Even though we were disappointed that we did not go to the Farmer’s Market yesterday, we had a great time wearing our pajamas. A group of high school students read to us. We are looking forward to walking to Farmer’s Market next Thursday.
We were very busy trying to get all our Mm projects done this week. We celebrated Mickey Mouse’s birthday with individual pizzas the shape of Mickey’s head. We also made banana muffins. We discovered we are great cooks, both were delicious! The class also made mouse hats, macaroni necklaces, marshmallow sculptures, marble paintings, and music. Some of us did a marvelous job dancing the Macerana.
We graphed M&M’s by their color. Ask your child what color he/she found the most of in his/her bag. We also estimated how many M&M’s were in a jar. We had some very interesting guesses.

Our room and hall look more like the winter than it does outside. We painted and cut out snowflakes that are on the windows. Look at the hall and see our snowmen made out of marshmallows and cotton. Everyone illustrated “5 Happy Snowmen”. Make sure your child recites it to you when it comes home on Monday.
The class had a great time on Mitten Day. We designed our own matching mittens. They are hanging in the room. We graphed our mittens based on their different attributes. Our mitten patterns are being sent home today. We graphed our favorite kind of weather. The majority of the students chose sunny.
Waffle day was a great success. We ate every last bite. We decided we really are good cooks.
