Exploring Fairy Tales

This week, the Giraffes have spent a lot of time gearing up for the Fairy Tale Wax Museum, which will be held on Friday, April 7th from 9:00-9:45 for families. We have loved our latest read-aloud book The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell, and on Monday we created our Land of Stories map! 

We also planted our beanstalks, which will hopefully begin sprouting up to the giant's castle in the clouds soon :)

We've also begun to make our character portraits for the Wax Museum. This year, we are coloring our posters rather than painting them, and they have been turning out wonderfully! The Giraffes are doing a great job taking their time and putting in their best effort when it comes to creating their portraits. 

We have also, of course, been reading lots and LOTS of fairy tales! After familiarizing ourselves with these stories, we've begun working on our storytelling skills to tell these tales in our own words. We practiced telling these stories in selfie videos on Friday that we could re-watch, and we will record a final video to add to our Readbox, which will be on display during the wax museum.

We will continue preparing for our big day in the weeks ahead--the Wax Museum will be here before we know it!
