As the weather had been quite cool during the past few weeks, we had been skipping water play. It seems that the weather is becoming warming this week, and we should be able to do water play again. The children should be very happy as they had been asking again and again about water play as it was their favourite activity.
Last week we continued our discussion on Nursery Rhymes. We can learn many things from Nursery Rhymes, and last week we focused on the concept of ‘up and down.’ We learned about ‘up and down’ through two Nursery Rhymes: ‘Hickory, Dickory Dock’, and ‘Jack and Jill’.’ We sang and recited the rhymes through books, songs, and the felt board. A big clock was put on the wall, and we got to move the mouse up and down the clock. We also looked at the face of the clock and saw the numbers. We talked about the numbers and tried to identify some of the numbers. Then we recited ‘Jack and Jill’. It is a new Nursery Rhyme for many of us, and we still found it hard to remember. We did have fun pretending to be Jack and Jill going up and down the hill. The hill was the foam ramp that we had brought into the classroom. We couldn’t help but go up and down several times. When we went out to the playground, we also ran up and down the small hill; and also talked about going up and down when we played on the slide.
As some of us are still confused about the concept of ‘up and down’, this week we will be reviewing this concept through ‘Incy Wincy Spider’. We will also be talking about ‘hot and cold’ through ‘I’m a Little Teapot.
