'ch' window display.
This was a fun, short project. The girls did some good work, Elodie especially, who is more interested in words than Lucia is. Elodie made a lovely little 'ch' word book as well as all the other bits and pieces shown below.
Dominique was evidently perplexed when her USA themed horses and wagon, which she had played with on a daily basis on the window sill display during the previous project, were replaced with chalk, chickens, chess pieces and a miniature chest of drawers, but she played with it all the same :)

Today Elodie helped me to rake up the leaves from our fig tree and sweep the tiles by the front door, while Lucia ran around madly with the dog.
Gymnastics at 2.15 for an hour and another quick run with the dog before it gets dark. Lucia is sad when the sun sets but is coming round to the idea that we need to let the sun go to Australia to help their flowers grow :)
Elodie has some new 'ch' flashcards which she is learning. I also gave her the task of spelling out the words with these plastic letters.
New 'ch' words which we talked about today were cheetah, Chile, China, Chad, chimpanzee, chipmunk and chestnut. They are looking forward to the chocolate aspect of 'ch' which I have promised them tomorrow!

Today was the first day of our new project - the sound 'ch'.
I set up the display last night with various pictures or objects beginning with 'ch' including: chimney, chairs, cherries, chips, cheese, chalk, chest of drawers, chickens, children and chess.
My online shop arrived and the girls had a cherry smoothie while they worked. Lucia played with the chess board and then we made...
