This month we have enjoyed looking at family portraits and talking about who belongs to our family.
Most children in our room are close to, if not already talking, so learning family names are a great encourager for children to develop there identity while extending their vocabulary.
This month we are following off children’s interest in animals. Many of our children love to visit the horses or chickens of a morning and we are continuing this theme.
We have been sitting on the verandah for afternoon tea to watch the horses walk by and this has attracted much excitement and enjoyment from the children.
We plan to further develop children’s senses through artwork as we gather natural materials and create a grassy outdoor collage for our toy animals to walk on.
