Bringing Books to Life

🐅☕️ The Tiger Who Came To Tea ☕️🐅Miss Chloe writes – “Story telling during the young stages of a child’s life is very important. It exposes young children to sounds, language and early literacy skills. As a child listens to your voice when you are expressing a story it can spark a child’s imagination and curiosity. Today we extended on a story book by implementing an environment that related to the story and pictures inside the book. It was amazing to see how engaged some of the young children became. We could see role playing, curiosity, imagination, enhancing of fine motor skills and risk taking happening. In our room we love to give our young children the opportunity to explorer fragile resources such as glass, as it teaches our friends gentleness and it also gives them a sense of independence. “Our educators use loose parts, authentic resources and recycled materials to support the children’s creativity and inspire wonder for the world around them.” – Ruth Landau Harp Early Learning

Learning about Bees for Rosh Hashanah

🐝🍯A BEEutiful Excursion🍯🐝🐝🍯A BEEutiful Excursion🍯🐝 In the lead up to our Rosh Hashanah celebrations we have been exploring bees and honey. As a part of this topic’s program, we wanted to extend on our discovery and learning through an exciting incursion and that is exactly what we got! A big shout out to Luke’s Bees, who delivered an amazing experience for our children. From learning about the life cycle of a bee, to exploring different bee hives, trying on an apiarist uniform and even tasting raw honey extracted by Luke, the children were engaged and eager to learn more! Even the educators were curious and asking questions! After the demonstration, the children broke in to small groups and took part in a variety of experiences created by Luke to further extend on their learning. This included making their own bee life cycles, constructing bees from recycled materials, building a bee habitat with lego, tasting honey and having small group conversations with Luke so he could answer any other questions they might have. As I type this post, the children are using the peg bees they created with Luke in their own play, inspired by what they learnt this morning. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-12-08/luke-the-bee-boy-leads-crusade-to-save-the-bees/10511238

Practicing Our Fine Motor Skills

⛲️Pouring Fun⛲️⛲️Pouring Fun⛲️ Miss Marliana writes: “This morning our toddlers continued our exploration of the pouring experience with our beautiful Kiddush cup fountain. It was amazing to watch how the children were so calm, uninterrupted and engaged in the experience. They were in awe, watching how the red coloured water would flow down from the fountain and fill up each cup. They were so gentle and gracious in handling the beautiful authentic tableware.

One of our Favorite Stories!

🐻 We’re Going on a Bear Hunt 🐻🐻 We’re Going on a Bear Hunt 🐻 A favourite story in the Kindy Room at the moment is “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt”. The children get very excited when it is a story suggestion during mat time and can’t wait to retell with the help of the pictures in the book. They easily read along and recall how the characters wade through the grass, splash through the river and squelch through the mud in search of the bear. Recently one of our wonderful educators created a multi sensory experience for the children to reenact the story. The children’s excited giggles could be heard all throughout the centre.
