Learning Notes - Week 2, Term 4 2009

34


After deciding I liked last week's new format, David admits he prefers headings for each child. As one of the purposes of keeping learning notes is for his benefit, I'm going to play a bit more with the format.

I've already shared much of the group work we did with the R. Family. So this is more individual notes.

Little Ones
They were focused on playing dress-ups and sandplay with their friends. I did introduce Genvieve to Starfall, she was pretty keen, hopefully we'll have time to explore more next week.
Read PB Bear Sandcastle Surprise to the group and painted a watercolour painting.
