Good afternoon magenta families, And welcome to another week here in the Magenta Room.
We had a great start to our day with some morning activities and some experiences. We also had a morning music group with musical instruments where we practiced our fast and slow tempos and talked about the rhythm of our songs using the xylophone and drum.
For learning centre time we continued on with our season discussion and chatted about the trees that have been blooming and lots of flowers are appearing. We also made some telescopes to search for the flowers that have begun to grow in our garden.
For our learning centre activities we did some painting of a cherry blossom tree where we made our hand print for the trunk and used a recycling bottle to create the look of the petals in the tree.
Nishka: My tree has beautiful pink flowers that the little birds will pick to take home.
Olivia: My pink tree is my favourite.
Isla: This pink tree can hang in the garden for the birds to look at
Elaria: My tree is going to hang in the window so the birds can look at my lovely tree I have made with pink paint.
Alice: This is my cherry blossom tree for spring and the flowers are high in the tree for the animals to smell beautiful.
We have also been separating our little seeds, getting them ready to grow in some more seed pots. So far where have sorted sunflower seeds, daisy seeds, common grass seeds and a few others. We are so excited to begin our lovely garden spring growing experiment.
Some of our other activities today were cubby house where we have been using our imagination as a place to hide from the thunderstorm and windy weather, we had small puzzles and connectable blocks concentrating on our fine motor skills, car mat, home corner where our cafe is baking bread and coffee for all our hard working friends, quiet reading mat for relaxation and large construction blocks outside where we are building our very own city.
What a lovely start to the week and see you all tomorrow,
