Kalan’s Timeline

Today Kalan celebrates his third birthday. Kalan’s mum has designed a poster of photos that depict Kalan’s daily life. At group time Kalan had presented his poster to the group. He held the pointing stick in his left hand as he pointed to each photo and described it in-depth of his activity. Kalan was excited as he told the group about the activities that he and dad do at the skate park, at home and at the Lakes. Dad was very proud as he watched on from a distance. Dad then sat with Kalan to blow out the candles on the birthday cake.

 

 

The community wall

This morning Ms Nerissa introduced an important aspect of our community to the children. It is the community wall space.

This means there are spaces on the wall for anyone to put up pictures, writing samples, photos, invitations and anything else they feel is necessary information to share within our Kidscape community.

Ms Nerissa explained to the children that they are able to take home the camera and link book and take photos of things they do when they’re not at Kidscape. Then they can write a summary to explain what is happening in the photo. The children may not want to take photos instead they may want to draw a picture in the link book.

Once the children have a picture in their link book then they return the link book and camera to the centre and place their picture onto the community wall.

The community wall is our version of face book meaning it is a social space where everyone is welcome to share information. While Ms Nerissa is explaining the concept to the children Ms Bernadette is explaining the concept to Maxwell’s grandma (Maxine). Maxwell maybe taking the camera and book home to take photos of his new house that he has moved into. 

Niamh said she will put up her family holiday photos on her space on the community space wall. Niamh said she wants everyone to see her holiday photos and how much fun she had with her family.

Outcome .2.1.1:  Children begin to recognise that they have the right to belong to many communities. (EYLF)
