The day that...
we had pumpkin cookies and hot cocoa.
We played a game about hibernating where we had to do all parts of the season. One was scurrying around, one was hibernating, one was migrating, and one was adapting. Adapting is when you change yourself so that you can hang around though the winter.
Jumping mouse was stuck in the pretend "toilet". He just sat there and he got stuck. Northern Shrike was helping him out. Newt was playing too. They were playing mom and dad.
We were having hot cocoa and we had marshmallows in it. We had apples too. We had to earn our marshmallows. We had a cup and Mrs. T put marshmallows in our cup if we were sitting quietly. We also did math to figure out how many more marshmallows you needed to make 5. If someone had 3 marshmallows, they needed 2 more to get to 5.
In one station we were talking about The Little Old Lady Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything. First we had to take the boots and go stomp stomp. Then we had to take the pants and make them wiggle wiggle. The shirt went shake shake and the gloves went clap clap. The hat went nod nod and the pumpkin went boo boo! Then they all turned into a scarecrow. We had to make the sounds and you had to wait your turn. We were following the story.
In Mrs. T's station we looked at a book about leaves and then we went to find leaves. We took turns being the leader to find a leaf. Once we found the leaf, we tried to match it with a tree. We looked at our leaves and then we looked up to find a match. When we found a match, we did a leaf hi five.
In this station we had a ruler and we found stuff that we could measure. We marked how long it was on a chart. Blue Jay and Newt found a stick that was about as long as a ruler. A ruler is 12 inches long. We measured how long things were in inches and the thing that was the highest was the most inches.
This is the chart we made in our station.
We had pumpkin cookies today. Dr. C made them because we earned 100 alphabits. They looked like real pumpkins but they tasted like cookies. Beaver said they tasted like cinnamon too.
We had fun eating the pumpkin cookies. We are tired. At the very end of the day it started to rain!
The temperature today was 41 degrees.
