This term we are working on developing our listening skills as part of our big focus on phonological awareness.
Today the children watched and listened to the author Michael Rosen tells his story without using the book.
The children enthusiastically watched his body language as he told the familiar story. They copied Michael’s movements and become more confident as the story progressed.
Damon said “We copy the man to get to see the bear.”
It was wonderful to watch this experience and how the children expressed themselves using a variety of gestures, movements and emotions.
Ellie reflected afterwards saying “We’re not going on a bear hunt again because the bear came.”
