Hello friends and families, welcome to our blog for Wednesday the 17th of March 2021, we hope that everyone has had a wonderful, wet Wednesday just like we all have here in Kindergarten 1 with all our friends Miss Kate, and Miss Shannen, Miss Shannen told us all this morning that this weather is for ducks! We all laughed and started to Quack!
With the heavens opening up unfortunately we were un able to go and explore the fun and exciting yard that Miss Shannen had set up for us all but we all did a sun dance in our room this morning hoping that the sun will come out and we can all go out and play with all our friends, so with the wet weather we started off our day a little bit earlier – we danced to our favorite song Pump It Up where we boogied, stretched and hugged it out with all our friends that were here with us today, we then marked our class role – welcoming all our friends here with a Jingeri followed by days of the week, seasons of the year and our welcoming to country before we transitioned to the bathroom to wash our hands for some yummy morning tea that Miss Kristy had made – this morning we ate a plate of yummy jelly and fresh fruit to fill up all our growing bodies.
When we had all finished eating our morning tea, we packed away our plates, drink bottles and stacked our chairs before finding a spot down on the group time mat with Miss Kate for our morning group time – One of our friends brought in a book from home called all about me and what I love about me! We then did our daily affirmations with Miss Kate looking at ourselves in the mirror as we said them… We said I am Beautiful, blessed, happy, strong, kind, grateful, brave, creative and BIG!
Then we opened up our Cloud café, dinosaur area and Miss Kate showed us all our new affirmation bottles that Miss Kate and Miss Shannen had made for us to go in our calm area – all the bottle colours were picked from all our friends from red for loved, purple for calm, orange for brave and so many more. We also finished off our affirmation area adding in our affirmation cards creating a space for everyone to enjoy and be you!
Miss Kate asked all our friends what activities they wanted out to this morning along with our café, we had friends finishing off their Easter egg cups, drawing what they can see outside, playing and shaking the affirmation bottles, memory game, cars and trucks on the track and using tweezers to pick up the pom poms and place them into the cups with a number written on them – this was a great counting and fine motor activity and before we knew it, it was time to pack away and get ready for dance class with Miss Ken from Funky Feet – today we used musical instruments and shakers to dance and move too, Miss Jen also showed us some new dance moves that we then repeated.
Lunch today was a pasta dish and it was the perfect meal to warm up our bellies on a dark and cold day like today.
During rest time we continued with drawing in our journals and today we drew what the best part of the day was for us with friends drawing then playing with their friends, playing in the café and having breakfast with their Mummy.
As it was still a wet afternoon we stayed indoors and enjoyed our room for the rest of the afternoon with heading out to the sandpit area for a run and stretch.
It has been a very busy day, we have all had a great day together here in Kindergarten 1
Enjoy your evenings, see you tomorrow
Lots of love Miss Kate and Miss Shannen xx
