Our online project with Grosse Ile.

Today we had some questions for the Kindergarten kids in Grosse Ile. Below you can watch the actual voicethread and see what our prairie kids wondered about.

Thank you to Grosse Ile Kindergarten!

We got a big surprise last week. Our friends in Quebec sent us a voicethread project about lobster fishing. Our little prairie kids were amazed by their pictures and explanations. I really hope we get time in our next hectic few weeks to comment on their pictures and ask them questions, we had lots of questions about lobster fishing. Take a moment and watch with your child, it is really fasinating how much these little ones know about their main industry in Grosse Ile. Click above to watch the voicethread, you may learn something too!

Our Reading Grannies....

We are so lucky to be within walking distance of our local seniors home. Once a month we walk over with a bag full of books and the Grannies meet us at the door and we settle down in their recreation room and they read stories to our little ones. It is a fantastic experience for both young and old. Today after we read our stories, we sang the song "Bear Hunt" complete with all the actions and then they surprised us with ice cream and cookies. A very good afternoon indeed!
