All Goosehill, students have been busy reading the book “The Mitten Tree,” by Candace Christiansen. It's the sweet story of a lonely woman named Sarah who sees a way to help a child in need--and then another--and another by knitting mittens to keep them warm as they wait at their bus stop on cold winter mornings. Ms. Riggles’ students loved looking carefully at the illustrations to find clues that reinforce their school-wide HERO teachings of Honesty, Empathy, Respect and Open Heartedness.
Young scientists in Ms. Ranaldo’s Kindergarten class read lots of books about winter and freezing temperatures. Each year, Ms. Ranaldo waits for a frigid sequence of days so her students can make their own frozen water. As an extra spice of fun, Ms. Ranaldo places a surprise toy in their water cups, then sets their trays outside for their water to freeze
Ms. Sloan’s first-grade students at Goosehill prepared for a blizzard in the classroom, as they sprinkled snowflakes to decorate their very own snowman. Looking a little like the friendly Olaf from Frozen, they carefully rolled their snowballs then glued buttons, a hat, arms and carrot nose to complete their happy snowman!
Ms. Adams Kindergarteners read all about the Gingerbread Man during a literacy unit prior to the holiday break. They read stories about Gingerbread pirates, Gingerbread babies, friends, and Gingerbread girls. Then they tackled making their very own Gingerbread Man crafts – check out these adorable renditions!
