Nature Play On Vancouver Island

Nature Kindergarten On Vancouver Island


This week's story was Mushroom In The Rain. Much like The Mitten by Jan Brett, the animals grow in size as they escape the weather. The new home grows as each larger animal is added. I had to be inventive as I did not have an expanding mushroom (who does???) but loved the creative use of our tunnels from the block centre.

I have been using this green bath mat as my storytelling mat which has worked wonderfully.

Later we retold the story using a blanket and the children took turns hiding under the mushroom!! These beautiful felt animals were made by Char Waters, a parent at our school. If you don't have felt animals you could use your rubber animals, pictures and of course substitute different animals such as an owl, deer or squirrel to mirror your local forest or seashore.
