With interleaved Student Book pages for easy reference, the Teacher's Edition provides detailed lesson plans, covering a rich range of activities to immerse children in thematic content and language learning. Playful, active learning experiences engage the whole child, addressing the needs of a variety of learning styles, while ensuring recycling of previous language throughout the course. There are strong links to competencies and formative fields, and at level 3, features helping promote school readiness are clearly flagged with supporting information.
The Hats On Top program encourages teachers to incorporate Learning Centers into their classrooms. Each unit suggests four Centers, made up of simple materials which can be kept in small boxes. The materials are first introduced to the whole class, then placed at Learning Centers for children to explore independently in small groups.
The Teacher's Edition includes a unique webcode to access the Teacher Resource Website.
