Aistear Observations

Download and print out these observation sheets to make individual observations. The Aistear framework specifies that your curriculum should always be responsive to the children's interests. Use our curriculum plans as a starting point and then be led by the children to plan future curriculum and discussions. Sample observation sheet »
