2012 was truly great because I've kept this blog running and I got engaged!!!!
A special shout to Y.H. who found me on my blogger and we had the honour of being acquainted. She recently finished Langara College (just like me!) Sometimes I really think about the days in school for Early Childhood Education. There are really some things you can't just learn in books. It's about the hands-on experience. It truly is. I'm actually very thankful to be working in my dream career. I am thankful to work with the little ones who truly made my 2012 an awesome one.
Well, I guess it's time for me to show you my first felt story I've ever created. I remember rushing through it because I had a bunch of other papers to finish. Need I remind you, it was my first attempt and it wasn't my best effort.
The story is called, "The Napping House" By Audrey Wood. I believe it's a book that's been on the shelves for quite a while. What intrigued me was the repetition and simplicity. Furthermore, it was a great story to control the volume of the crowd. With a quiet tone and some whispers, the children really get into it. I made two sets. One set with everyone sleeping. The other set is to have everything fly in the air. I wanted to really make this felt story "POP".
Characters in the story: Granny, Child, Dog, Cat, Mouse, Flea
...in a cozy bed where everyone is sleeping.
I think that's what I need right now! With all my family in a craze for wedding planning, this house really needs a sleep!
