The saga about the magic egg

Four children in Lundur have been making a saga about cats.

First they sat down and named all the cats and talked about what they would do in the saga.

In the saga shows how the childrens knowledge come alive. We have been working with the word “bounce” in text talk and their knowledge of the book “the green cat saga” also shows in the saga about the magic egg.

What would you say, little cat?

Here we are – Bees are all back in a topic of fabulous Cats!

Bees recalled a matter of cats language. They listed some reasons cats talk by collecting possible meaning of “meow”. Here is the mind map of children ideas:

What do you think about that? Would you add something to this list?

Does meow differ from meow?

Bees are still on the way to understand the meaning of MEOW.

One of the point children decided to check is the possibility of understanding the cat. Is there any difference between “meow” and “meow”? Can we recognize this difference? Are we able to understand the meaning?

We used an application on tablet which showed us a variety of sounds cats give in their cats` life. Children listened the sounds after touching the digits (we chose eight sounds), and then – discussed their possible meaning.  To manage this task children tried to imagine the cat in the situation probably linked with the sound. Of course – teachers made notes of what kids thought about, to save ideas for future use.

Children tried to act some of sounds . They pretended to be cats or humans (behaving well or bad with animals), depending on the sound. Children made the connection with sounds by pulling the cat`s tail, stroking the fur, exposing claws or showing cat`s teeth.

Finally children discovered that it is possible to guess cat`s feelings on the basis of the sound it utters. Is it then possible to guess it on the basis of cats` appearance? Is there any cats` body language? We will check it out!
