My name is Maria Melenchuk. I am a student at the College of Education, University of Saskatchewan. I have been lucky to get my student teaching field experience with your children at Mrs. Tebay’s class. I truly enjoy every minute I spend with them on Wednesdays.
Today we practiced storytelling. I told children a story called How the Moon Got Into the Sky which comes from the West Coast First Nations people. If you would like to enjoy the story as we did, you can challenge your young storytellers to retell it at home. Here is a suggestion: when you see the moon tonight, tell your child that you have been wondering for a long time how the moon got in the sky. Let your child boast and share the story he/she learnt at school today!
