Mrs. Teachout and her baby came today. When you talk to babies with words that they don’t know, they start to learn them and then use the words later on. Miss Wetzel, Mr. Sadowski, and Mrs. McPherson were here today. B.C.’s dad and H.D.’s mom were also here.
In the morning, we were learning about Antarctica, the Arctic, and the Tropics. When it is winter in the Arctic and in Antarctica there is not much sun. It is hard to tell when it is day and night. We were also reading a book about animals and how they sometimes either hibernate or go out and hunt in the winter.
We brought black paper outside with us and we wanted to see if there were six lacy points on the snowflakes.
Our trip up the hill was very slippery. It was hard to get up. Some of us fell in different places.
During play time, K.W. was making a slide and sledding down. Some of us were adding more sticks to a fort that was already in the forest.
For snack we had popcorn with cheese made in Vermont. We made the popcorn in a kettle. There was oil and there were kernals and we could see them popping. There was no electricity outside so we couldn’t use a microwave and instead used the fire.
Leaving the forest was a little different than other times. We hiked down the road instead of the forest trail. The road was a little less slippery than the forest trail.
At the end of the day, we were looking at things that were very old that have been used in the snow. There were snowshoes, a nut cracker penguin skiier, a sleigh that we could ride on, and sleigh bells.
It was 25 degrees today. It was an extraordinary day!
