More About This Title Sandtray Play in Education


This is a manual for training teachers in the Sandtray Play in Education method. It introduces a holistic approach to childhood education that returns the child's natural medium of creative play to the learning environment. Sadly, most approaches to contemporary childhood education are not successful in teaching children the riches of language and numbers and the capacities to think, inquire and create. We are failing our children by not designing educational curricula that is appropriate to the learning styles of children.
