Morning tea- bean sauce with Turkish bread
Morning group –
We started with our morning routine:
• Good morning song
• Days of the week
• Counting and number recognition
• ABC and letter recognition
We then said good morning to Miss Fernanda who stepped into our room today and created such a warm friendly environment for children. We then revised our classroom rules as we planned to stay inside today. Children then talked about who they dressed up as today and the reason for it which caused us to have a group discussion about Halloween and today’s activity which was demonstrated by Miss Sana. Our group time was finished by reading ‘Rosie’s hat’ and ‘Belinda’.
Before lunch, children danced to some Halloween songs and sat with Miss Hayley for a yoga session where children stretched their muscles and relaxed. We then enjoyed listening to ‘king pig’ book read by Miss Roya.
