Ayla's Holiday Story

We have been sharing our stories about our holidays. Ayla brought some photos into Kindergarten and today taught our new teacher Robyn how to make a Manaia Kindergarten movie using PhotoStory3. What a great teacher you were Ayla! Check out Ayla's story about her holidays and come back for more as other children bring in their photos to share their holiday stories with you. Please leave comments, questions, or words of encouragement for our children who love to share their stories with their extended families and the world.



Ayla teaching Robyn how to use PhotoStory3 - what concentration from them both.

Flynn inspires Williams work.


I love this piece of work William, you told me that you had seen Flynn's shark on the Blog and that it inspired you to create "Faline the Deer". You said..."It's just a reindeer Dee!"
Well I think it is a fantastic reindeer. You've used a large piece of cardboard, that must have been quite difficult to cut, and painted it really well. I love the way you got inspired by Flynn's idea and followed through with perseverance to make your own work using your own original idea! It is magic to me when children learn from each other.
