Term 2 Week 3 Diary

Term 2 Week 3 at kindy –

  • We read one of Mrs Ford’s favourite stories this week. The title of the story is “The Rainbow Fish”. In the story the Rainbow Fish learnt how to share and how to be a good friend. At first he didn’t want to share his scales because he wanted to look beautiful. Sadly though he didn’t have any friends. The Wise Old Octopus told him that in order to be happy he needed to share. When he started to share his scales with the other fish in the ocean he felt true happiness for the first time.  We are always trying to share at kindy so maybe that’s why we feel happy.
  • It was fun printing some paper to make it look like a rainbow. We could choose either printing with paint or painting with edicol dye. Then we traced, cut, stuffed and stapled to make our own Rainbow Fish to hang in the Home Corner. Come in and have a look at our beautiful coloured work.
  • Later in the week we conducted and observed an experiment that also involved the colours of the rainbow. We placed drops of edicol dye into a plate of milk. When we added a drop of dishwashing detergent it was like a colour explosion.
  • We are working hard to hold our pencils correctly and trace over our names on our name cards. We are also practising drawing straight lines that go from left to right.
  • Next week we will stay in the ocean and read more about the Rainbow Fish.
