This morning Eliza's Oma, Rochelle came to play and sing at Kindy. She used to be on National Radio on a programme called Grandpa's Place which was on the air in the mornings.
Rochelle came with her guitar and we loved listening to her songs and singing along with her. She comes from Wellington and we hope she will visit us again soon.
We sang Skinnamarinky dinky dink, How much is that doggie in the window and others as well
Jim talked about his work and passed some pieces around for the children to feel and hold. He said his work takes a very long time to make. His work is often made up of many smaller pieces. He put some pieces into the middle of the floor and the children drew them.

So many learning opportunities in this activity - having to be prepared to accept other children's ideas and act them out, as well as having your ideas implemented as well.
The 'audience' always enjoy the shows but I have a sneaking suspicion that the creators, who are the actors as well, enjoy them the most!
Together they created movements and then graphically presented their movement on paper which Christina cut out and laminated. Now we can change the order of the movements each time we do the dance.
NB It's very vigorous dancing!
