This month is animal month and we have been learning all about farm animals!
Every week or two we have a new over riding theme that we focus our play activities on (though it is quite a loose theme as I am a fan of free play).
This week our morning basket has contained the farm and play animals and books about the farm. We have had oats and farm animals in the sensory bin. We have had farm puzzles and books in our hygge bags. I think this weekend that a trip to the farm may be in order!
In our more focused activities we have been lining up animals to count them, painting pictures of animals, working on learning animal names and sounds and singing a lot of animal songs! Old McDonald is a favourite.
Our colour for the week has been green. We explored green spaghetti in the sensory bin and have been creative with green paints. My daughter has been going through her ninth wonderleap, which is all about principles and so we have been learning about different emotions too!
