Learning about the weather / Ik leer over het weer

on Tue, 06/03/2012 - 07:48

We are getting close to a seasonal change! Which role is the weather playing in this all? How can we discover more about the weather in a fun way? Me and my blogging playmates (scroll down to know who!) bring you some weather themed crafts or playideas. Please visit our bloghop and link up yours too!

I show you how to make a weather wheel and sing you the special rainbowsong with your preschoolers!

Nu de lente dichterbij komt, praten we veel over het weer hier thuis en met de kleuters op school. Schijnt de zon vaker in de winter of de lente, vragen we ons af.

Daarom maakten we een weer wiel zodat we elke dag kunnen bijhouden wat het weer is. En als je het leuk vind om te zingen, vergeet dan niet te klikken op de video om mijn speciaal regenboogliedje te horen!

I miss you - Speaking about death to children

on Sat, 21/01/2012 - 21:44

This is a post that I have been planning to write for a long time, but when I sit down to work on it, I can’t find the right words. I ask myself why it’s so difficult to write about death? Probably because it’s a topic that I want to avoid...

During my childhood I got the thought that we turn into ghosts or zombie’s after death. [Michael Jackson’s Thriller didn’t do me any good]

So my innerchild was hiding in her darkest place when Chanel started to be interested in death. She is six now and is becoming more conscious about life every day. It’s like I see her waking up from her own world she was living in until now.
