School stories: Art and a mouse


Before School Care had an artist in the form of an always busy(mischievous) six year old boy. He was so into building the octopus and shark that he didn’t want to pack up to go to his classroom.

OCTOPUS
SHARK

The afternoon I had a chat with one of the teachers. I asked her about the behavior of two girls from her class. After the discussion the teacher told me that she wanted to release a tiny field mouse that she caught in her classroom that morning. It was drizzling outside and she went just around the corner of her classroom, into some foliage. She opened the box and the mouse jumped out. Ran along the wall; sniffed at the corner; crossed the footpath; straight onto the veranda and into another classroom! We stood giggling because the teacher in that classroom is afraid of mice.

This morning the teacher came to before school classroom. She told me that she caught the mouse in a trap last night and set it free far away from the classroom. We couldn’t help laughing and giving a sigh of relieve for the catch again.

  1. How I would love to play with that octopus and shark. It’s just beautiful! It looks like that little boy had lots of fun. 😀

    Clearly they didn’t have me or Russel there. hahaha! We would have caught that mouse quickly, but with no promise that it would be still alive, so maybe it’s better that way. 😀
