This week the children have really enjoyed helping getting ready for lunch time, each child had their own little job to do, to encourage them to follow simple instructions. Some of the children passed the place mats out, they looked at the pictures of the children and gave them to the correct child and said their names. Others passed out the cups, bowls and spoons, whilst passing out the bowls we all counted together and got the children to repeat after us. Helping is a very important skill for the children to learn as it helps to encourage independence and self-confidence. They are also learning about using objects correctly.
Encouraging the children to count along with us helps them to begin to recognise numbers and categorise objects together.
Some of next weeks activities include
- Counting using blocks and singing songs
- Matching games like putting the animal cards together
Special Events: The photographers are at the nursery on Tuesday, please bring in clothes that you would like your child to be photographed in. If your child does not attend this day you are welcome to bring them in to have their photo taken but you must be able to stay with them while you wait.
The Toddle Waddle will be taking place on Friday afternoon and we will all be walking to the park, the theme this year is animals, please come dressed as your favourite animal if you would like.
