In the Baby room Suzanne and Geraldine are doing the sense sight. In circle time the girls will sit with the babies with the mirror and point out eyes. The girls will do blinking movements and see if the babies copy. The girls will hide toys in front of the babies and see if they look for them and they will give them colourful toys and objects that are visually stimulating. The younger babies will play with colourful soft toys while the older babies will get to play with colourful wooden puzzles. The babies will also get to do some scribbling on coloured paper.
In the toddler room Bernie and Shell are teaching the children about sharing. In circle time the girls will chat to the children about why we share and use the phrase 'sharing is caringd. They will do activities that emphasise sharing and taking turns like ball play and book time and the girls will put them in pairs with a toy each and encourage each other to share it. The girls will talk to the children about issues that may arise and do problem solving with the children on how they can share. There will be rewards for sharing and lots of praise and encouragement. The children will also do the usual puzzles and colouring.
Upstairs as we creep closer to Halloween the ECCE room and preschool rooms are learning about pumpkins.
Mary Ann, Lisa and Sarah will bring in a pumpkin and ask the children questions about it like its colour, shape textures and chat to the about how they grow. The girls will carve it and ask the children to clear out the mush. Again they will ask the children to describe what their feeling and smell it. The girls will ask the children for ideas of what face to carve into tit Halloween and they will get to colour their own pictures of pumpkins. They will listen to stories on pumpkins and learn the pumpkin action song ‘I am a pumpkin’. Hopefully our pumpkin will stay nice and fresh for Halloween !
Have a great week!
