Happy Friday Babies Three families…

This morning the children enjoyed playing small group games with songs with Miss Leesa. The children danced and imitated the actions as we sang Dingle Dangle Scarecrow, Everybody Clap, Ring-a-Rosey and I’m a Little Teapot. The children also enjoyed a game of sleeping bunnies, lions and horses as we hopped, roared and and galloped about the playground with Miss Leesa. The children then helped pack away as we sang our ‘everybody tidy-up’ song and pretended to ‘shuffle like penguins’ to transition to the bathroom to wash our hands for morning tea.Today the children enjoyed Mango Tango Coconut Granola Cups and fresh fruit.

After morning tea the children made their way to the green mat for Book Time. Miss Leesa showed all the children our new book shelves on the wall. The children were excited to choose their favourite story book for Book Time. The children chose ‘Wombat went-a-walking’ to share during meal time. After Book Time the children gathered on the mat for group time. Today we shared felt stories and songs as we practiced our counting skills and identifying colours. The children sang along to 5 Little Racing Cars, 10 Red Apples Swinging on a Tree and 5 Little Dinosaurs with Miss Leesa. The children pointed to the felts on the board as they practiced counting 1-5. The children also gathered with Miss Leesa and Miss Shafagh on the mat as we all worked together to identify the different farm animal sounds as we listened to the Animal Bingo CD. The children then pointed to the animals on the Bingo picture cards as they recognised the sounds.

Spontaneous play today the children chose stacking and sorting the shape cups, baby doll play with the wrap blankets, grocery shopping with the baskets in home corner – buying fruits and vegetables, drawing on the chalkboards and whiteboards and playing with the recycled sensory bottles.

Hope you all have a wonderful long weekend…

Love Miss Leesa and Miss Shafagh
