Today for our Dutch adventure we drew around Hebe and cut her out! Why you ask? well we have learned the Dutch version of the song Head,shoulders,knees and toes! We decided that just learning the song wasnt enough so we made a flat Hebe and labeled her with the dutch body parts,we also wrote the English words on the back of each label so we could learn them in English too! We think it looks awsome!Today for our Dutch adventure we drew around Hebe and cut her out! Why you ask? well we have learned the Dutch version of the song Head,shoulders,knees and toes!
