Where is my home?

Last days Bees were discussing the topic of animals` houses.

 Our little Filemon shared with his story about “Own place” (Własny kąt – animation), Green Cat met the mouse in the front of the house… where they all have their real own place then? It was the topic of Bees next discovery.

Our animal spies activities gave us a clue about dogs, who always had their owners on the lead (some people say that ig goes opposite way, but who knows), which means that they have their houses – or maybe: they live in human`s houses.
Few times we saw cats walking on their own, so started to think if they live in humans` houses to or not? It went us to the matter of homeless animals (especially cats) and those who wait for that to be adopted. Our teachers called one of vet in our city who takes care of little kittens in his clinic. Immediately we organized a whole-kindergarten action to gain some nice gifts for them (we will give you the presentation about this soon).

But, going back to animals houses, Bees played a game on interactive whiteboard, matching animals with their houses and discovering new vocabulary .

Then, Bees used an educational card created by teachers to make their individual matching. They called all animals` houses and were really proud of their knew discoveries.

A card we created (for future use if you want it): animals-houses-tdtl

We also do Yoga Cats!

Iceland, thank you for your post which inspired us to try Yoga Cats!
We saw the video you recommended and your pictures doing Yoga exercises, and of course decided to try!

First, we tried to clean our faces and ears like cats do everyday.
We also said “Hello” to the Sun and to the Earth…

Then, on the basis of the video, we put on many poses of Yoga cats. That was very funny, but also tiring. For sure, cats need to be very pliant for that to be able to do all these…

We will certainly continue on Yoga Cats!
