Today we have spent most of the day inside due to the cold weather but we did venture outside a few times to burn off some energy. This morning before group time we all went outside to play. The babies enjoyed going up and down the slide and taking turns pushing the toy mowers around the yard. We played ball games, talked on the pretend telephone and pointed to all the parts of Mr Frogs face. After this we all sat down as a group and cuddled up together to read stories. Penny and Elle took turns of choosing the story and Miss Hayley read them out to everyone. Next we put on Wiggles radio, the babies enjoyed dancing to the music together. They were encouraged by Miss Hayley to jump, spin, wiggle, shake, clap, wobble knees, stomp feet etc. Everyone had fun trying to copy the Hayley’s different actions.
For Group Time sang action songs with the children:
• Open Shut Them
• If Your Happy and You Know it
• Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes
After this we practiced saying our names and counting to ten, we also pointed to our body parts and faces.
In the afternoon we played with play dough, peg boards, puzzles, interactive toys, baby dolls and musical instruments.
Thanks for a great day babies, See you tomorrow.
From Miss Hayley and Miss Stacey
