Humpty Dumpty

We have learned a few skills here including cutting, dying on wet strength cartridge with crayon resist, and folding paper to create a zigzag.

 Look below the Humpties and see one of our brand new heaters. We will be toasty and warm this winter! I wonder what colour the new paint will be. We will find out after the holidays.

We are learning how to play one chord on the ukelele and strum.
See if we can remember to hold the ukelele body against our tummy, put our thumb on the velcro dot and our finger on the number one. Then see if we can strum in time.

Helping at home

I help my mum with the dishes.

I help my Dad cook the cake.

I go to the shops to help my Mum.

I can do my own bed.

I make my bed for Mum. I hang my bag up.

I am going to tidy the garage.

I am cleaning my Dad's truck.

I clean the toilet with the brush.

I clean my room. I put my toys in my toy box.

Estuary Visit

Thank you so much to the wonderful parents who came and helped our children dig for crabs, find whelks and mud snails, and have a great experience at the estuary.

I imagine your children will be bugging you to take them back to see what they found. We just went to Lindoch Ave which is off Snodgrass Road. Nice and close!

Enjoy our faces in this movie as we experience the magic of nature.
