Reading and Writing at the Doctor's office

We recently read the picture book, Doctor Ted. This lovely book is about a little boy and his very big imagination. It inspired us to turn our house corner into a doctor's office. We have added medical tools; a telephone; a waiting area and a reception area. The children have been busy acting as secretary, nurse, doctor and patient. One day we looked at a real O.H.I.P. card and then the children were very busy creating their own play O.H.I.P. card.

December writing

During the month of December the Kinders had various opportunities to write for different reasons. At Santa's workshop they were encouraged to make lists using Christmas pencils, Christmas list paper and copies of toy catalogues. At the writing table the children were provided with special Christmas paper and Christmas cards. They were encouraged to write letters to Santa and to write Christmas cards to loved ones. We were very proud of the beautiful writing that took place during play.
