Morning tea- mango jelly with jam and fruits

Morning group –
We started with our morning routine:
• Good morning song
• Days of the week
• Counting and number recognition
• ABC and letter recognition
First, we practiced our Christmas songs, today we stood up and the children did so well today. We then revised our classroom rules and listened to Miss Sana explaining today’s activity. We also had a little group discussion about what Christmas and things we do during Christmas time, children also participated by sharing their ideas and thoughts. We finished our group time with reading Fynlee’s, Theodore’s and Chloe’s book. Thanks, friends, for sharing your books with us.

Before lunch, children participated in Arakan and when they came back, we all danced with some Christmas songs and practised our Christmas songs once more.

Lunch – pasta with salad.
Inside children were given variety of opportunities to develop their fine motor, social, role play, construction, coordination and cognitive skills through activities such as:
– Road track- (fine motor, social, communication, creative, hand eye- co-ordination)
– Home corner- (dramatic play, memory, social, fine motor, imaginative)
– Cubby house (dramatic play, communication, imagination)
– Sand and water in the trough, adding shovels, buckets, sieves and small bowls. Extending from the children’s interest outside with water play in the sandpit. (social, fine motor, sensory)
– Christmas presents supervised by Miss Sana (sensory, social, fine motor, cognitive)
– Christmas art- painting our own bells to hang up with Miss Sana (concentration, numeracy, literacy, coordination)
– Free expression collaging (creativity, social, fine motor, cognitive, sensory)

Due to the cooler weather, we decided to split the children into two groups. Allowing each group to have 20mins outside time. Outside the children were able to explore:
– Cubby houses (dramatic play, social, communication)
– Sandpit with buckets, shovels, pots, trucks- (construction, imagination, creativity, social)
– Free play outside (decision making, extending upon the child’s own interests)
– Bikes and scooter bikes (co-ordination, gross motor)
– Music (language, dance, memory)
