On Friday, my class took a walk to find our lost bear.  On our travels, the kids met the school nurse, Mrs. Beayon, the guidance counselor, Mr. Greco, the school secretaries, Mrs. Lufkin and Mrs. Solari and finally found our bear in Mrs. Pulsifer's office.  He was there with a special snack!

On December 13th, my class took a trip to my house with their Otter Valley buddies to reenact the story Night Tree by Eve Bunting.  We made some animal food decorations in the morning - popcorn chains, apple rings and pine cones dipped in shortening and covered in bird seed.  We hung the ornaments on trees to provide the animals a holiday dinner!  We pet the horses, played in the snow and had some hot chocolate. Enjoy the pictures of our trip.

My class has been reading various stories about the Gingerbread Man, Gingerbread Girl and the Gingerbread Cowboy.  We made gingerbread cookies and used those cookies in science experiments.  One experiment let us know what happens to a gingerbread man when he gets wet.  Another day, the children designed something that would get their gingerbread man across the river without getting wet.  Here are some pictures of our experiments.
