Do you know how easy it can be to create a pretend microphone for your child to use? Once your microphone is created, the possibilities are endless. We've been having so much fun!
We just survived Hurricane Matthew! Here in central Florida we made it through the storm okay, but we spent a lot of time watching the news and the weather reports. For days!
We got to watch the in-studio news reporters comment to the on-location reporters and then watch those reporters deal with the craziness of the storm (we watched one lady almost get blown away; she needed to brace herself up against a wall! She earned her paycheck that day!)
This has inspired my children do some reporting of their own. They started off using a chess piece and report all over the house about what was happening. This morphed into some great imaginative play: reporting live from Pluto (our favorite dwarf planet).
