After lunch, we did one of our favourite things: we made a mess! It was art-time! This week, we got to use collage materials to make any sort of minibeast we wanted to, using a cardboard tube as a base. Our creations are going to play the starring roles in the photo stories we're going to be making soon. They turned out fantastically well and it was great fun being creative and working out how to attach antennae and legs and other insect parts!
We've almost finished our monster designs for our Monster Exchange. Designing them is the easy part. Next week, we're going to have to write really clear descriptions so that our Michigan friends can re-create them. Some of our designs are very complex and might be difficult to describe. It'll be quite a challenge!
Mrs L was in the classroom helping out this afternoon. We showed her some of the things on our blog and in our wikis. She thought we were very clever.
Mrs N got an email from Ms D, who is the teacher of our Lunch Exchange friends. They weren't at school yesterday as it was President's Day and they might not be at school tomorrow because of snow! Did you know that in some places, when it snows too much, they don't have to go to school! Ms D assured Mrs N that as soon as they get back to school, they'll catch up with their lunch pictures and descriptions. We hope they're having fun in the snow and not getting too cold!
