Happy Monday! Welcome back to another week in the Emerald room 😊 Where has the time gone? It’s almost October … It’s basically Christmas!
We sat down this morning to engage the children in meaningful conversations about their weekend, the weather and to read some of our favourite books together. Robyn’s new book about poo is quickly becoming a favourite … and the children enjoyed singing ‘Brown Bear’ with Sandra and using the visual aids for each animal!
Time to get ready for the week with our daily yoga session! The children were excited to get started and couldn’t wait to help Bernice set up the mats. They showed off their gross motor skills by practicing animal poses and stretching!
Today we ventured to the abandoned Aqua yard on a bug hunt, armed with our magnifying glasses, tweezers and other bug catching equipment! The children searched high and low looking for creepy crawlies! We captured incy wincy himself and popped him into our observation tank to have a good look at him! Did you know that spiders have 8 legs and 8 eyes!? The children enjoyed their time searching for bugs and learning more about their habitats.
We used our fine motor skills to decorate a wobbly jellyfish with tissue paper and googly eyes!
The children have had a lovely day exploring the sensory tray with plants and bugs, free painting with their hands, building train tracks and digging in the sand pit! 😊
