The name Thoughtings was inspired by a five-year old who, when asked to explain what thinking is without using the word "think" said, "It's when youre thoughting. These are not poems, or at least, not in the traditional sense of the word.

They are a kind of poem specifically designed around a particular puzzle or problem that might be thought more philosophy than poetry. Here's to the joy of puzzlement! My mind is in my brain Which is in my head Which is under my hat. Peter Worleyworks with The Philosophy Foundation - a team of enthusiasts who promote and train teachers and young people in philosophy worldwide as part of the charity's work. Andrew Dayhas a background in language teaching and a degree in philosophy and social anthropology, the combination of which have sparked his passionate curiosity into the part that language plays in the development of thinking.
If you want to do some thinking aerobics and some brain gymnastics then this is the book for you. I always thought that philosophy and poetry were linked by more than the letter P and this book proves it!
The Philosophy Foundation: Thoughtings
Thoughtings is a delightful, clever, rich resource. It pokes, prods and tickles children's minds by turning life's conundra into light and inviting poemy thingies. Accessible, funny and provocative, this collection brings out, rather than stuffs in, learning and will guide your pupils to the lost goals of education: to question; to think; to enquire. Thoughtings creatively combines the ancient art form of poetry with the ancient Socratic method of question-asking to produce a warm and welcome counterpoint to the strictures of a utilitarian curriculum.
Each Thoughting poem aims to stimulate curiosity about some aspect of young people's lives and -- as an optional learning avenue - the nature of the language we use to understand it. Tags: books , poetry , review , wordsmith. Poems are generally short things and the people who write them have to craft something powerful, despite the need to be fairly succinct. Except their craft is to take some of the biggest themes our world has to offer happiness, love, our place in the universe and condense them into poems suitable for children. This collection of poems is very, very irritating.
In the nicest possible toast-crumby way. In the way that the best questions and lessons end up with your pupils complaining of brain ache, these poems will stimulate young minds into thinking big things by way of puzzles, problems and paradoxes. The poems in the book were inspired by the ideas of primary school children…. It takes skill to tap into that wonder and build on it. Worley and Day have it in spades.
As with all the books we review, we only write about it because we want to tell you about it.
