Thome 1:29t2“We got journals from Brittany. They are for our fountain pens.”

Adeline 1:29a2“We saw a red fox. It was cool to see the fox. The fox was near the barn.”

Colby 1:29c2“We used the drill to measure the ice.”

Bella 1:29b2“We made patterns. They were all different. We hung them up.”

PATTERN QUILT

The 5/6s & 6/7s took on (and conquered!) the challenge of creating a pattern and repeating it nine times! The outcome was beautiful, surprising, and very exciting!

CREATURE PUPPETS…

Slowly but surely our newest gang of puppets is rising from the papier-mâché and découpage. We are looking forward to having the robot join the team!

WOODWORKING

This week saw a flurry of activity around the workbench! We have big plans for the products we will feature in our upcoming market and woodworking will play a key role for one of these.

MUSIC

It’s official. We are now reading music. Well, we are at least reading rhythms!

ICE SKATING – COMING SOON!

Mike joined us on the pond to teach us how to measure the thickness of the ice. Weather willing, we should be able to strap on our skates and our helmets for some old fashioned pond skating next week!

A GREAT DAY FOR A HIKE!

We took inspiration from the 7/8/9s adventure up Mt. Equinox to head out into the wilderness near school. We visited the beaver dam (which is now partially covered in ice) and went off-road, cruising around on the trails, where we may have found an old tree house!

Thank you to Mother Nature for putting a cherry on top of this great week!
