Our preschoolers were very busy. We planned and carried out lots of activities to cover all areas of learning, for example:
We were talking about ourselves. We were looking at the mirror and were describing the colour of our eyes and hair. Then we drew ourselves on a silhouette: we placed facial parts in the correct places and we used the correct colours to match our eyes and hair.
We were also talking about our oral hygiene. We separated food items into two categories: healthy and unhealthy and we understood that the healthy food make our teeth happy and the unhealthy food make our teeth sad. We looked at a demonstration how to clean our teeth and we also had a go at cleaning pictures of teeth using a toothbrush.
We asked the children if they could draw around a plate. We then asked them to cut the circle (with adult supervision). When they had finished, we asked them what their favourite food was. When they had told us, we asked them to draw or colour it. They all done a fantastic job.
Children we also asked if they could be the hungry caterpillars amd thread through the holes on our leaves. All the children did a fantastic job and only had some help to start the threading.
One of our literacy activities were drumming activities when we used "Boogie Mites" programme to practice rhythm in a spoken word. Preschoolers were drumming to the rhythm, practiced banging 1,2,3 or 4- syllable words and had a go at checking how many beats their name had.
Another activity that we done this term was practising recognising our names, trace over our names and also copy them. We also practised holding our pencils correctly using a tripod grip (between a thumb and two fingers). All the children were trying very hard and did a magnificent job!
