How are you feeling today?

Each day at register and lunch time wae ask the children how they are feeling. Although many of the children use terms such as happy, sad, worried, etc they also use a whole range of  other words such as "squishy".

These terms a really useful and allow the children to try and verbalise times when they are somewhere in between happy or sad, worried or excited.

What words do they use when they are at home and what do you think they they are trying to describe?

Putting on our coats.

The children have been practicing putting their coats on by themselves...

Many children need support when learning new skills. Breaking a skill down into smaller steps can help a child learn one step at a time. 
At Baby Ducks we use this as a fun way for children to learn how to put their coats on. Just follow the steps below. If your child is unable to bend down or sit on the floor, you may want to put the coat on a low table before working on this sequence.
  1. Place the coat on the floor or table with the hood and sleeves flat. If the coat doesn’t have a hood, make sure the label is clearly visible. You can put a colourful sticker on the label if it is small or difficult to see.
  2. Child stands behind the coat’s hood or label.
  3. Child places his arms in the sleeves of the coat. You may have to help him by keeping the sleeves straight.
  4. Flip! Child puts his arms straight out.
  5. Flop! Child lifts his arms up over his head.
  6. Over the Top! Child brings his arms back down and the coat is on! You may have to help him pull the coat down.
The first step is the key to getting the coat on properly. When your child is comfortable with the Flip Flop Over the Top steps, you can show him how to position the coat on his own.
