We had fun on Friday and also this coming week with the Christmas lesson plan, showing the children the signs for over the Christmas period and perhaps will show you another signed song soon but not this week.
A couple of the children got dressed up and I am hoping more will do this week and we also had plenty of food.
I remember saying it is important to talk about special moments in life and using the signs really does reinforce this, over the Christmas period the children really will pick up the signs and so you can make it fun with leaving a carrot for the reindeer and I love the sign for reindeer it makes me laugh. Put your hands at the side of your head (keep that tongue in my word) and then take your hands slightly away up and out represent the antlers of the deer.
Above after the session in the social time, the children were busy making decorations for the Christmas tree from their hands representing the signs we do. These will actually be used next year for a tree festival, one of the mums mixed everything and bought it along.
So yes we had a lovely Christmas lesson plan singing lots of festive songs and using lots of festive signs.
Thats it for now and hoping to add some more pictures over the coming week with more of the lesson plans being done, perhaps a active one when doing the reindeer hokey cokey, we put our right antler in, tee hee it is fun.
All the very best Heather.
