Shops & Shopping




Oval / Triangular Prism





Qq – Queue

What do you buy when you go to the shops?  Milk, sweeties, honey, chippies, clothes, toys and much, much more! These were just a few of the answers we got from our Bugs when we asked them that question, they were very happy to share their entire shopping lists with us and which shops Mommy and Daddy like to shop at. We spoke about different types of shops and what items you can buy in each of them. Grocery shops sell food and everything we need for the house. Clothes shops sell clothes for the whole family. Furniture shops sell beds, couches, and tables for the house and so many more. 

We showed the Bugs the different logos from our more common shops in Benoni, and we are proud to say that they knew what every shop was! 

For this week’s art, our Bugs made their own Eco wallets and purses so that they could put their pretend money in, which they used for shop-shop activity to buy all their items with. However only the wallets and purses will go home, we will be keeping the fake money for the years to come.   

Thank you to all of our Busy Bugs parents for supporting this activity by bringing items for our Ecokids shop and a big thank you to Pops Toys for sponsoring the very cool shopping bags. Our Bugs had so much fun doing their shopping and whatever they could get their hands on, they put in their trolleys and baskets. We hope they enjoy all their little goodies. 

Have a wonderful weekend.  

Love, your Bugs teacher’s and assistants

Father’s Day and Sport

We spent lots of time this week asking our Bugs questions about their Dads; What their names are, if they know how old their Dads are, what work Dad does, whether he plays any sports… And we while didn’t always get answers to all of these questions, one thing we can say for certain, is that very clear that our Bugs just LOVE their Dads!

The Farm: Farm Animals

The Farm: Farm Animals

We learned all about the different noises these animals make, and the different names that the boy and girl animals have, such as hen and rooster or sheep and ram. We learned the names of the baby animals, like chick, lamb and piglet! It was such fun pretending to be these animals at ring time! Our children have very vivid imaginations and have a lot of existing knowledge about farm animals.
