Throughout the past couple of weeks, we have been observing children’s interest and we have noticed a few recurring interest and ideas shared by the children :
- birthday celebrations;
- dinosaurs, racing cars or pizza;
- drawing and using writing materials
- modeling play-dough; and
- play with different types of construction materials such as bricks, Duplos, and wooden blocks.
To bring together all of these interest we will organize a birthday celebration. Children will collectively plan the party by choosing a theme, baking a cake, making decorations and invitations for the Prep 3.1.
The book we read this week was Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The children engaged with the story in a variety of way, some engaged in role play, others play with the puppets or drew pictures.
Reminder: Please send your child’s baby pictures after the holiday. We need them for our unit of inquiry.
