Reflection: Dolls with the doll house is a very popular activity for our preschool children. I love to set up the table with soft and bright color mats, so that it will be appealing for the children. Also I provide space for at least five to six children for their activity. When I was planning this activity- I was curious, what will be their ideas-will they play princess game or Mummy, sister? When J came to the preschool, she was so excited to observe all the dolls and doll house on the table. After washing her hands, she sat there and picked all the dolls from the bamboo tray, to my surprise, she said, "This is teacher", Holding the big doll and the others she was telling her friend's name. Two girls together were taking their role as a teacher and student -Both of them were telling stories, singing songs and sometimes guiding as well. It was amazing to observe how engaged, playful and expressive they were when they have the opportunity to explore with the warm environment.

E is observing carefully that the bear is sitting on the rectangle block.
He carefully placed the triangle besides the bear.
My reflectionE always likes to observe other children activity before he will join to his own activity at the preschool .Yesterday when he came to the school ,at first he was focusing on his art .When he finished his texture collage then, he was very curious about block construction .M was building something with the various shapes block .Mashaallah we are so lucky to have a such a nice block unit in our preschool .E was observing him carefully ,when M moved to the dramatic play area , E joined to the block area.He sat down in front of the block unit and then he started to build something with the block.At the beginning he decided to add the half circle shape wooden block and then gradually he was adding various shapes and sizes wooden block for his construction .It was amazing for us to watch his perseverance-every time the tower was broken he started to build it again .He added a bear on the block and said bear .He was looking at the bear for few second and he put triangle wooden block beside the bear.Another thing was so surprising for me to observe that E knows that after triangle shape he will not be able to put another block on the triangle .He was engaged with this activity for longer time and we did not distract him for our transition.We waited until he finished his activity .
