Deze week kijken we terug naar  alle reizen die we gemaakt hebben de voorbije weken.  We gingen op reis met kikker en egel en vlogen samen met de 8 schijfjes  banaan de wereld rond.

We maken een reiskoffertje en vullen het met onze mooiste herinneringen.

De letter van de week is de  -aa- !

Naar aanleiding van het kinderboekenweekthema `Voor altijd jong` beginnen we volgende week met een nieuw thema `Houden van...`.   We zullen in de klas een familiestamboom maken en praten over onze grootouders.  Kan u enkele leuke familiefoto`s mailen naar c-borger@bisspuxi.com of meegeven met uw kind?  Dank voor uw medewerking hierbij.
