The day that...
We ate the muffins we made and we made stone soup.
Bobcat and Beaver were making a see-saw. Others used a see-saw too. Deer mouse and Raccoon used the see-saw as a weighing staff to weigh things. The see-saw was made out of some wood bark that had fallen from a tree. One piece was on the ground and the other was balanced on top.
After that, we had snack. We had muffins. The muffins were pumpkin. Some of us might make pumpkin muffins at Thanksgiving too! Or pumpkin pie or pumpkin cake or pumpkin cookies. We made the muffins yesterday! We put pumpkin in them and cinnamon and sugar. The pumpkin flavor came from canned pumpkins. The things that make the best muffins are teamwork and good friends.
We made stone soup. Mrs. T told us the story of Stone Soup by the fire. We were cutting, washing, and skinning the vegetables. It was pretty fun.
In Miss Wetzel's station we read a book. We read Stone Soup. There were 2 versions of the story that we could choose from. We talked about how they were the same story but it was a different book and we voted to decide which one to read. In the beginning of the story people shut their doors when visitors came. By the end, there was a feast and they learned to share and be nice.
We also moved our bodies to stay warm. We did 10 jumping jacks.
We also rubbed leaves. On the top of the leaf we drew who we wanted to give it to. We wrote down the person who really helps us. We chose a person who we were grateful for. Box Turtle chose her great, great grandfather because he fought in a war. Blue Jay sent it to his mom. Dr. C will give them to us so we can take them home to give to the people who we are grateful for.
We had a great day. We were cold today! The temperature was 41 degrees. There was ice out there! By the end of the day it had melted but we all got to touch it. It felt cold and smooth and wet.
