Expressing through song

Simone's singing of a Barbie tune prompted us to write a song.  We borrowed the a line from Simone's song to start us of. The topic chosen was dreams and what each of us dream about.  Here is our song:

Whenever we dream, we dream the same dream.
We dream about bunny and how soft he is. (Grace)
We dream about zebra and his stripes. (Esme)
We dream about Bambi and his cute nose and how he soft he is. (Simone)
We dream about the forest and the boat we play on. (Roy)
We dream about horses and stuffies. (Alfie)
We dream about princesses. (Sofia)
We dream about happy things to make us smile. (Deb)

Say Hello

Verdi: Catapults

Verdi, a young python, does not want to change.  The last thing he wants his to turn from his beautiful yellow to boring green. Verdi tries to change his colour back to yellow by scrubbing his skin and then covering it with mud. Nothing works.  He notices that the sky is bright yellow just like he used to be. Verdi launches himself from the treetops certain that his flight will change him back to yellow.



How did Verdi fly through the air? What a great opportunity to learn about catapults. Elastics and popsicle sticks were the only materials need to build a catapult.  First the children, used plastic snakes to sail through the area.  It was delightful to hear the excitement and the laughter as the children made  their "Verdi" fly.




I asked the children which would travel farther; a plastic snake or a pompom.  Most of the children though the heavier item, the snake, would travel a further distance.  The children were amazed at how far and how high a pompom could move.
