Teddy colouring, freehand for 4 year olds.
Thursday 25 February 2021
Thea enjoys writing and reading all the way from Hong Kong. We were reading up The Tree by Ruskin Bond. I certainly adore the descriptive parts and the subtle use of adjectives which adds so much of flamboyance while explaining the growth of a tree, its branches, a climber and the natural habitants. It is indeed a pleasure to learn along with a student.
We were doing Gulliver Travels. Literature for the 10 year olds is not easy but we actually cracked up at the scene wherein Gulliver sprays urine to bust a rising flame in the Queens abode. Oh My, ripples of laughter. The knowledge that the Queen was miffed is an understatement.
