This morning outside, Alaska, Cooper P, Cooper T, Nash and Connor were playing called, “Nash Is Lava.” Nash was ‘It’ and had to chase his friends around the forts and catch them.
At group time, we completed our Acknowledgement to Country. Then the children chose the Days of the Week song and completed the daily calendar.
At activity time, Rie and Ben enjoyed painting and decorating Christmas trees. Daniella, Fynn, Bonnie and Archie enjoyed the sensory bowl, which had seeds, sequins and flowers inside of it. Lillian and Abigail had so much fun dressing up their dolls in the magnetic dress up activity. Alaska, Grace, Elke and Nisha were playing with the dolls house. Each child got a doll and they were playing families. Nash, Cooper P and Cooper T enjoyed the cars. They were pretending to make their cars jump from all over the kindergarten room. Eric, Steve, Shion and Aristotelis enjoyed the train set. Their track curved and went around the tables and floor of the room. Connor loved the dinosaur puzzle. He worked independently to complete it.
Miss Haley came to teach us yoga. We began with a warm up and then Miss Haley shared a story of how we were pretending to go to the beach. We listened to her and acted our all the various scenarios.
At group time, Abigail, Bonnie and Rie shared their Show and Tell. The children shared their clues with their friends and everyone had to guess what it was. The clues really got us all thinking! Then, Miss Jade read a story called, “Armour is like anger.” It was about how sometimes we get angry and how we could control and respond to anger. This included: taking deep breaths, stepping back and speaking to others about their feelings.
For the table activities, the children enjoyed the writing table, drawing, space puzzle, number puzzles and connecting flowers.
For group time, we chose our phonics song and went over our alphabet. We then chose a phonics game to engage in. Then, we began to practice our songs for the Christmas party. We enjoyed singing and dancing to them.
Home-readers will be located downstairs in the office for you to personally change on a weekly basis. RSVP list for the Christmas Party is located in the upstairs office.
