Hh – House

This week in the Curious Crew class , we enjoyed our daily theme discussions , we spoke about different kind of houses , and we also took the time to discuss the different rooms we get in our homes. We discussed as well what we do in each room and what we can find in those rooms too.

We emphasised that each house is different, in some way or another , and we explained that that’s okay. In our discussion we covered that everyone’s home will have something different to the friend next to us , and we emphasised that it’s not the size of the home it’s the amount of love that’s inside it. We focused quite a lot on our number letter and colour of the week too , practicing rhymes and counting everyday. We took the time and practiced counting and stopping at number 8

For Art this week , we made a very unique , and original Art piece using cereal boxes , cork painting and pictures from magazines . The class used the corks to stamp heads, and they had to do one for each member in their home. We then divided the board into four ( demonstrating rooms) one for kitchen , bedroom , bathroom and lounge. The class had to then page through magazines finding a picture for each room.

We also did a colouring in work sheet of a very messy bedroom. And that the Tidy Up Elf was an Elf that comes to all the messy bedrooms and he starts taking toys one by one and before we know it the tidy up elf has taken all the toys you didn’t want to clean up – so we used this to emphasis the importance of cleaning up your room and after yourself.

Land, Air and Sea Transport

During ring time every morning we tried to get the Crew to use ’transport’ in the sentences they used when describing different types of transport. We want them to understand the concept of what transport means and that yes its cars and trucks and planes and boats but what are the purposes for these great machines? It was very funny to hear when asking the Crew how do we know where to go and we have never been there before…the map on mommy and daddy’s phone. LOL Back in the day it was a book with addresses and road maps. But good answer Crew!

The Farm: Farm Animals

The Farm: Farm Animals

The week started off with the Crew’s first Reggio Emilia Loose Parts art project. The Crew had in front of them farm animals, small acorns, white pebbles, Jacaranda seed pods and corks. They were instructed to make their own farm using these materials. It was very interesting to see who loved this art piece and who wasn’t quite interested. How they went about setting out their farm yards. Lovely work Crew. We will be doing a Reggio Emilia art piece each week as an intermural activities. Let the imaginary play really begin!
