Welcome to another week in the Babies 1 room.
This morning Mason and Yuna enjoyed the yard to themselves, Yuna played in the cubby house and enjoyed holding the babies around the yard. Mason found the walkers and used them to move faster he speed around the block course and was carful not to crash into anything. When Conor arrived he ran up and down the obstacle course- tumbling on all the blocks. When Holly got to kindy she went over to the instruments to test out the different sounds. Holly loved the xylophone the most. Around 9am Miss Kate took Mason, Holly, and Yuna to their weekly gym session
For activity time the babies enjoyed self-selected activities which included:
- Reading books in our self-care corner, our self-care corner has cushions, books, flash cards, keys and locks and soft toys
- Home corner which invites the babies to explore, pots, pans, sensory bottles, kitchenette, baskets, and eggs with wooden egg holders
- For our craft we explored water paint and acrylic paint
- Self select shelves included cars, trucks, puzzles, ball runners, puppets and stackers
- Ball pit
During activity time Conor explored the water paint with Miss Bronagh. We offered the children two different painting utensils- paint brushes and sponges. Conor enjoyed watching the splotches that the sponge made and mixed together the yellow and red food colouring. When he was finished painting, he played with books and puppets in home corner. Holly spent most of her activity time mixing the orange and yellow acrylic paint she tested one paint brush at a time and loved feeling the paint with her fingers. When Holly’s canvas was completed she went over to the wooden stackers to build a big donut tower. Kira decided to participate in acrylic art too, she used the small paintbrush and enjoyed making smaller marks on her canvas. When Kira completed her painting she practiced her standing skills near the high chairs. Adelin explored all areas of the classroom she started with home corner and played with the tap, pots and pans. Then she walked over to the self select shelf where is decided to pick out all the trucks and cars. When she was finished in that area she went outside to play in the sandpit. Well done Adelin! Amilla was happy throughout activity time and enjoyed the water painting that Miss Bronagh offered she squished the sponge on to the paper and made clear circular marks, as she added more colour to her work she mixed together the yellow and red to give her art work an orange look. After Amilla’s art experience she went over to the home corner to play with the groceries. When Bella woke up from her nap she helped Miss Des’ree find all the missing puzzle pieces. When she finished helping Miss Des’ree pack away the toys she came outside to build a sandcastle. Mason and Yuna spent activity time catching up on some sleep after their gymnastics class.
Over all its been a great day,
Miss Des’ree and Miss Bronagh
