Indoors first on Monday morning before the special visitors were to arrive the children were very involved in their chosen experiences such as block building, the hospital and painting. At the drawing table some of the children were looking at themselves in the mirror and then putting texta to paper and starting to draw an image of themselves. When the Grandparents and special friend’s arrived they joined their grandchild who showed them what they like to do and of course photos were taken. There was so much food provided so thank you all very much. The children certainly did enjoy eating even though they had all had fruit earlier in the morning. We did have the opportunity to go outdoors for a short time to run, climb, jump and of course swing. Once back inside we all sat on the mat and thanked our Grandparents and Special friends for coming to visit us at Kindergarten and sang several songs for them. What a lovely morning everyone had.
On Tuesday we were outdoors for most of the session as the children were enjoying the many experiences they were involved with. Children were watering the garden and watching the butterflies, while other children were playing a running and chasing game with their friends. Many of the children participated in a game of Duck duck Goose. Once we worked together to pack away the equipment we moved indoors where we discussed what Candy and Jasmine had got up to during their previous three visits home to their friends. What adventures they have had. Talk about lucky.
On Friday Karen was with us and the children showed her how they are able to organise themselves when playing Duck duck Goose. During this experience the children are developing skills such as communication, listening, negotiation, assisting others, problem solving, recalling rules and cooperation. The children are building their fun and enjoyment of playing games. This will continue to be fostered. How are you all going with taking photos of your home and car??????????Please email to Kindergarten A.S.A.P.
Have a great Melbourne Cup Long weekend everyone, See you Friday 8/11/2013
