Felt Board Experience - 11th February 2022

Spontaneous: This morning we had group time on the outdoor stage. Sandra (educator) got a felt board and some felt board Pieces out for the songs "five cheeky monkeys" and "five jelly fish". The children gathered around Sandra. Sandra organised the felt board on the stage. She had a tree cutting using felt board sheet. Sandra had five monkeys and a crocodile pictures. Sandra placed the monkeys on the trees and started to sing the song "five cheeky monkeys swinging on the tree" and the children sang along. Then each child had a turn to snap the monkeys as we sang. The children were excited to take turns. Once that song was finished Sandra started the "five jelly fish" song. Children took turns with the jelly fish while singing the song. Children enjoyed this visual experience and participated with interest and enthusiasm.
