The Whole Shabang Book & CD
“The Whole Shabang Volume One” includes a CD of 17 catchy and original songs accompanied by MAKATON signs, musical score and a wealth of practical and creative ideas to enhance learning.
The resources in this unique book have been developed over years of hands-on experience in nurseries and special educational settings by musicians and theatre practitioners Russ Elias and Kim Reuter of Shabang! Theatre Adventures with quirky and delightful illustrations by Kath Stewart.
Using two themes - the SEA and the GARDEN this creative resource features songs to start and end your day, songs to build language and facilitate group sessions and songs to encourage participation and turn taking. Combined with MAKATON signs the songs come alive to enhance any curriculum including a multi-sensory approach towards every individual song and a DIY toolkit packed with ideas to promote three-dimensional learning. It also features a step-by-step guide related to EYFS assessment scales, NC attainment targets and ‘P’ performance scales for special needs.
