Special Easter Visitors in Senior Infants
Spring Garden Hunt
Our Aistear theme this month is homes. We have been making furniture from Play Dough, houses from Lego, a STEM challenge to create a house for the wolf from the three little pigs. We have been sorting food into different categories in our roleplay.
We have been doing lots of cutting and pasting furniture labels for different rooms in the house. We have also been playing games with our tricky words and letter sounds.
