Look at the children play hide and seek today.
Today was Mackie’s last day of school, he would be going to a different school. Mackie wanted us to make cookies, we also read one of his favorite books. Some of the children asked him why he was going to a different school and he said “I’m going to Henry’s school.” We are going to miss him, Good-bye Mackie.
Puppetry is important play because it forces the children to use their imagination, be creative and it’s open-ended (no right or wrong way). It develops language, lisening skills and confidence, to express feelings and helps shy children be more confident.
Sophie, was signing winnie the pooh. “He’s a really nice bear.”
Abigail: “Camptain America.”
Oscar: “How do you do?” “The lions name is thing one, I have a costume.” “My friends name is fin.”

Arianna: “Hello my nmae is the frog.” “Today we are having a celebrate a puppet show for a long time, now we need a frog lady’s and gentlemen.” “We jump on the ground.” “Abra..Cadraba…” “Wait fellows getting my other puppet and hello my name is frog fish.”
Noa:”I don’t know and I didn’t do it again.”
Olliwer: “I like you… I like you …”
Building provides exploration with different materials. Some children are drawn into the exploration others are more recluctant. Children might grasp the idea quickly to build their towers and other children might take them time. We are here to give them the time they need, as you can see in the pictures above.
The children have been taking about towers. We put some wooden pieces out for them to start making their own tower. The children have been working on problem solving because some of the pieces kept falling down (the glue was wet). We will keep on working on the towers and see where it takes us.
