Today my little readers amazed me with how well they understood and remembered the entire story. They walked me through from the beginning to the end naming all the characters and remembering so many details! The two other Aunties assisting kept on say "Wow! Really good!", "I can't believe they remembered all that!"
I have to admit I questioned myself last night...should I have read the entire story on the first day? This morning the children demonstrated that they are just as awesome as I expected! They LOVE being read to and even when they seem to be distracted they are listening to every word!
After my short quiz I read chapter 3 to the children as this was the chapter in which we met the Cheshire Cat! After the reading the children did learning exercises which varied from colouring the Cheshire Cat to answering some simple multiple choice questions.
During our Crafty Me session we did a craft inspired by Alice's words " ...I've seen a cat without a grin but never a grin without a cat!" So we set out to make a grin without a cat!
Take a look!
Tomorrow we focus on the Queen of Hearts and the activities in her garden and at the trial.
