Welcome to our wonderful day in the Kindergarten Two room!
Tate and Ryan took the whales, dolphins and dinosaurs for a swim this morning. They first went to the water pump, trying to pump the water all the way through the rocks. When this didn’t work as planned, they filled buckets with water and carried it over to where they wanted it. They then dipped the animals down into the water, swimming them around.
Riley was the monkey bars king today. He built up the large blocks below to give himself a boost to reach the bars, before swinging across the bars with ease and then running back around and doing it all again.
Hendrix was on an ingredient search this morning. He was on hunt for ingredients to use is his “berry soup smoothies”. With a bucket in one hand, he roamed around the yard with a friend from kindy one, “We are cooks!” they told anyone who asked what they were doing.
We had forts and cubbies galore in the classroom this morning. The children worked both collaboratively and individually to make little homes, castles and shops out of the beds. They worked hard to balance the beds in a way that they would be able to stay standing without any support. Emerson made lots of little tunnels between the forts, crawling through them to visit his friends.
Today was the speech students from Griffith’s last day. As a final piece of their assessment, they came into our class and read an interactive story to the group. The book was called “Little Giraffe’s Big Idea” and the children worked to help the giraffe in his quest. The children were very engaged in this experience, putting their hands up to answer questions and volunteering to help out. Thank you, Griffith students! After the speech students had left, Macy decided to recreate the story and activity herself, using the resources so kindly gifted to the class. She moved the pieces around, helping the giraffe fulfil his quest.
