Back to the Library

I was asked back to be the-mummy-that-helps-at-the-library again today. This time it was much less stressful and involved 4 groups of 6, 3 year olds colouring in pictures of the 3 Little Pigs building the house made of brick.

The question they asked me over and over again was: where is the wolf? (he hadn't arrived yet.) I had to make sure they were holding the pencil correctly and try and get them to colour the different parts of the picture in the right colours. The difference in their levels was very interesting.

At the end of each group the teacher asked me to sing yet another English nursery rhyme... so I did 'Head, shoulders, knees & toes' and all the actions - half of the kids copied the actions and 3 or 4 actually tried to sing the words... very funny.

During the break a 6 yr old from another class came up to me and said 'are you Italian like my papa?' hmm.. next question please.

Supermarket this afternoon - I bought a stollen and some chocolate coins for our school's Christmas bingo prize offering...
