As we all know it is important to always encourage our children and acknowledge any positive behaviours and achievements. We understand that as parents, you all will have many moments where you have been proud of your child, so we would like to encourage you all to write a few positive lines about your child and any constructive things they have done. We can then read these out to all the children during group time as a way of affirmation and encouragement.
Children celebrate the joys of making and having friends with our friendship theme. These behaviours are reinforced when children worked together to draw a picture, send each other thank you card for acts of kindness, learn to read each other’s names, and act out friendship skits.
With friendship children got ample opportunities for discussion, decision-making, cooperation, and evaluation. During friendship activities children showed great interest and enthusiasm. Educators routinely planed and delivered a wide variety of educational experiences, which incorporate music, art, dramatic play and motor development.
