What a wonderful and varied week we have had at Woodland! Linus, the scientist, was amazed that a Ziplock bag pierced by five sharp pencils sprung no leaks. Miles brought in his state and national park collections of quarters. Tyler, Pilot and Nina worked on their sewing skills while making hearts for our Valentine tree and pillows. Cole made "Mr. Learnie" out of blocks instead of Legos during one of his brain breaks. Ori, Olivia, Nina and Pilot made sage butter, salted butter and pumpkin pie spice butter. Team Finley and Yarrow and Team Aida and Olivia continued editing their film entries for the North Country Film Festival. Ori and several other students spent time outside enjoying the beautiful snowfall, sledding, and playing "wolf" out in the woods. Gorgeous ice globes, looking much like Murano glass, were made by many students. The process of selecting a new Journey of Discovery was also begun this week. So far, the choices are Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Revolutionary War, French Culture, and Extreme Weather. Love is in the air as students craft their own Valentines and plan for Pajama Day next week!
