P A S T A p l a y ! 🍝This weeks #sensoryplay is all things pasta πŸ™Œ Today natural pasta with cars and trucks πŸš— β›Ÿ yesterday rainbow pasta with pipe cleaners and straws for #finemotor threading. We always have lots of cups and tongs for sorting. I'm so excited to see their faces when we have cooked RAINBOW SPAGHETTI 😁 . .

All they have wanted to do with it so far was fill the cups with pasta and add a staw to make 'milkshakes'. And we all know if a 5 year old hands you a pasta milkshake you drink it! πŸ˜‚πŸ₯› . .
All this food role play has inspired me to change my vet dramatic play to an Italian restaurant πŸ½πŸ•πŸπŸ¦ (pinterest has been my best friend) *watch this space . .

S A N D P L A Y for our #sensory / #smallworlds learning area this week! We had dinos 🐊 logs and number rocks with the sand today. We have also had trucks (such a fave), animals, people & shape blocks with the sand trays to mix things up πŸ˜›
Was thinking of adding some water to the sand and making it into a mini beach tomorrow with shells, sticks, rocks and ocean animals. πŸ³πŸ‹πŸ¬πŸŸπŸ πŸ¦ˆπŸ‘πŸ™πŸšπŸ™πŸ¦πŸ¦‘ My entire classroom will most likely turn into a sandy wet beach mess but I wouldn't have it any other way! πŸ˜„

If you have any sensory play / small worlds ideas send them my way! πŸ‘‡ or of you're following any awesome early childhood and teaching accounts, I'd love to follow more for inspo ✌

I think i totally ROCKED my first Mother's Day event! πŸ˜ŽπŸ’β€β™€οΈπŸ˜ Today we had a Pamper Afternoon in Pre-Primary which was a total success πŸ™Œ Mommas indulged with a mani/pedi and hand cream massageπŸ’….They also had a shoulder massageπŸ’†β€β™€οΈ, photobooth with props😘, necklace or key ring makingπŸ’Ž (kids made the beads themselves) and portrait drawingπŸ‘©β€πŸŽ¨. They preformed a beautiful little song for their mums😍 and we even had some chocie cake which one of my sweet mommas made and kindly brought in. πŸ°βœŠπŸ‘Š so blessed to have such a supportive group of parents ❀ *Side note: It was the most endearing thing to watch some of my rough and tumble boys be so gentle and caring to their mum's today! It definitely gave me all the 😍 feels.

This magic ball of squish is ready on hand every day of the year. It's a #teacherlifesaver and my cherubs just ADORE it! Poking, rolling, squishing, (and sometimes even tasting πŸ˜•πŸ˜) this has got to be an all year fav activity. πŸ™Œ #playdough #letthembelittle #letthemplay #playeveryday

Perfect Sydney Day! 🌞 sight seeing πŸ“· day drinking 🍸 people people watching πŸ‘€ wish it didn't end so soon! 😭 Til next time #sydney #happytravellers

P L A Y D O U G H fun! 🐊 Look at this invitation to play 😍 Dinos have been a big hit in our classroom lately. They have loved hiding them, building them and making prints with the play dough. Super inviting to initiate some great role play and investigation. Not to mention what an awesome fine motor, oral language and social skills activity it is πŸ˜πŸ‘ #playeveryday #letthembelittle #letthemplay #playbasedlearning #playdough

Scensory Play!πŸ¦„ Oh how I love my #sensoryplay and #smallworldsplay 😍 Today we had a fresh batch of rainbow rice 🍚 and I just had to take a before play picture of my lovely UNMIXED #rainbowrice all ready for my little cherubs to play with. Their little faces full of excitement 'do we get to mix it!?' πŸ˜ƒ Yes my darlings, I couldn't stop you if I tried. 😜

Today we had a mix of teddies 🐻 and dinos 🐊 as well as scoopers and cups. Tomorrow more scoopers as well as magnetic letters and magnet rods #letterfishing
