A Fish Out of Water
Do you recognise this fish?
Yes! This is our goldfish that lives in the fish tank at Kindergarten.
We have to remember to feed him each day with fish food.
The last time I fed him, I dropped to much food into his tank!
Never mind, our goldfish was fine, he ate it all up and stayed healthy.
It did remind me of a great story called A Fish Out of Water.....enjoy.
A FISH OUT OF WATER -The STORYBOOK
CREATIVITY AND PLAYING TO LEARN
Make your own "Otto the Fish"
You can use play blocks, or cardboard, large stones from your garden, leaves or you could draw and cut out your own fish.
Watch the video and come up with your own great ideas for a playing and acting out a story with Otto the Fish.
Questioning encourages children to expand their thoughts rather than giving yes or no answers.
What do you think would happen if… ?
Why do you think…?
How does… ?
How can you…?
After you have listened to the story, encourage a play scenario. Ask questions and explore your child's ideas. Play and questioning builds upon their comprehension of the story and it also encourages mathematical thinking ( size, weight, direction and quantity) language development and creativity. This is supported when the children recall the story, play with different sized containers, order the sequence of events, pour water in and out, imagine and create.
