Purpose: To seek blessings from Allah SWT and to calm and activate the children's minds.
Summary: The activity was led by Teacher Ami of Excell Qhalif, who asked us to sit in a circle on the floor. She began with Salam and doa Alfatihah, as well as simple zikir for children.
2.Music & Movement
Purpose: To warm up and activate the chidlren's bodies before they do table tasks.
Summary: Led by Teacher Ami, and with help from parents, the children did action songs.
3. Indoor Play
Purpose: This activity is to help develop gross motor, fine motor, turn-taking, socialising and joint attention.
Summary: For this indoor play session, we did two activities. The first was a core strengthening exercise called the wheelbarrow.
For the second activity, we did another obstacle course. This time the children did a picture-matching activity while completing the course, which consisted of zig zag line, trampoline and rings.
4. Arts & Crafts
Purpose: This activity is to help develop fine motor, focus, seated behaviour, sensory integration, thinking and creativity.
Summary: For this week's arts and crafts session, which was led by Puan Adline, the children worked with cotton balls, coloured paper and glue to create sheep.
We did the session in the area outside the classroom for a change.
Some of the children completed their work early, so we gave them some pom pom balls and clothes pins for extra fine motor exercise.
5. Clean Up & Goodbye
At around 12.40 pm, we started cleaning up the area with help from the children. Then we sang the Goodbye Song and dispersed.
It was another smooth session, the children seem more settled down now. Arif was not so keen on taking part in some of the earlier activities, but all the kids enjoyed the obstacle course and arts and crafts session.
