For our first nation week theme we built a Teepee scene with canoes a fire pit for the lala loopsies so the children could play and try to understand how they used to live before Europeans as we read in some of the book I got from the library.
We look at “Norval Morrisseau” a famous native artist and try to paint and draw in his style.
Ever since we left winter and got into nicer weather we have been spending more time outside and I have been taking less photos and I done fewer blog post so this is a medley of Mother’s day, Father’s day and other things.
Mother’s day craft…children decorated a cup put play dough in it to hold the flowers that they made…
I have added children educative computer games to the pre-schooled curriculum. This one was a game to learn French and it turned out to be working because some children picked up a few word playing it.
We revisited the “growing theme”
Had a tracing sand box activity
Father’s day craft…a frame made from paper Mache by the children, they painted it and decorated it with foam stickers and I added a photo.
