Step inside Room 13. Enjoy the snowman display hanging from the ceilings and door art.
Seems more kindergartners made right guesses that the groundhog would see his shadow than not.
The recipe for fun today was making heart shaped birdseed feeders. And what a mess we made! But remember a mess is a good sign of a fun time.
Twin Cities Live show airs five days a week on local channel 5. It covers local events, fashion, fun, contests and fun things to do for families. One segment is called Kids in the Kitchen. This activity was recently featured for kids to make Birdseed Feeders.
The following are the directions for the activity and a link to the show's video.
1.Pour ½ cup boiling water into a large plastic bowl. Since the classroom did not have a electric water boiling tea pot or a heat source I had to use teacher microwave and bring back hot water in a thermos. Add 2 envelopes of unflavored Knox gelatin into bowl and mix well. Add 1-1/2 cups of birdseed to gelatin mixture and stir until all of the birdseed is coated.
2. Place cookie cutters on a parchment covered baking sheet.
3. Press the birdseed mixture into each cookie cutter filling up to the top. Use waxed paper to press the birdseed firmly into cookie cutter.
PS. There is some progress to report. Today only 4 children needed their shoes tied!
