The children listened to the story, Buxu Jsib Tezor. They played a fishing game. The children were split in two groups and used a fishing rod to catch some fish. Once they caught a fish they had to identify the number written on the fish. The children made a cat using toilet paper rolls using their favourite colour.
The children took turns to play the role of Buxu (wearing ears) outdoors. The other children played the role of Buxu’s cat friends. They counted numbers to play hide and seek while Buxu went hiding in a bucket that was full of fish which he shared with his friends and family.
The children had some time to improve their mathematical skills by using the beebot with cards/pictures taken from the book of Buxu.
Using the theme Goldilocks and the Three Bears, kinder incorporated a sorting game of small, medium and large, and two activities on the interactive white board, namely, sorting colours and value of numbers. The activity finished off by colouring masks of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
Children tried to guess the object they picked from the box, blind folded. Then they had to put the object on the right letter.Then we tried to build up a story with the objects used in the game or describing the object chosen.
K1.3 started the day by going through the story using puppets. Then children created a mask using different characters of the story. Going through the process of a planted bean, the children were given some cotton wool to sow a bean in a cup (the beanstalk).
They were also given some playdough mats to create their own beans, coins, beanstalk and eggs. Numeracy (counting beans) was integrated with the learning experience. A leaf template was presented where children could count the beans according to the number shown.
Flower flashcards were given to create them on the mats followed by colouring to add on. The last activity included matching pictures.
With the help of the story “The three little pigs”. Story and song – story sequence and flashcards. Related activities: Numeracy: house measuring, counting of 3 pigs, 3 houses,3 hats etc.
Science: air can move things. The wolf blows the houses down. Hot or cold water. Sensory trays: twigs, straws, lego bricks, leaves and plastic pigs. Crafts: pigs and wolf mask, building house craft, stick puppets, pig balloons.
K2.3 visited two farms within walking distance from school. Although some children complained about the walk they enjoyed it. They were overwhelmed with this experience. They were able to hold, pet, feed and bottle feed the animals and sow some basil seeds.
