Yosemite

Hello from Yosemite! We have had a busy week!

On Monday, Miss Trudi visited us and brought a bearded dragon! We learned the differences between real “dragons” and the fairytale.

During workboards we learned all about hibernation, and the animals that hibernate.

We drew bears hibernating in caves and practiced writing the letter Hh.

We learned how animals eat lots of food and get fat bellies before hibernation. We used “fat gloves” to test how the fat keeps animals warm.

We used unifex cubes to count and make a graph.

We made our own caves for hibernation.

Finally, we worked together to make hibernation cupcakes! We baked a teddy graham into each one!
