CREATIVITY, CREATIVITY, CREATIVITY
Today we had two fantastic young people and the marvellous adults that accompanied them. The music trolley somehow found its way into the room and as we were thinking about our favourite books, we got the idea to create our own musical story based on the book 'What the ladybird heard'. As an extra bonus we had some record and playback buttons so we could make noises of any animals or sounds we wanted and then play them back by pressing the buttons. We all chose our preferred instruments and the cacophony began.
LET'S CREATE ANOTHER STORY
With the creative juices flowing, we jumped right into storytelling and created some words around the themes of Animals, Objects, Actions and Emotions to use as building blocks for our story. Thus THE GREAT ZEBRA RESCUE was born ...
The goat went over to the stripey animal and introduced itself, keeping up the long tradition of goats being one of the more friendly and helpful of all the mountain dwelling animals ... "Let me guess - you're lost, aren't you". The stripey animal looked happy that someone else was here in the mountains too. 'I'm a Zebra' said the stripey animal cheerily, 'Can you help me get home ... I'm lost.' The goat smiled 'Of course I can, follow me' and the the goat led the Zebra down from the mountains and back onto the plains until they reached the Zebra's bungalow. 'Would you like a cup of lemonade?' offered the Zebra?
