Who we are
Our line of inquiry:
Exploring our interests through games
This week started with Solea’s show and tell. They all did a good job asking questions about Solea’s toy. And were all very curious, and fascinating.
Circle time: Why is it important for you to play? Children shared their ideas about why they like playing, and their emotions while playing.
Free flow numeracy: Children could choose an activity freely. They had to complete the activity while the music was on, when the music stopped they could change.
Project time: They decided that they wanted to play the “toy store” game again.
