A weekend with Leopard

Last Friday when picking up Aelig from the school, we were handed a basket.

What's inside this basket?

A leopard with his notebook.

This notebook jots down the Leopard's weekend with one of the students from the class. Apparently every student gets to have him for a weekend, and this weekend he gets to be with Aelig. This is definitely a lucky Leopard because he has been to a beach, an aquarium, an amusement park, a swimming pool, a festival for the kids, a birthday party and a village. So, where should we bring him for the weekend?

According to a website the Giant Elephant is the most visited attraction from tourists visiting Nantes. So we decided to bring him there. He got to share a spot with Aelig's favorite toy Tiger in her school bag. Everyone has a blast.

Aelig has a notebook for herself too. The teacher attached a program/ a term for the week so that parents know what they are learning. She did inform us about this Leopard adventure, but I didn't pay attention to it. Ok I'm still adjusting to the school system here. I myself had never gone to Kindergarten so I really don't know what kids do there. I admit there are still plenty to learn...

Side-note:  We couldn't tell the differences between a Leopard, a cheetah and a Jaguar. So while doing this exercise we actually needed to look through Wikipedia on these three animals. After the explanations it is still hard to distinguish them.

  1. Hi Bee Ean,
    I find this is a nice project. Since doudou is such a big part in French kids' life and compare to other kids in Singapore.. a 4 yr old is expected to know how to count from 1 to 40 and do some basic addition/substractions.. I find French kindergarten has much more fun in learning..
