Literacy in Junior Primary is an interactive experience
Our kids in Junior Primary had an “amoozing” week as they completed their in-depth exploration of the book “If You Give A Moose A Muffin”, by making their very own muffins for their snack.
They used their hands and eyes to grate the carrots and mix ingredients carefully. They tasted some of the carrots and blueberries before adding the rest to the mix, and they enjoyed smelling the aroma of the muffins as they baked.
The baking project was the culmination of a week of reading and re-reading the story and then using their imaginations to illustrate and write their own version of the story. They made some observational drawings of a moose, practiced writing the word “moose” and compared this special creature with other Canadian animals that don’t hibernate through the winter.
