For our June 24th in-service we all headed to the Forks for the day. Here's some pictures from the "G2 Crew" having fun enjoying a walk across the beautiful Provencher Bridge, exploring the old St. B cathedral, and seeing Louis Riel's memorial site. Before we headed to the cathedral I brought the Crew to a secret spot on the river path with a baffling occurrence; When you stand in this little square, it sounds like you're speaking into a microphone! Take one step outside of this spot and the effect is gone! It's a little secret that most people don't know about, and now your kids are in on it ;)
What a great way to spend a Monday!
We have been having alot of fun outdoors. For my activities I had freezer paint popsicles and for my other activity we were blowing bubbles. For the popsicle painting I froze paint in popsicle trays and when we took them outside we had to let them unthaw for a minute and then we painted some very beautiful pictures. For my other activity I did some bubble blowing. We had different sizes of bubble blowers and we got some very big bubbles. These activities the children really enjoyed. -Vera
Over the last three weeks every Tuesday morning, some of the children joined us outside and enjoyed making yarn pompoms with their fingers. They were interested to make also tassels by first wrapping yarn around cardboard. They also had an opportunity to use two popsicle sticks in making God,s eyes.
Each time we had yarn club, children could make two or three crafts and they would always ask me to bring the yarn outside.
Look and see on those photos, how they were motivated to do their artwork.
A mud puddle is more than just a mud puddle to the Dawn & Dusk kids. - it's a raging river they need to cross. It's a mysterious body of water hiding sea creatures. It's an obstacle course. And above all, it's a daring opportunity to exercise our bravery and skills. And should we fall? Well, the muck can be washed out, but these memories will last for years.
Construction season has begun and there is no better place to see projects on the go. A recent surge in building towers has swept over the building and construction area. A mix of building materials and marked safe zones allow for creativity to grow higher and higher. Once the structures are complete, they come tumbling down with as much excitement as it took to build them. We can't wait for our architects to design more additions to the skyline of Dawn and Dusk city.
Dodgeball club is wrapping up and we've had a lot of fun. We've ducked and dodged through a variety of games such as terminator and elimination dodgeball. The most requested to start each club day was of course pin dodgball depicted here in the recent photos. This photo set also includes a new variation of an old game of British Bulldog where instead of tagging a person, you throw dodgeballs to tag them out. Dodgeball may be going away for awhile to make room for another gym club but it will be back so stay alert because you'll want to see it coming.
Movie making club is coming to an end. The children have been asking everyday to finish their movies. Wednesday's is our day to make the movies. Last week we took the club outside. We had a few trial and error periods outside. For example, paper flying away, props falling over and so on. We weathered through the strong winds and made it through. I am hoping to be able to post some of their movies on the website within the next few weeks. Stay tuned!
On Wednesday May 22, 2019 in Building and Construction we had a lot of play happening such as lego, magnetic blocks and foam tiles. With the lego the children were building spaceships, on the second picture he was playing house and on the last picture she was building a house to sleep in. The children seem to be enjoy their play and being creators. -Charlyne
