What a great morning our Jitterbug and Beetlebug children had making cloud dough.
There is only 2 ingredients to this dough and it is conditioner and cornflour . The children all mixed it together and it smelt amazing!
This sensory experience was a hit with all the children , definitely will look at extending on more sensory experiences for the children to explore with.
Today within the Butterflies Classroom they had set up Australia Day painting activity in the room, where children had an opportunity to learn about Australian flag, the colours on the flag (red, blue and white ) and our wonderful stars. As Australia day is coming closer , this is a great way for the children to start learning about our beautiful country.
Throughout this experience it lead to discussions about different state flags such as: Victoria, Tasmania ans New South Wales.
4.1 – Children develop dispositions for learning such as curiosity, cooperation, confidence, creativity, commitment, enthusiasm, persistence, imagination and reflexivity
4.2 – Children develop a range of skills and processes such as problem solving, inquiry, experimentation, hypothesizing, researching and investigating
4.3 – Children transfer and adapt what they have learnt from one context to another
Today at Kool Kidz Tarneit West we had a “Beach Dress Up Day” , we knew the weather was going to be very warm today so why not make it a beach day!
In Kinder they enjoyed laying in the sand on their beach towels with their friends and the Jitterbugs,Snugglepots and Butterflies classrooms all enjoyed exploring with sand making beautiful sand painting’s and pasting. This experience gave the children an opportunity to make their own representation of what the beach means to them.
