"This book offers both a fantastic insight and vision for developing a creative classroom which encourages active engagement, collaboration, choice and learner-driven feedback.
The authors show that in promoting a creative learning environment you can encourage richer conceptions of learning and the development of a learning community that enables children to make plans, review their experiences which then enhances their predictive and analytical abilities and develop a sense of responsibility for themselves and the choices they make." - Glenys Ingham, Headteacher at Myatt Garden Primary School, London, UK
"With dramatic flair, Trisha Lee and Linda Pound combine their unique knowledge of theatre and education to demonstrate new ways of teaching maths. And guess what? It's all about telling stories and acting out ideas, just the thing children love to do. Page by page, the authors show us how to trust a playful approach and join the children in imagining a life of mathematical thinking." - Vivian Gussin Paley
