Learning in the spirit of wonder and joy

Month: November 2020


I want to share some of the children’s activities that were inspired by children’s books.  During one of our zoom circle times, we did the “Go Away Green Monster” story, written by  Ed Emberley .  I encouraged the children to create their own versions of green monster.  This is Parker’s green monster.

During our outdoor exploration session, we read “The Leaf Man” by Lois Ehlert.   After we read the story, the children then walked around the park to find their favourite leaves and other materials to create their own versions of leaf man/animal or whatever they want to create with the leaves.  Here are some of the leaf  creations.

First, we collected the materials


The we made our creations

Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day is the day we pause to remember the brave soldiers who fought for our country.  That date and time mark the moment that World War I ended.  It’s also important not to forget the sacrifice our Armed Forces have made and continue to make for us.  There are many ways we can honour the.  Some of the simplest way to teach young children about the meaning of remembrance day are to wear a poppy, do a poppy craft.
