Now first there was this mod roc'd balloon ~ at work
which became this turnip, though it does look like an oversized raddish really!
Our 'The Enormous Turnip' storysack had gone missing, though it never did have a big turnip in it, so I decided to remake it for work.
A teacher from one of the special schools had wanted to use the story and had wanted the book itself recreated differently, to how I normally make them.
So after some discussion, I made up a Velcro A3 board and some on/off characters to use on the board.
I also made up a zig zaggy board book, with the same characters, so the teacher could read the story from the back, whilst showing the kids the characters on the front pages - if you understand what I mean?
I made up laminated word cards too for use with other children that will use the storysack later in time. Plus I put in various copies of the commercial book for children whose sight is reasonable.
I also made up a tactile book to include in our Stone Age topic box, this is the style I generally am asked to make up.
I bought one of those long tubes for the cats to play in...
So Harvey took himself off to hide ..
Today was a joyful day with both Evie AND Jack to look after, on the same day - suffice to say I am on my third glass of wine now they have gone home!
Each adores the other, devoted cousins both. He is enthralled that she understands him and she simply idolises him!
Okay I will read to you Evie ...
just love the way she tucked her legs under his lol
Are you sure that's what it says Jack?
Then ... she was determined his pants went on this way ... lol
