On the craft table, some children finished off painting the clay models they made last week. We all spent some time making clouds which are hung across the preschool building. And everyone had a go at painting pictures with very thick and very thin brushes - we really enjoyed experimenting with the different widths and seeing what lines we could make.
On the construction table, we played with sticklebricks. They are sort of sticky and grip really well - construction enables us to develop both our physical skills and our imaginations.
We have also looked at making a magic name card! We looked at our name, cut it out, sounded out our letters and ordered the letters in our name. Some of the children had help and some did it all on their own. It is important at preschool to discuss and help make the children aware of the meaning behind their mark making and letter formation.
