We have had a very busy day with our friends Billy, Matthias, Mia, Chloe, Charlize, Lucas, Lukas, Sienna, Hollie and Dylan.
We welcomed our new friend Sienna who has had a very happy first day at Benowa Hills. She was eager to explore her new play environment and enjoyed singing with her friends at group time. Using the very popular puppets we sang:
– Mr Frog
– Heads, shoulders, knees and toes
– Here is the beehive
We have actually enjoyed a few different group times today with Billy and Dylan initiating story time by finding their favourite books and offering them to their educators. The toddlers are enjoying story time and their attention spans are increasing as we read five short stories before outside to play before lunch!
Miss Des’ree organised a play dough experience and brought out some fun equipment for the children to use with the playdough. Dylan, Chloe, Charlize, Sienna and Billy spent quite some time exploring and creating with the play dough!
Miss Jo organised a painting activity – encouraging the toddlers to work on their fine motor skills by using thin paint brushes. Lukas, Hollie, Matthias, Lucas, Mia, Chloe, Sienna and Billy had fun mixing the blue and yellow paint together. They also did a wonderful job at keeping their paint smocks on and washing their hands once they were finished.
