Our core book this week is 'Giraffe's Can't Dance' by Giles Andreae.
Our 'Toilet Paper Challenge' was a triumph!
Now it is time to begin preparing our next venture 'The Dance Challenge'.
We have been on such a journey together, so I want to celebrate all of us!
So... parents, carers, brothers, sisters, grandparents, pets and whoever else is with you are all invited to get involved!
Please, send a video clip of you all showing off your best dance moves! Your video must end by everyone stopping and pointing to the left. This will pass it on.
I would love as many of you to be in the video as we can, however, don't feel pressured, I am more than happy if it's just your child dancing. The most important thing is that we have fun!
*Fancy dress is more than appropriate.
Core Book ideas:
1. Learn a dance routine. You can make them up yourself or follow one online.
2. Perform your dance routine and make a music video. Which song will you dance to?
3. Research Africa on Google Earth, what did you find? Desert, waterfalls, villages, cities, rivers, beaches...
4. Make a shopping list of items that will be needed for the Jungle Dance.
5. Look at photos of real giraffes to draw your own illustrations? Think carefully about the shapes and try to draw the body with one outline.
6. Design and make decorations for your own jungle dance party at the end of the week! This can help you practise your cutting skills.
7. Think about what you would say to Gerald to make him feel better when sad? try some role play.
8. Find some rhyming words in the story. Have a game of rhyming ping pong. One partner begins with a word "dog" you have to each bounce back a rhyming word.
dog-log-frog-fog-bog (you can make up funny words too that rhyme)
9. Giraffes are very tall! Taller than you! Explore some measuring around the house. Use some small lego bricks or any other uniform objects (hands, cubes, pencils) and measure alongside objects around the house.
10. Find at least three objects and order them in order of height/length.
