Atelier Noël


When Nicki drops his white mitten in the snow, he goes on without realizing that it is missing. One by one, woodland animals find the mitten and crawl in; first a curious mole, then a rabbit, a badger and others, each one larger than the last. Finally, a big brown bear is followed in by a tiny brown mouse, and what happens next makes a wonderfully funny climax. As the story of the animals in the mitten unfolds, the reader can see Nicki in the borders of each page, walking through the woods unaware of what is going on. Once again Jan Brett has created a dramatic and beautiful picture book in her distinctive style. She brings the animals to life with warmth and humor, and her illustrations are full of visual delights and details faithful to the Ukrainian tradition, from which the story comes.

Stage de vacances

Learning through Literature
14 to 17 February 2011
10h -12h / for 8 to 11 year old children

Tusk Tusk by David Mckee is an excellent book to introduce racism, prejudice and tolerance to children. It is a story about a time when elephants came in two colours: black or white. They loved all other creatures - but each set wanted to exterminate the elephants that were not the same as themselves. Peace-loving elephants ran and hid in the deepest jungle, and battle commenced. The war-mongers succeeded in annihilating each other. For a long time it seemed that there were no elephants in the world at all, not of any colour. But then the descendants of the peace-loving ones emerged from the jungle, who were now all grey.

Children singing, dancing and doing handcraft activities

This time the theme of our workshop revolves around Carnival & Pancakes. Children are going to sing a wonderful carnival song (The Music Box, Longman), not without a mask, of course! Another song - Pancake Hat - will lead us is a handcraft activity of making hats. And why a pancake hat? - Cat sat down and squashed it flat, Now I call it my pancake hat! I'm sure kids are going to have lot of fun squashing theirs!

Children learning through a story

The barnyard rooster crows and Jack wakes up -- hungry, of course! What does he want for breakfast? A big pancake! The book Pancakes, pancakes! by Eric Carle is an excellent way to learn all the ingredients for cooking a pancake.

Children cooking

And what would be all this talking about pancakes without making some? On the last day of workshop you find us in the kitchen – tossing yummy pancakes for everyone!

The Mixed-up Chameleon by Eric Carle

The chameleon's life was not very exciting until the day it discovered it could change its color, shape and size, too! When it saw the wonderful animals in the zoo, it immediately wanted to be like them — and ended up like all of them at once — with hilarious results!
