April 5th

Before going in to the woods today, we were treated to making 'healthy' snacks.
They were delicious!!

"We made a rainbow from fruit and the marshmallows were the clouds."
"We used strawberries, melon, kiwi, blueberries, mangos and grapes."

"We made watermelon pizza."
"The crust was watermelon.  The sauce was yogurt, and the toppings were strawberries, blueberries and white chocolate chips.

"I was fishing in a pond. I caught three fish. It was a puddle and I pretended it was a pond.  "

"I was trying to climb a tree. In the morning I only climbed up a little, but at free choice I went up higher."

"The tree was watery."
"The tree was wet but it felt like ice, but it was really watery, so then I knew it was water."

"We were making a bridge over the water I was fishing in.  We were making the bridge so that we could fish and not get wet."

"I was carrying a really heavy log to the pond to help make the bridge."

"We were making a fort."

"We built a 'fire'."

"We built a fort and were singing songs and we made a 'fire'.  We pretended there was a pool and a car."

"I was trying to tie rope onto a stick and then to his leg.  And he tried to walk.  It was crutches."

"We built up the walls and put sticks on top and then put snow on top.  And then more sticks and snow.  We put acorns and popcorn inside of it.  We were trying to catch a squirrel."
"We worked on this during sit spot time and free choice time."
"It started out just small, but then we made it bigger."

"We cooked popcorn on the fire."

"I was trying to tie the crutches to myself."

"I built a snowman and I fixed him.  I dropped him and I fixed him again."

"We find a kind of home in the firewood pile."
"It had spider webs and a hole."
"There was fur and munched up acorns."

"We found squirrel teeth marks on an acorn."

"I was patting up the snow and sticking a stick in it. It was sticky snow. The stick stood up on it's own. "
"We were doing s'mores!"
"We were toasting s'mores on the fire to celebrate my birthday."
"We were eating s'mores and they tasted gushy." 
"We were eating s'mores and roasting them because a friend gave them to us."
"Me and my friends were playing princess."
"I was trying to fall off the branch."
"We found a track while we were using our owl eyes."
"It looks kind of like a hand."
"We were trying to fish with the stick."
"We were trying to lift up a huge snowball. It wouldn't budge even with two people. We used a piece of firewood and a long hard stick and we kept bouncing on it and trying to push it. It didn't move."

"I was using my owl eyes to look for mice."
"We were playing a game where you pull the little fabric tails out of someones pockets."
"We were playing tail tag."
"We were having a pizza party because we reached our token goal!"

"I was sliding down the hill."
"We were sliding down a hill and it was really fun. And this was part of the hill"
"It got faster and faster as we packed it down. And it got browner and browner"
"We were pretending to drive a fire truck through town."
"We were swinging on the grapevines and resting."
"We were going across the bridge to try and get over to the other side."
"We were making a bridge so we wouldn't get wet crossing the slush."
"Some people didn't go on the bridge and went in the water or slush....and they got wet."

Snow much FUN!


"We were going to the woods through the snow."

"The ones in the front dug through the snow.  They made a trail for the other friends to go."
"We walked in their trail all the way to the woods."

"We were going down and the snow was deep and we didn't see the steps."

"There was snow on the trees and on the ground.  We had to make trails everywhere to go places."
"The zig-zag bridge is buried because the snow is so deep."

"The snow was fluffy, soft, sparkly and smooth."
"You can't see the bottom of the trees."

"We were crossing this bridge.  It was snowy."

"We were walking.  It was hard to walk.  It made us tired."

"I was making a snow angel."

"I was making a snow angel near the fort."

"I was shaking the snow off of the tree at sit spots."

"I found that spider when we were talking.  The spider is still alive."

"We were in front of a tree and Miss Soule took a picture of us near the tree."

"We were running back when the whistle blew."

"Me and my friend were laying on the ground to make out own little beds.  We wanted to stay there forever."
"We patted the snow down with our backs."

"We were rolling snowballs down the hill."

"Some people were getting more sticks for the fort, and some friends stayed at the fort.  Some friends climbed the outside of the fort."

"I was jumping off of the bridge."
"We were jumping in the snow, and coming back up and then jumping again."

"We were jumping off of the bride until the whistle blew."
"I was jumping off of the bridge."
