On this hot day, the Aqua explorer started their day off with a variety of self-selected activities. The home corner was busy with children pretending to cook and go to shopping. Meanwhile, some Aqua builders were busy building car park with wooden blocks. Outside the children pretended to be Frozen princess and visited the ‘ice castle’. Other children were busy exploring sink and float at the water trough. They had so much fun splashing water on each other as well!.
The explorers were invited to literacy group time with Donna and Helena. With Donna, the children visited the Letter ‘t’, children like Jack and Isla brought items from home for the letter ‘T’. Jack brought a train, while Isla brought Tiga to showed friends. The children were introduce the image of the letter by putting their fingers together. After that, the children read some of their favourite stories with Donna. With Helena, the children read some of their favourite stories such as ‘Never smile at a Crocodile’ and ‘We’re going on a croc hunt.’ The children enjoyed their story time so much they requested to look at the books themselves. Literacy experiences such as these provided opportunities for children to facilitate their cognitive and language skills.
During learning centre time, the children continued to work hard on their father’s day gifts. They were very excited to do their superman craft for daddy! With Donna, the children were invited to draw pictures about their dads. It was great to see children recorded some exciting and funny experiences with dad on paper!
