100 Word Challenge for Grown ups – Week 162 : Puff the magic Dragon.


Today’s 100 Word Challenge is about the following photo and what it brings to mind

100 WCGU #162

As a year one teacher I loved to do songs,rhymes and poems. Seeing these 4 bears going for the Teddy Bears Picnic, I thought back to Puff the Magic Dragon. It teaches children the love for animals, life and fantasy. Fantasy is important in a young child’s life. They need to have an opportunity to play. That is why rhymes and songs help. They usually repeat the same thing over and over again in these songs, which helps with vocabulary. To act these songs is also relaxing and calming. Portraying fantasies makes them experience real situations.

        1. Lekker man! 😀 My vriendin gaan Woensdag huistoe. Het gister besoek en sy was besig om n aandete voor te berei in hospitaal onder toesig. Alles het goed verloop. Net haar sig is baie aangetas. Sy sal nie kan bestuur of naaldwerk doen nie(Was haar ekstra inkomste om plekmatjies te verkoop)

            1. Sy bly n bietjie ver van my af. Haar dogter gaan dink ek die 24e terugtrek NZ toe en in begin by haar ma bly. Die bestuur gaan vir haar erg wees omdat sy gewoond was om haar eie goedjies te koop en ook te gaan kuier. Sal maar sien. Die Time bankers moet maar beurte maak om haar te vervoer.
