This audio presentation will enable you to set up your own enabling environment gap task.
As stated in the video, to complete this gap task you will need the following:
- Gap Task 1 Checklist
- Completed ECERS-R Framework
- Enabling Environments Audit Table
- An outside area that you believe could be made language rich
For this task you will also need to link to the National Literacy Trust HELLO toolkit. Although this has to be bought, we would encourage that expenditure as we have found the toolkit an invaluable asset, which is updated regularly, thereby making it a long term investment. One way forward would be to join with other settings to carry out the project and in that way spread the cost.
