A small group of children, including Jason, began helping Miss Lisa make turtles and shark sculptures out of the sand. (Proud and strong)
Later, during outdoor play, Miss Lisa noticed Jason sitting on a digger truck in the sandpit. She approached the sandpit and began playing in the sand.
Miss Lisa: Jason, can you tell me what an elephant looks like so I can make one out of sand?
Jason: Elephant e big. (Learner)
Miss Lisa: Yes, elephants are very big so I will need to make a big body with the sand. What else do elephants have?
Jason: Em got long nose.
Lisa talked with Jason about how an elephant has a trunk and that it is long and what an elephant uses a trunk for. (Healthy and safe)
Jason: Em got big thangela. (Active participant)
Miss Lisa: Wow! You do know a lot about elephants. (Communicator)
Miss Lisa: I wonder why they have got such big ears?
Jason: Em too fat… I can’t carry m.
During this conversation, Lachlan came over and watched and listened.
Miss Lisa: Have you ever seen a real elephant Jason?
Jason: No, but I bin see m on TV and I bin look m in book.
He then made a noise like an elephant and Lachlan began doing this as well. They ran off together pretending to be elephants.
