Fairy Tale Friday
Winston's kindergarten teacher has been doing an activity each week on Friday called Fairy Tale Friday. She had us parents each sign up for a few time slots and then gave us a fairy tale to present to the class. We have 30 minutes to read the fairy tale and do an activity of our choosing. I signed up for three of them.
The first one I was given was The Three Billy Goats Gruff; second was The Gingerbread Man; and the last one - that I did today - was Henny Penny. It's been fun to spend time in his class and get to know the kids a little better.
My favorite one was The Gingerbread Man which we did right before Christmas so it was fun for the kids to talk about making cookies. I had them make a gingerbread boy ornament with cardstock paper and stickers - they turned out so cute!
This is a picture of our Henny Penny activity - we made chickens with a small paper plate with foam rubber beaks and legs, googley eyes and feathers that they glued on. My sample is on the right and Winston's chicken is on the left. I'm kind of sad that it's my last one and wish I had signed up for one more.
"How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and the strong because at some point in your life, you will have been all of these."
“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children...to leave the world a better place...to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
