Today we took part in our second Aistear session – we have been reading the story ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’ so today our Aistear was based on the shoe shop. 🙂
We dressed up and played the part of the customer and the shopkeeper at the role play station; practised our letter formation and drew a picture of a shoe at the writing station; designed our very own shoe at the art station; and built a shoe shop out of blocks at the construction station. We were very busy and had lots of fun! Here are a few pictures of us with our beautiful new shoes!!
