Early this morning in the woods we were making cake for a student’s birthday, it turned out well. It was called “Mud Cake,” but the mud in the cake was really chocolate. It was yummy. The birthday boy gave it a thumbs up.
We were playing a dice game. You have to collect chickadee sticks. When you roll a dice you would get that many sticks. When you get ten you can make a bundle. If you get up to fifty you win. We didn’t get to fifty, only to forty today.
Another one of the morning choices was building with the birthday boy’s father. Students worked on building a roof. There was lots of cooperation and teamwork during the building.
One student found a beetle and it was green and red. The antennae were red. It was very cool that a student found this. He put it somewhere safe where no people will walk.
One of the students, the birthday boy, was in a thing he worked really hard on, and lots of friends helped him.
There was a seat and we put a rock on, it turned out like a table for lunch. Four kids shared one table.
Mrs. Teachout was reading us a book about the months and the seasons. It had lots of poems in it. While we were eating lunch we read it. And we really liked the book. It showed in the illustrations how the seasons change and it showed all the full moons. It showed what happens every month of the year.
This student was playing a blindfold game. One kid put a blindfold over their eyes. Two other kids helped lead the blindfolded person from one tree to another. One student was in the back to warn the blindfolded kid when to step up.
These two started at the starting tree. The leader led and told the blindfolded kid where to go. The leader took their partner to a particular tree. The blindfolded person would touch the tree without looking. The leader would take them back. The blindfolded person would take the the blindfold off and try to guess which tree it was.
The birthday boy’s dad was cutting up sod for the fort. We put the sod on the top of the front of the house.
