Morning tea- fruits salad with yoghurt
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
This morning we listened so well to Miss Thea as we went over our classroom rules. Such as sitting with our legs crossed hands in our laps, listening ears and packing away. We will slowly introduce more classroom rules to encourage independence. The children are now able to pack away and stack their chairs independently after meals!
We then read the stories ‘I love my dad’ and ‘Monkey and me’. Such excellent listening ears!
Before lunch, we did some dancing with Miss Thea. We danced to our favourite songs such as, Sleeping bunnies, Let it go, Shake your sillies out and some Giggle and Hoot. We then sat down to listen to our rainbow song, encouraging colour recognition.
Miss Thea then explained to the children how we are all going to try and make our own beds today!
Lunch – poke bowls with vegetables

Information for parents:
Just a reminder to please write all your child’s name on all their belongings to avoid losing or confusing items. Just a reminder that all children need bed sheets, even if they don’t sleep. This it to encourage bed making and ownership. Thank you
Thanks for a great day!
