Morning tea- pancakes 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 Fernanda and thanked her for stepping into our room today and sang the ‘happy birthday’ song to Elijah and made him the most beautiful wishes. We also thanked Elijah for bringing gifts for his friends. During group time Miss Sana focused on encouraging children to put their hand up before sharing their thoughts. We then revised our classroom rules as we had an indoor day and children showed an effective awareness by mentioning each rule. The group time was finished by reading a book called ‘the lamb who came for dinner’.

Before lunch, we danced to some Halloween songs and read ‘the little mermaid’ book from Fynlee. Thanks, Fynlee for sharing your book with us.
