January 31

Once again our trail was covered in ice and it was too dangerous to go down (and up) to our woods space.  Instead we had a 'snowball fight', did some 'snowy' crafts, and then went out to the side field to play and learn.

"Me and my friends were having a snowball fight because we couldn't go out into the woods because the stairs were all ice."

"It was a paper snowball fight."
"There were 'must know words' on the snowballs and we would throw them, and then they would say stop.  We would open the snowball and have to say the must know word.  Like is, my, so, go, and like..."

"We were making snowflakes.  When we put the glue on it, you could put sparkles on it."

"I was making a snowflake.  I put dashes of glitter on the glue."

"We were making snowflake snowmen."

"We cut out pieces of paper ad we glued the paper onto the piece of paper."

"I was making my snowman with ripped paper."

"I was punching some holes out for my snowman's eyes and buttons."

"We were licking the ice, and then we were looking at all the cool bubbles that were frozen in the ice."

"I was jumping off the tire."

"We were trying to scare who ever was getting in the tire.  They would wonder what the noise was.  I was hiding."

"I was tired and I was laying in the tire."

"I found a big ice cube!"

"I slipped on the ice."

"My friend was holding a piece of ice and I was trying to get a piece of ice too.  If you put the ice in the sun it looks like there are crystals on it."

"She is trying to get a piece of ice out of the ground."

"We were playing deer, and my friend was pretending to sleep, and I ran to the mountain."
"We painted our 'must know words' on the snow."

"We were making 'must know words'.  We wrote words like no and is.  We used different colors to paint."

"I was painting in the snow."

"We were writing 'must know words' and I was writing 'we'."

"I was making a heart!"

We LOVE Wednesdays!

"I was going to slide and my feet almost slipped so I was watching my steps."

"My friend and I were going down the hill and my friend crashed into me."

"I was cracking ice and it sounded and looked like glass."

"We were having a ride with Mrs. Brown."

"We are sliding down on Mrs. Hull."

"Everyone piled up on the hill and we were sledding down the hill."

"We were sledding on the field covered in ice."

"My friend was pulling me and two more sleds."

"I was pulling my friend in the sled and I was slipping."

"Miss Skilling was pulling me and then Miss Skilling let me go and I did a turn."

"My friend was trying to pull me and he fell down because he was tired."

"Me and my friend were sledding."

"I was pulling three sleds with four people on it."

"My friend and I were playing on the snowbanks and we were pretending that they were our houses and then we connected them to pretend they were one big house."

January 17

"We are sitting.  The trees were all covered in snow."

"The hill was SLIPPERY!"

"There was a hole and the tracks led around it."

"These tracks could be fox tracks because it has paw prints with claws."

"When we were not in the woods, an animal digged some dirt up and there was dirt on the snow."
"Animals go under the snow so that predators can't get them."

"There was a hole in the fort, and we thought an animal might be in it."

"I was climbing the tree."

"I was climbing also, and I went higher."

"I was climbing the tree.  It was so much fun!"

"I was shoveling off the benches."

"We were shoveling the back of the shelter off."
"We wanted to see if there was ice.  In some places there was ice and we tried to get it off."

"Our friend was under the bridge."

"I was trying to make my friend feel better."

"We had lunch and we were sitting by the fire because we were cold."

"I was eating my dessert near the fire."

"We ate popcorn!"

"I was making my castle."

"We took turns swinging on the vine and we pretended to be cowboys and cowgirls."

"We were making ice art.  We collected things around us and poured water in."

"We poured the water and left them in the shelter.  We have to wait for the ice.  We will check next week."

"I was standing on the wood pile and I was using my arms to hold me so that I wouldn't fall.  I was singing 'A Whole New World'."

"We got covered in snow!"
