In Green Class we are learning new things everyday. We have enjoyed exploring our Outdoor Garden, making new friends and sharing our experiences.
Fine Motor Skills
We are making our hand muscles stronger so that it will help us to hold our pencils with comfort and this is getting us ready to write.
We have been recognising digits, ordering them and counting the right amount of objects for a number.
We have been continuing patterns, creating our own and we even went on a pattern hunt around our school!
We selected a drawing program on the iPad. We were able to choose different colours and follow different commands such as when you shake the iPad your drawing would disappear and you can create a new one.
This week we have been reading The Little Red Hen. In this story the hen made a loaf of bread, so in class we tried 4 different types. We tried seedy bread, French stick, bread sticks and pitta bread.
As we have been exploring the story The Little Red Hen we decided to make our own hedgehog bread. We discussed the ingredients which were oil, flour, yeast, warm water, salt and sugar and mixed them together in a bowl to form a dough. After everyone had a turn at kneading their dough.
Next we used our fingers to pinch on the hedgehog's spikes and used 3 raisons for the eyes and the nose. Once we had finished decorating our hedgehog's we left them to rise for an hour.
We put them in the oven for 25 minutes. Once they were cool, they were ready to eat. Yum yum!
