The group woke up very early on our morning off campus just to get together and get to Sunnyside.It was very sunny(how relevant)and we were ready to tackle our tasks for the day. The activity for today was to teach the children how to apply their counting skills. We had about 30 printed copies of sheets with a number of circles with stars inside for the children to count and correlate the number of stars with the appropriate counting number. Compared to the first activity,the children were not as keen because there were no sweets involved. This also made some of us nervous because we didn't have any incentives for the kids but we went into the activity strong headed. Because the children recognized us they were comfortable and that put us at ease. With regards to the children's reaction to the activity, we found that some of the children were bored because their counting skills were intact whereas some children really struggled to co-ordinate the number of stars with the relevant counting number. One of the challenges of the day was controlling the children because of the elevated excitement and the fact that it was Flora's birthday (A girl from Gugulethu's learning group) didn't make it better. Overall,today was already draining for some of us and also made some of us realise that we could actually do this for a living. Haha...
