Morning tea- Banana with scrambled eggs and Turkish bread
Morning group –
We started with our morning routine:
• Good morning song
• Days of the week
• Counting and number recognition
• Colour recognition/ rainbow song
• Going over our classroom rules
Miss Thea read the story ‘My scaredy- cat dog’ before we transitioned to play time. As a transition today the children helped to place their chairs back at the table.
Before lunch we had so much fun dancing with Miss Thea and Miss Sana. We got all our crazies out! We danced to ‘Shake our sillies out, ‘sleepy little bunnies’, ‘Party freeze’ and ‘Mr Clickity cane’. After the children then sat down and listened to the rainbow song, this was great for identifying and recognition colours. We then looked around the classroom to match colours together.
Lunch – fish nuggets, fried rice and vegetables
Inside, the children are given variety of opportunities to develop their fine motor, social, role play, construction, coordination and cognitive skills through activities.
