The book we chose for Poppins Book Nook Folktales theme was The Rainbow Serpent. We had a little trouble trying to find a book that fit the Folktale theme, so we first looked up what a folk tale was.
Folk Tale: noun
a tale or legend originating and traditional among a people or folk, especially one forming part of the oral tradition of the common people.
From the modelling clay snake, they went on to make rainbows with the modelling clay. They made a pale snake with a matching rainbow and then a brightly coloured snake and rainbow. You can find some more great activities at Australian Folktales.
I hope you enjoyed seeing our activities for this month and would love to see what you have been up to!
