Story I loved hearing this story over at the hub with one of the children – it made me laugh but also sad – sometimes we don’t know why we are grumpy – thanks to Tracey for this story suggestion
Signs of the day – check out the Category on here for today’s signs – I enjoyed yesterday’s fruits
Music – check out Connie’s entry for today under Music
Sensory – how about using an empty bottle and making your own sensory bottle? It is great to look at when maybe feeling a bit angry or confused like the monkey in the story (especially if add some glitter if have any left over from Christmas)
It was another sunny day yesterday so hope fully the sun will shine again today!
Here is the timetable for the Day
Emotions – I have included an emotions task for you to complete when you are picking your emotions today. You can find it on the daily e-mail. You can print out if you can from the e-mail or open it up and point to the screen with a helper.
Life skills – Have you tried the laundry yet this week?Here is a handy card to help you sort out your colours from your whites. You can print out as a cut and stick activity or use it to make a laundry ‘game’ of the washing tasks in your house.
Movement – have a go at this dance to waken you up this morning……love this song!!
Maths – See the Math Blog posts for some new activities today.
Fiddly Fingers – Can you try this challenge today? When the clothes are washed take them out and hang them up to dry using pegs.
Story – you can tune in to David Walliams Elevenses for a story read aloud by the author himself. Today’s story is from the book The Worst Children. Enjoy!
Music – Gordon has put some new music activities on the Blog today
Sensory /Dance – Dance with Rachel. Can you learn the new moves she has put on her post? Use the sensory lights post to listen to relaxing music after the dancing has finished. A great way to end the day.
The painting of pebbles and leaving them around for others to find is something that is popular all over the world. Perhaps you could write a word or a nice message on a stone and then hide it either in your home or garden for a family member to find or if you are out for a short walk then for a stranger to find. When found it will make the person feel very happy and then they could leave it somewhere else for someone else to find and so it goes on. A never ending source of joy!
For today’s PE we’re going to have a couple of challenges. First why not going for a walk? Walking is a great exercise for your body and mind and it’s not every day we have this good weather in Scotland. To make it more interesting we can agree some challenges with our family like, count the trees we see, count the birds, look for bears and rainbow in windows, we can even make it a competition who can see more birds, trees, red objects etc. Just remember you should always walk close to home (no driving) and keep social distance.
Another great idea would be to Join Vicky community group page we’re going on a bear hunt, just follow the link:
