The delight of using the Mimio

Daniel's taniwha

Daniel wrote and narrated this story after deciding to sew a taniwha. He said that he had done some sewing at his old kindergarten ... Papakowhai kindergarten. Daniel rang his Mum and asked her to bring in the cat that he had made previously. Can you see it in the background?

The race is on

Ryan's scooter

Ryan often has clear ideas about what he wants to do ... and this day was no exception, he wanted to make a scooter. After rummaging through the wood he chose the pieces for his project. This is the result of a morning's concentrated work. Search as we might we couldn't find a set of wheels, however Ryan was not deterred. The next day the scooter arrived back at kindergarten for minor repairs. Again Ryan worked with focus and commitment. Mahi pai, good work Ryan.

Team work

There is nothing quite like working together to achieve what you want to achieve.

Special spaces

There is nothing quite as special as finding a small space to play in. In this case Ashley chose to play with her dolls and friends under the light table.
