Snap Snap Snap - 15th April 2021

Spontaneous: This morning for group time, the children decided that they would like to sing some songs. Mannix showed us his dinosaur and said, "he can sing too". I put my fingers up and started to move them, "What song do you think I'm going to sing?" Josh called out, "Twinkle twinkle". I said, "Good guess, but try again. "Open/Shut them" Eddie called out. "Yes!" I said. The children started to giggle and talk amongst themselves. I started singing and they joined in. "Who knows the song Cheeky Monkeys?" Eddie started to sing a few words. All the educators joined in and and the children watched and began to copy the actions. Marlee held her hands near her face 'teasing Mr crododile' then SNAP she moved her hands just as Sandra (educator) role modelled. I turned the song on the iPad and showed the children the actions that go with the song. We all stood up and did it together. It was fun to see the children laughing and giggling as they attempted to follow the instructions in the song.
