Delighted to have Unnur, my colleague from Leikskólinn Stekkjarás in Iceland guest posting for this OPP. Here she shares how the children in her school enjoyed the first big snow fall for this year earlier this week.
It was easy to get everyone out this morning, on the first day of proper snowfall with us this winter, we did get a day in early October but like I said that was just for a day. The
kids came up with a lot of ideas of what to do. Some set up a business and sold some ice cream of course.
|Ice cream shop in the making|
|Some made dens & houses as the snow fell.|
|When there is only one bumboard everyone had to wait & take turns.|
|It was fun riding down the hill with a teacher!|
|Making a snowhouse & discovering we could draw on the windows with the snow thrown at it!|
I was delighted to see so many new blogs linking up in the last OPP & I hope they continue to join in over the next few weeks too.
My favourite post was from How Wee Learn on using nature to help develop language. As anyone who spends time with young children soon learns, if you give them a context for new words they will grasp them much quicker & be able to use them in other scenarios too.
