This week we had another look at our littles in their play zone. They have so much fun together!
Then a wonderful surprise today with a special puppet theatre and loads of puppets! We continued our African literature study learning about various fables and the lessons that were being presented in them. The children then split into groups to do a puppet show that taught a lesson, using African animal puppets.
Some of us got very excited during the performance. 🙂
For recess today Ms. S and Ms. M took advantage of the dry weather and took the group to the park for playground time and snack.
Here’s an independent inquiry to do with your children: look up pictures of African villages. These little houses look very similar to the grass and stick roofed homes found in the more rural/ traditional African villages.
One thing we are really proud of is how our children are becoming encouragers. We have modelled walking around to gain inspiration from one another’s art work and pointing out the great thing that each child is doing. Today we heard so many encouraging comments and compliments that were unsolicited by us, and were so uplifting to the students.
For closing circle Ms. M had the kids review all their memory verses from the past months. It was great to see their joy and pride in singing all the verses and seeing that they had learned so many!
If I as an earthly parent am filled with joy at these moments, how much more is our father in heaven delighted by the love our children are developing for him!!
