Whilst you read this blog, you really should be listening to this. SB and I have been humming along to this all day [and others I have found] much to Chris’s horror! I think its a bit Pingu like, but it reminds Chris of the smurfs.
Its not cold in the house, as we put on the heating for the first time in Honour of Nic and Ady [and it was really cold on fri!], but SB wanted to make the Igloo from the 120 history projects book. not only craft, but lots of measuring and multiplying in 4′s skills.
We listened to lots of inuit throat singing – and joined in to Chris’s bemusement – whilst building it. A brief run around who the inuit are and a brief run about what lives in the arctic, using her first animal picture atlas. But mostly throat singing – LOL. We have been trying ourselves, and doing interpretative dance [LOLLOLLOLLOL!!!]
SB built a lovely track for her and BB to play with the trains. She also read BB a book - woohoo! – and has done a lot of weighing today in the maths ‘match and sort’. Both children are now sat infront of another wildlife DVD eating popcorn. Unfortunately I can’t get our home grown popcorn to pop, so this is bought corn.
BB has mostly payed with trains, skipped, had books read to hr and done a few jigsaws – oh, also played with playdough and done her ”maths’ [she draws over a preK book of maths that SB started with.] listened to both her version and Terry deary’s bring me back – a lot! and also various u-tube throat singing videos [more LOL]. TBH i never knew much about throat singing, and now feel quite an expert.
