The Mitten

On Wednesday, January 11th we reviewed the story The Mitten by Jan Brett. We went through the order of the animals as they entered Nikki's mitten. We talked about how the animals were living things. The students were able to prove how they knew this! We found out that 7 of the 8 animals in the mitten were mammals and one was a bird. 

Later in the afternoon, Ms. P. from the science center came and did the hedgehog show. Ms. P. reviewed all the animals in the book and highlighted the hedgehog. At the end of the show we were able to meet Pearl the hedgehog.

We received some sad news over the weekend. Ms. P. emailed to tell us that Pearl had passed away. We knew that Pearl wasn't well when we saw her, but we were hoping that she would recover. Ms. P. told us that hedgehogs have very short lifespans. We were lucky to have met her!
