Sami completed a whole sheet of subtraction sums with verbal and visual support. Sometimes he over counted, so I verbally prompted him to rub out and start again, which he did. He also needed some verbal prompts to start counting again at the correct number. Sami seemed to enjoy doing this and pointed to ‘happy’ on his feelings sheet when asked.

During morning circle time, as a class we were discussing about how we are feeling and what zone we are in. This was modelled to Eva by an adult talking about their feelings. Eva was prompted to look at the zone of regulation lanyard cards to explore the different emotions we may experience. Eva was looking between green and blue zone when she heard “happy” or “tired”. The adult instructed her and said to choose if she was happy or tired. Eva was fleeting between both and we acknowledged that. Later, she was asked to come to the interactive whiteboard and choose the the colour she was feeling. She was looking at the blue zone, so with adult support, we selected Eva’s photo and slid it across to the blue zone, repeating that Eva is feeling tired so she is in the blue zone.
