We went to one of the reservoir nearby this week, instead of the park. It is always nice to go out early morning and get some fresh air.
As usual, we started off by singing the welcome song and recapping on colours and shapes.
Followed by an interesting story about a very busy spider told by A. It was nice to have a book the children can interact with. I think it engages them better that way.
After the story, we proceeded to let the children have some fun at texture rubbing. Perhaps they were too young to understand what is going on, nevertheless it was a good experience.
Most children (and mummies) were hungry by the end of the activity and we were glad it was time to have some snacks!
More storytelling and songs in Chinese after tea.
And then one of my favourite activities, Practical Life. My favourite because much thought and theory has been put into these activities. We are lucky to have mummies who are more experienced in early childhood education. It really makes a difference as there are so many activities that I wouldn’t have think of myself. After being a P6 teacher for so many years, I am somehow rather rusty and inexperienced in such activities for younger children.
And finally, we sang our action songs and let the children play at the playground nearby.
So guess, who was very very tired at the end of the session?
