We saw Miss Wetzel, Mr. Sadowski, Ms. Tracee, B.C.’s dad, R.T.’s mom, Mrs. Rataj, K.W.’s mom, and H.D.’s grammy.


Today we were learning about nature and numbers. We were trying to add little numbers to big numbers. Mr. Sadowski told us to put the higher number in our heads and the small number on our fingers. Then we added the numbers. On our poster we learned about the numbers that we see in nature: 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, and 13.

In sit spots, some of us were sorting leaves into piles. Others were playing with sticks and pretending they were different things. K.W. was looking at a log because she noticed that the top part had been cut. E.O. was looking around.

At play time, we were playing on the zip line. B.C.’s dad helped us get on. It was fast and high but if you hold on to the handle it was okay. We felt really good and wanted to go again. A lot of people were enjoying the zip line. Others were playing with dead trees and pulling the bark off. Some of us were trying to build different houses because the old ones were broken.

We had popcorn for snack. It was delicious! We had to make a few batches.

In Miss Wetzel’s station, we grabbed different words. We got to match up our words based on similarities. If we had two letters in a word, they matched. Or if there was an ‘n’ at the end of the words, they made a match. Also if two words have one of the same letter in them, they would match. We also looked for rhymes. We practiced reading the words too.

In Mr. Sadowski’s station we were looking for fiddleheads. We were looking to see where they grow. We were also going on a walk up the hill and learning more about adding bigger and smaller numbers together.

It was 70 degrees today. It was a super good day!
