Inspired Reading and of course, playing in the snow!

Naturally with all the fresh snow this week, Woodland students have been outside quite a lot! We began our week with a gorgeous day nordic skiing at Bretton Woods. The students who chose to stay at the school instead of go skiing baked up some delicious pumpkin/oatmeal/chocolate chip muffins to have as a Valentine's treat when the skiers returned. Several students finished up editing work and submitted their films for the North Country Film Festival. Journey discussions continued and students have narrowed the topics to Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Revolutionary War, or Extreme Weather. Woodland Mountain has been in constant use, as have our Altai skis and Tubbs snowshoes. Inspired by something called "gunk music" from their book "Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy," by Douglas Adams, one Read Aloud Group spontaneously broke into song with Cole playing air guitar on his hand made Atlatl, Ori playing air piano, and Leo with Sharpies in his ears! Another Read Aloud group was inspired by the artwork of Skottie Young from the book, "Fortunately, The Milk," by Neil Gaiman, and created gorgeous pen and ink drawings. Our week will wrap up with a student requested Pajama Day and Valentine party on Friday!
