Bonjour tout le monde!

Nous faisons notre chemin à travers les cinq sens ces derniers temps et je dois dire que nous avons été très occupés! Nous sommes passés par le sens de la vue et avons déterminé les expressions du visage et nous avons dessiné avec les yeux fermés. Nous avons découvert le sens du goût avec notre séance cuisine spéciale muffin, puis le sens de l’odorat avec des pochoirs d’épices. Maintenant,nous allons découvrir l’ouie en écoutant les sons que font les dinosaures. Même s’ils ne sont pas réels, ils sont ce que certains scientifiques pensent à quoi ils pourraient ressembler. Ecoutez vous-même.

Hello Everyone!

We’ve been making our way through the five senses lately and I must say that we have been busy! We went through the sense of sight with figuring out people’s facial expressions and coloring with our eyes closed, we went through our sense of taste with our muffin baking session, our sense of smell with the herb and spice stencils and we just did our sense of hearing by listening to dinosaur sounds. Well, they weren’t REAL but they are what some scientists believe that they might sound like. Have a listen yourself.

Bonjour tout le monde!

Nous sommes maintenant à la lettre “E” pour notre atelier d’anglais et nous parlons des œufs. Rappelez-vous, les œufs ne sont pas seulement pour les poulets. Si nous parlons des œufs de canard et, encore plus excitant, de dinosaures! Que diriez-vous de pratiquer un peu l’anglais et un peu de reconnaissance des lettres en même temps?

Je vous souhaite à tous une très heureux vendredi!

Hello Everyone!

We’ve moved on to the letter “E” during our atelier d’anglais and so we’re talking about eggs. Remember, eggs are not just for chickens so we’re talking about duck eggs and (even more exciting) dinosaur eggs! How about practicing a little English and a little letter recognition at the same time?

Wishing you all a very happy Friday!

“Six Little Ducks”

Six little ducks that I once knew,

Fat ones, skinny ones, fair ones too,

But the one little duck with the feather on his back,

He led the others with his quack-quack-quack

Quack-quack-quack   Quack-quack-quack

He led the others with his quack-quack-quack

Down to the river they would go,

Wibble, wobble, wibble, wobble, to and fro,

But the one little duck with the feather on his back,

He led the others with his quack-quack-quack

Quack-quack-quack   Quack-quack-quack

He led the others with his quack-quack-quack

Home from the river they would come,

Wibble, wobble, wibble,wobble, ho-hum-hum,

But the one little duck with the feather on his back,

He led the others with his quack-quack-quack,

Quack-quack-quack   Quack-quack-quack

He led the others with his quack-quack-quack

Six little ducks that I once knew,

Fat ones, skinny ones, fair ones too,

But the one little duck with the feather on his back,

He led the others with his quack-quack-quack

Quack-quack-quack  Quack-quack-quack

He led the others with his quack-quack-quack 

ducks have feathers

draw and cut out your feathers
draw and cut out your feathers
make long cuts all along both sides of your feathers
make long cuts all along both sides of your feathers
Fluff the cuts upwards

Hello Everyone,

I’ve been singing a new song called “Six Little Ducks” with our youngest group of students. There’s been a lot of “quacking” going on and I thought that it might be fun for the little ones to make a feather of their own to use while they sing. Have fun and see you soon!

Bonjour à tous,

Je chante une nouvelle chanson intitulée “Six Little Ducks” (6 petits canards) avec notre plus jeune groupe d’étudiants. Il y a eu beaucoup de “couin-couin” et j’ai pensé que cela pourrait être amusant pour les tout-petits de faire une plume à utiliser pendant qu’ils chantent. Amusez-vous bien et à bientôt.
