Sadly, we did not have music today as Ms Clouston was away. However, we had a great day with lots of fun activities with our teachers!
If today is Monday what was yesterday?
Jiashan - Sunday
Miss McKendry pointed to all the months of the year and when she got to August we all shouted out stop. We found out that we have started a new month today, August. We have 5 birthday girls this month (including Miss McKendry).
Sophie and Olive had a go at being weather reporters. They stood up with the pointer and said...
"Today is Monday, which means tomorrow is Tuesday. Today's date is the 1st of August 2016. It is cloudy, a bit cold and it might rain."
We will have new girls practising to be the weather reporter each day. How exciting! We need to research, by asking out parents what day it is and what date it is, in the morning each day.
Miss McKendry explored the letter i with us today. What it's name is and what sound it can make
What words start with the sound i?
Jiashan - igloo
Isabella - Isabella
Kate - igloo
Ishana - injection
Some pictures did not start with the letter i, and we placed those cards in another section.
Phynix - insects
Myrsina - dinosaur (starts with d)
Chloe - apple (starts with a)
Today we had Chapel in Thompson Hall. Mr Morphew talked about how God loves us. God is rain, crops, food and joy. He talked about GRATITUDE and how it is important to think of others before ourselves and be thankful for everything we have.
Miss McKendry showed us some pictures. We had to say what was happening in each picture and decide if you would do the activity during the daytime or night-time. This was tricky as sometimes an activity would overlap like brushing your teeth! We ended up with more pictures in the daytime hoop. Tomorrow we will continue learning about time, and look at sequencing time.
Miss Jeong practised number activities with us. We did some rocket counting forwards and backwards from 0-12. Then we sat in a circle and Miss Jeong rolled a dice. We had to quickly figure out how many dots were on the dice and say what number it was. Miss Jeong asked us to explain how figured out our answers.
Then some of us stood up with number cards and we had to sequence the numbers in the correct order. This was fun, and the girls on the floor were a big help. Miss Jeong asked us to figure out which number came before and after, by asking us the questions,
If I am number ___, who is my friend that comes before/after me?
Miss Jeong pointed to a number and we had to say it's name, then do actions. We did a different action for every new number. This was a lot of fun! We were quite puffed at the end of it.
