Frogs

My grade 3 student just finished a unit on the wonderful 'Frog' stories by Max Velthuijs. We made some 'hungry frogs'.
 
 
It is his favourite spot!
 
Cows checking out the better looking grass on the other side of the fence!

Week 2

We had a busy morning today with Japanese to start, making Cats for the Owl and the Pussycat, finishing our Italian work on face words and completing comprehension tasks using a Tarzan DVD. The bushfire prevention people will start work this week. I'm a bit annoyed at their plans which have of course changed without any consultation but not much I can do!
Today I will also post my A Monster Calls unit before the movie release here in Australia.
