3 Year Old Kangaroo Group Blog 30/5/2014
This week many of the children have been involved with drawing. The rulers are being used by some of the children so we have been talking about numbers and how long things can be. Other children have been interested in looking at pictures of flowers and then drawing them. Rather industrious at the moment.
Our discussion about healthy eating continued this week and what is sometimes food and what is everyday food. The children also participated in an experience using felt food to decide what is best to eat. Great talking with their peers and problem solving. Of course these discussions will continue further.
The rabbits have been very popular of course as they are growing bigger and bigger and we have started to hold them. We have had them out on the mat while we sit in a circle and let them jump about. It’s been great when they came close, the children reached out to pat them.
There have been many discussions about caring for animals and caring for our friends. Some of the children were able to inform us that being a friend means to help, give them cuddles and to play with them. We continued this further by saying it’s also about how we talk to our friends and what we say........This can be revisited on a continual basis.
