We sang "Little Donkey" for our Christmas Concert on Monday. It goes like this:



Little donkey, little donkey

On the dusty road.

Got to keep on

Plodding onwards

With your precious load.



Been a long time

Little donkey

through the winter's night.

Don't give up now,

Little donkey

Bethlehem's in sight.



Chorus

Ring out those bells tonight

Bethlehem, Bethlehem.

Follow that star tonight

Bethlehem, Bethlehem.



Merry Christmas and to all a good night!

We had a field trip to the Art Museum today. The children got to make snowflakes out of clay. The clay has to dry before it can be fired in a kiln. Then the children can paint them and take them home.

We were invited to the cultural Fair in the gym. The fair was put on by the grade 7s and 8s. I gave the camera to one of my students to take pictures of the displays and this is what I got...Dawson, you took some pretty funny photos.

We have a worm colony in our classroom. They are red wigglers. These worms are ideal for composting fruit and vegetable waste indoors. They eat the compost and produce a rich, nutrient soil with their poop. We harvested the worms from two colonies and got 2 ice cream pails of worms plus two 5 gallon pails of compost (worm poop). The Pre-K class helped us with our harvest. We got dirt all over the Pre-K room!

I was bringing a camouflage netting to school for the Remembrance Day display. We decided to have some fun with it.

Our class was harvesting worms with the Pre-K's. We got two ice cream pails of worms from two large tubs of dirt. We also got two 5 gallon containers of worm poop out of the deal. Holy cow!!!

We're almost done swimming. Friday is the last day. All of the teaching has been done and the children get to have "free time" on Friday.

I had the great fortune of taking a workshop from an artist named Wendy Anderson Halperin. The workshop was about gardening in the classroom. Wendy taught me how to draw monocot and dicot plants. She also did a lesson on drawing a pencil. I was so inspired by her teaching that I did my best to pass this knowledge onto my children. Here are the results.
