Forest Friday, May 19th

The day that...
we had asparagus and pepperoni.

This is Engaged Eastern Redback Salamander's journal.  He put spaces between his words.  His picture matches his words.  His picture has really great details.
This is Brave Barred Owl's journal.  She wrote "I hope I see a hummingbird."  She started her sentence with an uppercase letter.  She put a period at the end of her sentence.  
This is Nice Northern Shrike's journal.  He wrote "I hope to see a salamander."  He used realistic colors in his picture.  The tree is really good.

These friends are carrying several lunches.  In this picture Brave Barred Owl, Selfless Snowy Owl, and Responsible Red Fox were carrying the lunches.   Bubbly Black Bear and Enthusiastic Eastern Newt were also carrying lunches.  Other friends were carrying water and our forest toilet.

Wise White Footed Deer Mouse is wearing Mr. Sadowski's hat.  Bugs were flying around his head and the hat kept them away.

During play time some of us were making fairy houses by the brook.  We made beds and a pool.  Some of us were making holes in the brook and making the water flow faster and slower.

We had vegetables and pepperoni for snack. Some of us helped to make the fire.  We needed fire to cook!  It was very easy to cook.  Wise White Footed Deer Mouse helped.  He was very safe when he used a knife.   The pepperoni was a little spicy.  The asparagus was very yummy!

In Miss Wetzel's station we were doing math.  We were working with the tricky teens.  There were cards that had numbers on them.  Those cards matched other cards that had the same number in a double ten frame.  It was good. 

This was from Mr. Sadowski's station.  We made log houses.  We had to be kind and fast.  We worked together!  This is the boys' house.  

It was seventy two degrees outside.  It was kind of hot.  We had so much fun!  It was a good day.

Forest Friday, May 12th

The day that...
it was super muddy.

This is Sweet Snowshoe Hare's journal.  She wrote "I hope to see a cardinal bird."  It has spaces which helps us see the words.  
This is Engaged Eastern Redback Salamander's journal.  He wrote "I hope to see a hole."  He wrote this in the morning and then found one when he went outside!
This is Cheerful Chipmunk's journal.  He wrote "I hope to see a fox."  His sentence has good spaces and his picture matches his words.

Wise Woodpecker and Warm Woodland Jumping Mouse found fiddleheads!  We noticed that there were a lot of baby fiddleheads.

During play time we went to the brook.  We had fun there.  Reliable Raccoon and Bubbly Black Bear found a crystal while they were there.  Some of us were building a fairy house.  Others were building a dam with rocks and leaves.

Responsible Red Fox found an acorn sprout.  It had a green sprout coming out of the side!

Engaged Eastern Redback Salamander found a large hole!  We wonder how it got there.  Some of us thought a bear lived there.  Mr. Sadowski told us that the roots were growing over a rock and that eventually the tree tipped over because it wasn't so sturdy.

We made grilled cheese for snack.  We used bread for the bottom and top and cheese in the middle.  Mr. Sadowski cut each sandwich into four pieces.  Everybody got to eat two pieces of grilled cheese.  It tasted great and delicious!

In Miss Wetzel's station we were doing math problems.  Bubbly Black Bear and Selfless Snowy Owl used five leaves to show how many dots were on the five frame.  The card tells us that 5+0=5.
We know other equations too!  3+2=5 and 4+1=5

In Mr. Sadowski's station we were finding different types of leaves.  We found maple, oak, white pine, beech, and hemlock.  It was fun.

It was a very fun day.  It was warm out today.  It was around 60 degrees.
