FUN TIMES IN KINDY BLUE!
We have had a calm and happy start to Kindy Blue 2016!
We’ve been busy settling into routines, learning friend’s names and making choices about what we might like to do at Kindy.
As part of our Religious Education unit “I Am Me”, we have drawn and painted pictures and shared something important about ourselves so that others get to know us better and can see we are all part of the Kindy Blue family. We thanked God for making each one of us so special and unique!
Our names are important too- our Mum’s and Dad’s chose them especially for each one of us and God knew who we were even before we were born! We tried tracing over the letters of our name and then applied spots with the dot textas very slowly and carefully around our name!
While we are so young and our hands are so small we need to make our finger and hand muscles strong so that we can write, draw and use tools effectively as we grow up. We use different materials like pegs, play dough and modelling tools to exercise all these muscles!
The Math table is a great space to use different open ended materials to investigate number, making collections, classifying, sorting and sharing ideas with friends!
We met our new Reptile friend FREDA the frill necked lizard at Kindy! Don’t be scared if you see her sunning herself on the verandah- she’s just a puppet! We put Freda outside in the sun to see if her temperature would change as we are learning about the REPTILE family of animals as we investigate how The Sun Changes Everything! Sure enough, Freda and the rocks and branches in her habitat became VERY warm over the course of the day. The sun’s energy had warmed things up, just the thing for COLD BLOODED animals like REPTILES. Wow, we were sooo lucky when Jaxon brought a Bobtail lizard skin to Kindy that his Nanna had found in her garden. We could see close up all the little scales that reptiles have covering their body. Thanks Nanna and Jaxon! It’s really cool!
We have had so much fun learning new things and making up great games with our friends at Kindy!
Stay tuned for more fun times!
