T looks at me and say Lucie look I have gloves! Lol
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.
We coloured and cut a paper doll and I laminated one set for extended play.
We had fun games with Punchinello
A little bit of French and Spanish body parts
Of course there was some baking through all that
We made our own animated cartoon with this little book (if you flip the pages fast you could see the eyes closing.
We learned about the 5 senses and had a blinded sensory activity trying to guess what we were touching.
