Baby Silvie's Visit

BubbleShare: Share photos - Play some Online Games.

Room 16  is part of the ROOTS OF EMPATHY PROJECT - each term a baby has been coming to our class. Her name is Silvie. When Silvie comes to visit the Room 16 children, we talk about what she is doing.  We have talked about her milestones over the year and I must say, she has grown very big.  Jill is another teacher who runs the project and helps us to understand different kinds of feelings that we may have but can not talk about.   

I am sad today because it is Baby Silvie's second to last visit.  I think baby Silvie has changed by getting bigger.  I also noticed that she makes a lot of noises now.  She can also say "mum."  She still kicks her legs as she goes round the circle when we sing the ''hello baby Silvie and how are you'' song.

For Baby Silvie's last visit I think a party is a great idea and we should make sure we weigh and measure her.  I wonder how tall she is now?  I am looking forward to Silvie's last visit.  It will be a lot of fun!

Ariana shares her thinking about Baby Silvie:  
Baby Silvie has grown very big. She can say ma ma ma and even pull her self up. Silvie can pick up toys she want to play with and even let her mum know when she is hungry! Today the whole class got to see our baby eat mushed up apple!.... it did not look that nice - but she liked it.  

On her last visit I would like to share all the things we have learned. For me, I learned some important things like - do not drop a baby, never leave a baby on a high chair and that babies can drown in a teaspoon of water. Learning about baby Silvie has helped me to look after my friends and babies as well.

P.S: Thanks Jill for choosing our class to do Roots of Empathy!

Hello Room 16
I loved the photos of happy baby Silvie surrounded by smiling Room 16. She has grown so much. I hope she has some photos of you all to remember her experiences with you.

I made Jericho sing me the 'hello baby Silvie song'. Maybe you could record you all singing it and upload it onto you blog?

Enjoy your long weekend.

hi the blog is cool. By the look of those photos I can see the difference. I like the descriptive writing, it makes me feel like I'm there.

Dear Elle

Your writing is really good! Great grouping ideas and your ideas are super.
The pictures of Baby Silvie at the top of the screen moving along at the top of the screen are so cute!

KEEP IT UP!

Roots of Empathy is a wonderful programme isn't it? One of the schools down the road from me has this too and you might like to visit their webpage and see the beautiful baby who visits their class
