Monday 25th May 2020. ♥
Hello from Miss Kate for another action-packed week ahead and lots of learning in the Babies 1 Room. We use the learning outcomes of the EARLY YEARS LEARNING FRAMEWORK, your child’s individual goals and the developmental milestones to guide and extend our practices for your little one to reach their full potentials. Intentional taeching is one of the strategies we use to guide your child’s learning and can be described is an active process and a way of relating to children that embraces and builds on their strengths, interests, ideas and needs. It requires teachers to be purposeful in their decisions and actions.
This morning Miss Kate paid attention to set up a challenging outside area for us to explore with the obstacle course with sensory mats, mega blocks and balancing planks. It was a lovely day once the sun warmed up and the Babies 1 children love being outside! Peyton explored outside with the guidance of one of fabulous new educators, Miss Lilly this morning. The learning the children extend upon whilst being in our outside learning environment is developing their gross motor skills, coordination skills, imagination and creativity play.
Edward was excited to choose the peg puzzles from the shelves today and sat concentrating putting the pieces back into the spots which he tried really well to do this. Parker was intrigued with a big smile as she explored the pipe cleaner sensory box to practice her fine motor, coordination and cognitive skills.
We are so proud of each of our beautiful children’s learning skills everyday they spend with us as they are growing daily. Miss Kate initiated our daily ‘Acknowledgment of Country’ song and some other favourite action songs which all respond so happily too and getting better at trying out some simple hand actions too.
Olive is gaining in strength to sit and grasp rattles that take her attention in the basket inside this morning.
Lastly, the BUBBLES were well received by Peyton and Parker outside this morning as she watched them float by in the breeze. Steiner believed children need free creative play to develop their minds, bodies and spirits.
Thank you for a wonderful start to the week Babies 1 – Miss Kate. ♥
