Every morning and afternoon a child is chosen to be the golden child in Nursery. One of their special jobs for the day is to go around with the teacher and say either “good morning” or “good afternoon” to all of their friends while the adult takes the register. The Golden Child gets to choose how to greet their friends. So far we have chosen a high five, a hug, a fist bump and a wave. Can you think of some more fun ways that we can greet each other each day?
We feel this is a lovely start to the session, prompting friendships and confidence building for the children along with encouraging them to speak in a simple sentence as we also say “Good morning/ afternoon _____”. Here are some photos of us greeting our friends:
