In keeping with our gift-giving culture in the Princess and Ranger classroom, last week the children prepared gifts for our 5th grade buddies, the Watchdogs. The children selected stones and bark. They mixed paint and created their own designs on the stones and bark. The children will present these lucky stones/bark to the Watchdogs wishing them good luck in their test-taking time this coming week. The children wanted their friends, the Watchdogs, to know that they will be thinking about them and sending them good thoughts this week as they take a test that all students in the district will be taking.
