Bookworm Preschool is officially our first Twisted Strands™ submission from Canada! We have a couple of students that went to Canada over the summer to visit family, so they were particularly excited to receive your envelope.
The children at Bookworm Preschool sent us all sorts of lovely items and a letter.
The letter told our students that the maple leaf is on the Canadian flag so they included a real Canadian maple leaf that they had laminated for us to hang on our tree! They were also able to find a ribbon that has maple leaves printed on it. Neat!! Last but not least, they are currently studying spiders and they let us know that spiders have 8 legs and 8 eyes! They made some spiders for us to hang on Twisted Strands. The spiders bodies are shaped like the number 8.
The children at Bookworm Preschool didn’t know it, but we have also been making spider projects lately! Our kids were excited to see a new way to make spiders. We have a bucket FULL of plastic spiders that we’ve been using in our play dough and hiding around the classroom. SPOOKY! Our kids would like to know if children in Canada celebrate Halloween like we do?
Thank you so much for sharing such wonderful items with us for our Twisted Strands™ Project. We appreciate all of your hard work.
Bookworm Preschool, watch your mailbox! We are sending you a letter and a Certificate of Participation on Monday!
To date, we have received Twisted Strands™ submissions from the United States (4), the United Kingdom (2), Australia (1) and Canada (1). We’ve been seeing hits on our blog from other countries such as Oman, Azerbaijan, Turkey, Vietnam, Brazil and India so we are hoping to receive some submissions from other countries soon!
We are now connected to each other through this project! “We are ALL connected.”
