Well, we thought LAST week was short… It had nothing on this week! With only one day of school this week we had a lot going on.
Miss Michelle from Oak Knoll came to visit. She talked about how different animals stay warm in the winter. We talked about fur, feathers, and migration…OH MY! The students also had the chance to pet a Madagascar screeching cockroach. Some pet it, and others were brave and sat back to watch.
The snow on the playground was fun, and the kids stayed bundled and warm. Thank you for sending in the necessary attire.
As a class we read The Mitten By Jan Brett. How many of our outdoor winter friends can fit into a mitten knit by Nikki’s Baba? Many more than we all thought!
