Today in the Toddler’s room, there was so much fun occurring with many bright smiles. The weather outside was not too hot, so it was very exciting to be in the yard for a long while this morning. We had also met two new friends who are joining us in our room today. We had Mia and Chloe. We enjoy meeting and having new friends to join our room.
During group time, we thought it would be a great idea to indoor and outdoor play. Our friends had the option to either stay inside or go outside with Mr Lachie. Inside the room with Miss Jade, some of our friends did some monkey painting. Chinese New Year is coming up soon and it will become the year of the monkey. To celebrate other traditions and cultures, we thought it would be a great idea to base a few activities revolving around the upcoming celebration. Our friends Amber, Asha, Arden and Chloe loved this activity especially. Everyone’s paintings were so wonderful.
Outside with Mr Lachie, the children were having a lovely time. Matthias and Billy were having a blast with the toy trucks. The boys were putting things rolling them and pushing them all around the yard. Mia enjoyed playing on the slide. She was climbing all over it and watching her friends play from the top. Lucas and Dylan were playing together and having so much fun. Lucas was pushing Dylan in the stroller and it was very obvious that they enjoyed each other’s company.
During group time, we all came and sat on the mat with Mr Lachie. He was singing some songs with the children. Together, they sang, ‘Galoomp,’ ‘If You’re Happy and You Know it,’ ‘Twinkle Twinkle’ and ‘Slippery Fish.’ The children were watching and singing along intensively. Miss Des’ree took over group time and read a book to the children.
The children had a very engaging and exciting day in the Toddler’s room. Everyone was playing very well together with the free choice of activities. It has been a great week and hope everyone has a restful weekend.
