Happy Thursday everyone, we hope your all having a wonderful week, Today Miss Shelby and Miss Thais welcome Dominic, Ivy, Latika, Alanis, Quinn, Luca, Charlotte and Hendrix.

We started our day playing outside then when Miss Shelby arrived we came inside and joined her on the mat for group time, during group time the children learnt a new song for Halloween – 5 little pumpkins. While learning the song the children also learnt how to count to 5 using their fingers. Five Little Pumpkins is s a super fun song that teaches emotions vocabulary. One of the pumpkins is happy. Another is grumpy. Another is sleepy. Another is sad. But in the end, all of them are playing!

Miss Shelby also sang some other counting songs- singing 1, 2, 3, 4,5 once i caught a fish a live, 5 fat sausages and 5 little ducks.

Today Dominic, Charlotte, Quinn, Hendrix, Luca, Ivy and Alanis painted a pumpkin using orange paint and stampers, this activity helps develop the children’s fine motor and hand-eye coordination skills as they used the stamper to stamp up and down on the pumpkin. While painting Charlotte expressed her feelings and ideas telling Miss Shelby ” I’m painting Halloween”.

 

Miss Thais sat down to have a picnic with the children using the home-corner food and equipment, she talked about the different food. She also brought in the wooden climbing equipment and a safety mat for the children to practice their climbing and played a ball game with the children where they practiced their rolling and throwing skills with the ball as well as learning to share and turn-take with each other.
