Well this months animal just had to be the crab ! And we were able to study this little sea living fella in depth as we found a crab (shell...or exoskeleton) on the beach in Skerries as well as a claw from a bigger crab ! While researching her facts Aideen was fascinated to find out that a crabs teeth are in its stomach ! And of course Daisy had to get into the action and paint her own crab...Aideen let her pin it to her project and now it hangs on the kitchen door (we are SO running out of wallspace)...everytime she passes it Daisy points out her crab to anyone even the dog, shes very proud ! Aideen got an "A" for this she really did her stuff...even made paper seaweed behind the crab !
Also this week saw Aideen read the first of her 5 books for Noras Monthly book club , Noras kids 9Sadhbh and Caoimhe) and Aideen have to read 5 books (this months theme is legends and fairies) and do 5 book reports then at the end of the month Nora gives them a prize !!! Aideens also busy reading for her MS readathon ! Daisy is gone paint mad on us, she barely eats breakfast before the paints have to come out ! Im running out of thing for her to paint ! She had to paint loo rools this morning :o) and I picked up a great bargain today in the bookshop , €3 sees Daisy playing with magnetic letters on the bottome door of the fridge...keeps little hands and minds busy while parents cook dinner ! Have a lovley weekend everyone and hope everyone had a great first week back at school !
