The day that...
it was slippery.
We are ready to go outside! This morning we learned about sherpas. Sherpas help people carry all the gear when people are hiking in the highest mountains in the world. Mount Everest is the tallest mountain.
The benches were slippery with ice from the raindrops. All the benches were slippery and everyone was sliding. Cheerful chipmunk was sliding on the ground. We used our hands to feel that it was slippery and our feet and our bodies, too. We also used our eyes. If something is slippery, it looks shiny.
Some of us were so cold that we wanted to come inside after morning meeting. Sweet snowshoe hare had cold, cold hands. We snuggled together to stay warm.
Brave Barred Owl, Selfless Snowy owl, Balanced Blue Jay and Responsible Red Fox found the scat that they had seen last week. It was frozen! They played house and played with a tree. They felt like it was falling. Bubbly Black Bear, Nice Northern Shrike, Reliable Racoon and Enthusiastic Eastern Newt were playing rough with each other. One of them jumped on another and he was sad. Then we were all sad. Mrs. T talked with them and the student who jumped on another student said he was sorry, gave him a hug and asked if there was anything he could do to make it better.
It was so bitter cold outside and wet that we decided to have our stations indoors today. In one station we read a story. The book was by Crocket Johnson who also wrote Harold and the Purple Crayon but it was a different book by the same author about the same character. In this book, Harold takes a trip through the alphabet. We put our thumb in front of our mouth if we knew what letter it was and if Mrs. T called us we got to say the letter and the sound.
In Miss Wetzel's station we did the calendar. We wrote in our calendar journals, too. After we did math we practiced thinking of words that start with different letters.
After lunch and rest time, we were drinking hot cocoa while Mrs. T read a story. It was good.
We were brave in the cold weather today. It was 36 degrees out. It felt colder than that, though because it was raining. We were brave in the cold and it felt good to come in and get warm.
