Fine Motor Skills
Before we started handwriting this year we did lots of fine motor skills practice during stations time in the morning. We were threading, pegging, building, using links, beading and practiced holding our pencils and scissors correctly.
Aistear - Halloween and The Costume Shop
This week fir Aistear we did the costume shop. We too turns working as shop assistants, managers, staff on the till and customers. We were excellent at using questioning vocabulary during drama, to ask for different sizes and enquire about ordering costumes for certain ages and interests. We were modeling Halloween shapes and following instructions with playdough and for messy play we made potions with lots of water and glitter and used our imaginations to decide what our potions would do! We also built haunted house, witches brooms, cauldrons and other Halloween items at the construction station.
