Our person of the week lives with her dad, her mom, and her sisters in a red brick house with tan siding. She has two dogs named Cory and Jack Jack. She also has 3 cats named Pedro, Lucy, and Princess. Her favorite color is brown because it is a pretty color. Her favorite subject is math because it is fun. Her favorite TV show is ‘I Carly’, and her favorite book is Curious George. She likes to eat pizza from Mike’s Pizza. She likes to play in the snow. She feels happy when she plays. When she grows up, she would like to be a teacher because she likes to teach. If she could go anywhere in the world, she would go to Florida. She likes it when her Aunt Nette comes over. She feels the best thing about her is that she is helpful at home. She feels she is special because she is nice.
We had a Distance Learning called 'The Mitten'. We connected with a teacher at the Indianapolis Zoo. He read the story 'The Mitten' to us, which is a 'pretend' story by Jan Brett. Then he showed us the real
animals that were in the story, and told us interesting facts about each animal. We took a fieldtrip without having to leave Howard School!

We've been busy in our own private 'Santa's Workshop' that has been held in our classroom. We've been working hard to make 3-dimensional trees to celebrate Christmas in Germany. We learned to play Jarabadach, which is an African Tic-Tac-Toe, to celebrate Christmas in Ghana. We've also been busy making surprises for our parents and special loved ones.

We made bread using the wheat we ground during centers last Friday. The class read and followed directions from a recipe. The whole class took turns putting in flour, eggs, water, milk, yeast, etc... After the bread had finished baking, we made our own butter by shaking whipping cream until the butter separated from the butter milk. (We drank the buttermilk. Most of us thought the buttermilk was yummy!) Then we ate our bread and butter. We are good cooks! The bread smelled wonderful and tasted delicious!
