Monday was cold and a little wet but that did not stop the children from exploring the yard, climbing and of course going on the swing. Some of the children were able to use a hoola hoop in different ways such as rolling it, throwing it as well as putting it around themselves and making it move by shaking their body. We will continue to provide the hoops so the children can have fun and build their skills. Outdoors a few of the children made colourful handprints which are displayed on the wall in the block area so please look for your child’s print and let them know how talented they are.
While making sandwiches the children were able to make choices about what they wanted to put on their white/brown bread or wrap. There was cucumber, tomato, carrot, lettuce, cheese, tuna, chicken and ham. Each child had their own combination which they enjoyed eating. There were many positive comments made such as, “I love my sandwich”, “so glad we made a sandwich” it’s yummy” We would like to say a big THANK YOU to Cathy for all your help when making sandwiches with the children. After eating the sandwiches we spoke about being healthy and how we should eat vegetables and exercise and spend time outside. At the moment Karen is compiling a booklet that looks at different ideas about being healthy. If you have any healthy recipes and other ideas can you please let us know so they could be included in this booklet.
On Thursday the dog walker from “Woof “arrived and of course the children were excited to see her and the five dogs. We watched them run and catch the ball when they were in the park. Several of the children used the hoops again today. There were other children who dug in the dirt and made cakes. There was positive communication and cooperation happening during these experiences. The children were surprised to see that the silkworms were disappearing inside a cocoon. There were only six that we could see. All the others have now spun their cocoon. When will they be a moth???????
