s and on into the lucrative professional era. Also included are interviews with legendary players Eric Bristow and Bobby George, alongside contributions from celebrity fans such as snooker great Ronnie O'Sullivan and England cricket captain Alistair Cook.
This board book, along with its companion, Number Work, brings popular Montessori pedagogy into book format for the first time. Montessori students learn to write before they learn to read, so the process is driven by their own words and thoughts before those of others. Letters are taught first as sounds (instead of names) and alphabet tiles encourage children to trace each letter with their finger. This book honours that tradition by emulating the standard classroom material with touchable, traceable letters and providing parents or caregivers the Montessori directed language to encourage understanding. The alphabet is introduced by shape (rather than in standard alphabetical order) and by sound (rather than name), providing young children with an alternative way, a Montessori way , to learn their letters.
Montessori students learn to conceptualise relative quantity before learning the numerals. Numbers are taught first as quantities (instead of names), with number rods that can be manipulated and rearranged. Numeral tiles encourage children to trace each number with their finger. This book honours that tradition by emulating the standard classroom materials with a cumulative red and blue number rod, as well as touchable, traceable numbers and Montessori-directed language to encourage understanding. The numbers from 1-10 are introduced first as quantities to count and then as numerals, providing young children with an alternative way, a Montessori way, to learn their numbers.
Montessori schools focus on hands-on learning with specifically designed materials that allow students to understand the world through methodical and self-directed work. According to Montessori, play is work and the explorations of children are what ultimately lead to learning and understanding. As with all things Montessori, students begin with the concrete and move to the abstract. Montessori: Map Work introduces readers to the seven continents via textured edges to trace with their fingers, modes of transportation between each one for spatial context and illustrated native animals for relevant and meaningful associations. Young children will absorb the age-appropriate geography and gain a better sense of their place in the world.
The scientific pedagogy of Maria Montessori informed a revolution in education that continues today, 100 years later. Montessori schools focus on hands-on learning with specifically designed materials that allow students to understand the world through methodical and self-directed work. According to Montessori, play is work and the explorations of children are what ultimately lead to learning and understanding. As with all things Montessori, students begin with the concrete and move to the abstract. When learning shapes, students first develop an understanding of the spatial object, the comparison between shapes and a relevant application for each shape before learning the names. Inspired by this process and the associated classroom materials (trays of various shapes, grouped by family), Montessori: Shape Work will offer readers die-cut shapes to trace with their fingers, grouped by family for comparison, and illustrated into a familiar object for relevancy. Featured shapes: 3 triangles (equilateral, isosceles, right); 3 rounds (circle, oval, ellipse); 3 parallelograms (square, rectangle, rhombus); 3 polygons (pentagon, hexagon, octagon).
In 1990, Cotton Pershall and Bobby George combined their expertise to bring this book to life, one that was 50 years in the making. In the opinion of many, nobody was more influential or had a greater impact on retrievers--their training, handling, and breeding--than Cotton Pershall. This book was a ?command performance, ? because thousands of dog owners and trainers requested that Pershall's methods be set down for generations to follow. Through the eyes and words of professional Bobby George, that's exactly what happened. The book includes complete techniques and training guidelines for lining, marking, obedience training, play training, handling doubles and triples easily, land and water retrieving, the forced retrieve, techniques to make your dog a more effective waterfowl retriever, and starting puppies through finishing a dog--as well as 50 years of reminiscences about dogs, trainers, waterfowl hunts, and field trials.
Have you learned your colors and shapes? Now it's time to learn patterns!Stripes, polka dots, plaid, chevron, and more are featured in this first-ever patterns concept book that provides readers with the vocabulary to name what they see in the world around them. The ten most prevalent patterns are presented first as a single element (This is a circle ...), then as a pattern (... a lot of circles make polka dots!). Conceived by educators and illustrated in vivid candy-colored hues, this pitch-perfect introduction to patterns will engage the artistic, mathematical, and linguistic parts of every young child's mind.
