Many teachers find it difficult to conceptualise how to balance childguided learning experiences
alongside the need for explicit teaching of literacy and numeracy.
.. intentional teachers identify the right mix of this combination by identifying
learning opportunities that are suited to peer collaboration (for example, childguided play or peermediated learning
opportunities); learning opportunities that require explicit adult instruction (for example, guided reading or small
group learning opportunities); or a timely mixture of learning experiences
(Aiono, McLaughlin & Riley, 2019, pp. 62)
