Good Afternoon our wonderful Magenta families. What a lovely Thursday we have had.
We started the day of with some yoga and took advantage of the cool morning air and practiced our yoga poses. Today the monkey, lion, crocodile and hippo were the most requested poses. We are getting so good at our yoga poses and our muscles are growing big and strong. Yoga is such a wonderful opportunity for physical strength and development but it is also a wonderful opportunity for small discussion groups that foster and build confidence within our spoken and listening language. It’s also great for turn taking as we listen to what our friends have to say and wait for our turn to share our wonderful information.
Some of our other activities today were play dough where we made some of our creatures from our story books. Construction sand pit, mermaid and under the sea ocean drawing, garden sensory rice activity, and large construction corner where we made a zoo filled with animals and flowers that are growing in the warm weather. Our farm house was also back today as the children have been requesting it lately, together the children helped their teaches to collect what we needed and set it up under the shade of our bottle brush tree.
Luca: I can bring the cow and the duckie he lives on the farm
Leo: the horse lives on the farm and the mummy horse can take care of the baby horse.
Thomas: My batman can help take care of the horses and give them some dinner
We also had a spring time parade where we showed off our spring dresses and clothes, and chatted about the colours we were all wearing.
Amelia: I am wearing my Rainbow dress today. The rainbow is the same in the sky rainbow.
Isla: My dress is yellow like the sunshine in the sky, but not on a cloudy day because clouds are white
Olivia: My dress has flowers on it like the flowers in the garden story book
Molly: my dress has a unicorn and he is very friendly
Alice: My dress is blue and I like my little flowers. They are all the places on my dress. It’s beautiful.
During group time we read our stories and sung our group time language songs, We are learning a new song called “ The seasons of the year” and we are getting so clover pronouncing the new words.
We also read the story the big hungry bear who goes looking for delicious strawberries that grow in the sunshine, We had small activities such as puzzles, colour matching and sorting in our group time groups.
What a busy day we have had, and we can’t wait to see you all again tomorrow.
