This is Brainy Bobcat’s work. He hopes to see some tracks in the forest. He made a great drawing. He left spaces between his words. He spelled a lot of trick words – to, see, the, I!
Bright Blue Bird and Trustworthy Tree Frog are hoping to see grass showing. Bright bluebird did a great job on the grass. It looks like it has points on it. They both used lowercase letters and spaces between their words. They both drew themselves with blond hair and they both have blond hair!
It was windy and unpredictable weather outside today. We were nervous about the wind knocking down dead trees so we decided to spend the first part of our day indoors. We did our forest plans and then we had our morning meeting. Next we did things like snack, first recess on the playground, fundations, writing and number corner.
We are eating lunch outdoors next to the school. It was bright when the sun was out it was not as bright when the sun went behind a cloud. The trees were swaying in the wind and we even heard one crack.
We were collecting things like Mrs. T. A twig that had a bud on it, and 2 leaves. An oak leaf and a beech leaf. When we collected the three things our job was done and we were ready to play!
We went fishing in the stream. We brought fishing poles and caught a giant fish. It was million feet long.
Some of us went on an expedition with Miss Thomas.
We got to taste sap from the maple trees and courageous coyote found the biggest shiniest rock he’d ever seen in his whole life. The sap tasted like water with a little hint of maple syrup.
We also checked the thermometer and the temperature was 40 degrees. We had fun.
Some of us stayed at the stream. We were racing sticks down the stream. When the stick stopped we put our fingers in to the stream to get it to go again or we used a stick. We used sticks to clear our leaves and other things so that the stick could keep going.
Logical leopard Frog and Mrs. T were playing shark goes to sea school. When we put the shark in the water we said you can do it, keep going little guy. He was having a hard time.
We found lots of rocks in the stream. They shined when they hit light. Ready Raccoon found a tooth and a golden rock.
Balanced Blue Jay found a good rock. We had a good day! Some kindergartners said that this was their favorite forest day yet. Playing in the brook is always a hit.
