My Senses










Another action-packed week full of busy amazing activities in our Hopper classroom. Our Happy Hoppers had a fun week learning and an engaging week in the classroom discussing our five senses.  

Throughout the week we worked on a progressive art piece where the kids created a “Five Senses” puppet. We started with a discussion about each of our five senses and the purpose they serve.

After that we painted our handprints. And then colored in our eyes, nose, ears, and mouth. We then painted our paper plates which was fun and messy. At the end of the week, we put our puppets together. Oh boy was this so much fun. The kiddies chose where they wanted to stick their facial features. They had so much fun making these puppets and loved telling Teacher Cecilia and Teacher Katy that the eyes are to see beautiful things sometimes not so beautiful things to see and experiences. Our sense of sight, the nose for the sense of smell, ears for the sense of hearing, the mouth for the sense of taste and the hands for the sense of touch! We just love it when our Hoppers can tell us all about what they are learning about during Ring Time!

We still have some shy little people, but this will surely improve with time. They experienced a fun activity where they got to taste all sorts of different tastes. The expressions on our Hopper faces were so funny and  cute!

  YAY YAY YOGA DAYis always so much fun with Teacher Nicole our Hoppers just loves her so much. 

 Our theme next week is: Health and Hygiene.

Caring For Our World: Recycling

Caring For Our World: Recycling

This week was all about recycling. This is a huge favourite for our Ecokids as this is what we are all about. Looking after our world is so important. We spoke about what it means to recycle. This isn’t an easy concept for our Hoppers to understand but we are sure they got the just of it by the end of the week. We sang lots of recycling songs and they definitely know the words REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE.
