The children enjoyed dancing and singing songs with their educators this morning. During group time, children sang their good morning songs in different languages, and explored letter recognition by looking at the alphabet chart. As today is ‘World Ocean Day’, we read stories about the ocean and had a discussion about how to keep the ocean clean, how having rubbish in the ocean and not looking after the ocean has an adverse effect on the environment, and, which crea tures live in the ocean.
During learning centre time, the children made an ‘Ocean’ artwork, by using blue paint and some transparent red paper, to represent how the ocean is impacted by garbage and how harmful it is for sea creatures and human beings.
Alejandra continued her snowman project with some children. She helped them write their first letter of their names.
In the afternoon, some children did meditation and we talked about why we need rest and the importance of relaxation. We then engaged in gross motor games and practiced turn taking. The games also involve collaboration with each other and balancing body movement.
During free play, the children explored magnets, farm animals, books, making funny faces with potato heads, cooking meals for their friends in the Home Corner. All the children were busy exploring different learning experiences, expressing their interests, sharing toys and resources, and learning how to be involved in social play.
We had a lovely day, and are looking forward to tomorrow!
