Moral Conscience Theme: Personal Space

The fun continued this week! We are really settling into a nice routine now and our Bugs are getting into the swing of things! We started with some fun art activities and continued with extra mural demos this week and it is starting to feel like the holidays are well and truly behind us and that the new year has officially begun! We are seeing great things from our Bugs, and we are very proud of them.

“Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes, Knees and Toes!” What a fun week with an exciting theme to go along with it! We are very proud to say that our Bugs know all of their body parts, including some of the trickier ones like ankle, elbow and chest! We just love how practical and hands on this theme can be and we love the excited looks on our Bugs faces when they point excitedly to a body part they know!

As a fun learning activity this week, the Bugs were each given a label from our theme board and asked to find and label the correct parts of Teacher Kate-Lynn. They of course thought this was the funniest thing ever and seeing Teacher Kate-Lynn at the end with labels stuck all the way from her hair to her toes made everyone laugh even more!

We chatted about our moral theme, respecting other people’s personal space, and we all drew bubbles around us in the air. Our teachers explained that no one is allowed into your bubble if you don’t allow it. We then did an activity where we asked our friends for hugs. If they said it was okay, we moved into their space to give a hug. If they said no, we respected their choice. We also chatted about things like “What happens when your body gets hungry?” and then “Where does food go when you eat it?” Also, “what happens if you don’t brush your teeth?” We had a great time engaging their existing knowledge of the topic and then building on it.

Even though our number for the week was 1 we can happily report that most of our Bugs can count up to 10. We played a game at ring time where each of them had to go find ONE RED thing in the class. What a fun game! We had red shoes, blocks and books! Well done, Busy Bugs!

For our art activity this week, we traced the outline of Teacher Gemma’s body, painted it wild and wonderful colours, and then went searching through magazines to find pictures of our different body parts, which we then stuck all over the painted body. We asked the Bugs to tell us which body part they were about to stick down before they did and tried (this didn’t go 100% according to plan) to get them to stick the pictures of the parts, in the relatively same area on the traced body as they would go.

We look forward to spending many more, happier weeks with these awesome Bugs!

Have a great weekend and we will see you next week for one of our favourite themes!

Lots of Love

The Busy Bugs teachers and assistants!
