ORCA ROOM UPDATES !
The four am class had really shown an interest in animals as well as aquatic life so the natural direction of the classroom has been geared towards ocean related interests and sea life, as well as pets, wild and farm animals alike.
There has been a consistent interest in building and in cars 🚗.
The four pm class has really enjoyed the idea of baking , travelling and talking about animals and even some interest in the constellations and stars. After presenting the 3 little pigs felt story the children have been building their own Homes out of foam blocks and reinacting the scenes. This coming month we should expect a more in depth look into this classic fairy tale and others as well as a look into space , planets and the stars .
Both fours classes in the orca room are exploring the letter of the week on Friday, which entails a classroom filled with many different types of materials based around things that begin with the days letter, some exposure to the phonics of the letter in different words and incorporating that letter into the majority of the days activities. On some days we will also be baking.
Our threes classes are starting to settle more into a routine which will carry out through the year. They are enjoying the basics sensory activities as play dough and blocks as well as the car mat and dress up dramatic play which has now transitioned into a pet shop. Each threes class is demonstrating diversity of interests and personalities which makes the classroom dynamic that much more interesting . We're hoping to learn more songs. Get into more felt stories and get more detailed in our classroom endeavours.
