This morning outside, Breanna, Malia and Caleb were playing in the sandpit together along with their friend Azara from Kindergarten 2. The children were all making a giant cake. It was strawberry flavour. Edie was building with the large, connecting flowers. Edie build a motorbike where she could even sit on. Zeke enjoyed playing on the fort. He was standing on top of the bridge and watching all the children play. Jack. Breanna and Eden were playing on the slide. The children would slide down and then quickly run back up to slide down again. Zeke spoke about having sausages and corn for dinner last time. Leo told Miss Jade that he had tacos.
At group time, we began with the ‘Acknowledgement of County,’ . Then, we did our roll to see who was here today. When we finished with the roll, the children helped Miss Jade count how many children were here.
Irina chose the ‘Days of the Week’ song and we completed the calendar. Leo chose the song to dance to, which was ‘Minions’ and Emilio also chose ‘PJ Mask.’
When the songs concluded Miss Jade went over the rules of the room and also spoke about germs. Miss Jade and Miss Mel reminded the children that they are to cough or sneeze into their elbows. We discussed the reasons why we did this and practiced the action. Miss Jade also spoke about how the children should be washing their hands in the bathroom. The children practiced washing their hands and counting to ten.
At activity time, Miss Jade set out a fine-motor activity that allowed the children to practice their pre-writing skills. The children were to roll out playdough to be flat and then used a pencil to draw patterns on. The children would choose the various patterns from the centre of the table. Leo, Malia, Ceylon, Irina and Edie loved practicing their skills. Breanna, Caleb and Eden were playing together to form a track for their marbles in the marble run activity. Jack also enjoyed building with his friends in marble run. They worked collaboratively to build it as complex as they could and then would place their marble at the top and watch it roll down. Zeke and Emilio were building with the Lego. Zeke was building a flying car while Emilio as building a house.
For table activities, the children enjoyed home corner, Lego, puppets, drawing and shapes.
The children chose a book from book corner to engage in. After that, Miss Jade spoke about ‘The Star of the Day’ and what it was. This was for someone who has made positive choices in kindergarten today. Today, it went to Caleb.
The children then sat in the circle for their ‘Daily Reflection.’ Everyone in the circle took turns to share what their favourite part of the day was.
Please ensure all notes (Sleep, Individual Profile and Computer) are returned ASAP. Also, please bring in your family photos for our ‘Family Tree.’
