Cutting Jelly Cubes

By July 13, 2017July 16th, 2017Blog

Even as experienced practitioners, we were all amazed at the rich language vocalised during this fine motor skills activity.

“Please can I cut the cube?”

“I got a cube off”

“It’s sticky”

“I’ve got 2 to do left”

“We be careful because they will cut your fingers”

“I got 2 cubes off”

“I cut 3 off”

“1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10”

“It’s a cutting machine”

“Oh well that’s good I cutted a green jelly up”

“We’re cutting our cubes in half”

“The green ones are good choices, the red ones are bad”

“Jelly on a plate, jelly on a plate, wibble wobble, wibble wobble, jelly on a plate”

“Teeny tiny, it’s very small”

“It’s a little pyramid”

“Please can I cut the cube?”

“What happens if I cut it in half again?”

“I built a house, it needs a roof”

“Look, I did it”

“I don’t believe it. I made a ruined pyramid!”

This activity resulted in covering all 7 areas of learning: Communication and Language, Physical Development, Personal, Social, Emotional, Literacy, Understanding the World, Maths, and Expressive Arts and Design. Can you spot them all?
