5 Little Monkeys
The Afternoon children enjoy coming together at the end of the session for some fun and laughter. Finding humour is a wonderful Habit of Mind to devlop and active group games can be the perfect way to foster this habit. On this day, Gael had her monkey finger pupperts and the tamariki used their counting skills to count down the monkeys as the crocodile snapped them up! Concentration was needed to figure out how many fingers to hold up as each monkey disappeared. Managing our impulsivity while waiting for a turn is quite tricky, when there is so much excitement happening! Turn taking is a great skill to practise in a group situation. This is great, he rawe tēnā!
