Morning tea- cakes with fruits

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 Shannon and thanked her for stepping into our room today. Today, Miss Sana showed children of some Christmas item and children did such a wonderful job at helping Miss Sana identifying them. We continued by revising our classroom rules and singing our Christmas songs which children are becoming so good with it.

Before lunch, children sat with Miss Shannon where the enjoyed watching a short of Rudolf’s life and how he became the most famous reindeer.

Lunch – sausage rolls with vegetables
Inside children were given variety of opportunities to develop their fine motor, social, role play, construction, coordination and cognitive skills through activities such as:
– Train track- (fine motor, social, communication, creative, hand eye- co-ordination)
