Rainbow Fish bites again ....

One of the things that really inspires me is my brilliant job, its cool I get to play all day as an special needs teaching assistant.  I have started to  love doing crafts , this is really important in promoting fine motor skills in children. Also it is an important catalyst for their writing skills, especially in boys who are notorious for not like writing. For boys if you can tailor the activity or story right then it will grip them and they will be away writing or crafting or indeed both.

Why not craft and make up stories with your children here are a few that I down and ones that can lend themselves to any story.

And of course you can't forget "Olivia " the bozz eyed Octopus...

sssh Olivia is really really shy... This was my attempt at creating a magical aquarium / island in my classroom where I work. The children love to read their stories in this little aquarium den. There are fish glued on to the blue film which is the water of the aquarium.

This is Sharky the shark . Next we have a little weeny Octopus she is Olivia's sister .

I think this lovely lot would have a great time in the sea : don't you? . So please get crafting and see what idea's you can come up with .
