15.02.21 Ugly duckling and swans - grow up 長(长) fly 飛(飞) with famous painter Lou Shibai 婁師白

Updated: Mar 6, 2021

Today we are doing a story telling today of the ugly ducklings with my paper swan and ducky props made by grandparents :) (my little monster painted them and made some apparently fish looking food for them)

We told the story and watched some videos of ducks and swans to see and paid attention to the feed, neck and how mummy swan carried the cute grey babies!

Then we learnt how our ancestors wrote "grow up" 長(长) and "fly" 飛(飞)

We looked at how the famous Chinese artist Lou Shibai 婁師白 who is the student of Qi Baishi, painted the ducks. He is the "duck specialist" in Chinese paintings.

Then we created our favourite moment of the story and try to create our own for the swan after she got back.
