National aboriginal day theme

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.

Random activities

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.
