Author inspires JK/SK students

Author and Illustrator Josephine Vaccaro-Chang shared her wonderful story, “We Are Colourful Friends”, with our Kindergarten class.  The students truly enjoyed the presentation as they had the opportunity to re-enact the story through the use of colourful puppets prepared by Josephine herself.  This enriching experience motivated the students in our class to create their very own storybooks and puppets.  Thank you, Josephine, for inspiring our students!!  We look forward to future workshops with you!!

Thank you to everyone that participated in our draw at The Feast of Ages on July 31st, 2016 in Uxbridge.   Congratulations to Elayne Bassett, Elisabeth Chomko & Lindsay Fung!  You won an interactive workshop for a JK/SK class or grade 1 class.  The workshop includes reading the book titled, “We Are Colourful Friends” using hand-held puppets, acting out the pages of the book and creating a collage.  As a follow-up activity, children will receive colouring sheets.

The class will be visited by Ruby.  A six foot tall red flamingo.  She has a tiara, necklace and fancy high heels just like the character in the book.

Needed: Water Bottle Caps

Hi! As many of you know I have challenged myself this year to make sculptures of the 11 animals in my book. My goal is to make one sculpture a month. This month I am working on the fish and need about 200 more water bottle caps to finish the scales. If you have any extra water bottle caps please bring them to the Connecting the Community meeting on Tues., June 7th. Thanks!IMG_7327
