Deze week tellen we vol spanning af naar de komst van de Sint! We maken alles in gereedheid om onze schoen te zetten en halen ons mooiste handschrift boven om een passend rijm te schrijven. De Sint mag dit jaar ook wel es zelf in de bloemetjes gezet worden op zijn verjaardag. Samen denken we na over een geschikt kadootje en ontwerpen we een Sintwaardige wenskaart! Op maandag 30 november zetten we onze schoen in de Nederlandse klas dus breng die dag een extra schoen mee!
De letter van de week is de – ie- van Piet. Kan jij woorden vinden die rijmen op ie?
