Mushers will be crossing the finish line all week. It looks like Brent Sass is in the lead on Sunday afternoon and is estimated to cross the finish line in Fairbanks on Monday, Feb., 11, 2019. This week we will celebrate (along with 100’s Day and Valentines’ Day) the mushers complete this amazing race. We will not focus on the winner as much as what a major accomplishment these mushers are accomplishing. The perseverance, dedication and will-power of these teams will be celebrated in our class and this is the lesson that I hope that my students are learning from their exploration of this event. You can follow the race HERE. You can also check out their Facebook page HERE. Check out what one of the veterinarian technicians does during the race.
Today at school we played with playdough. We went to the gym and played corners. We learned about bats. We learned that some bats are poisonous. Bats hunt at night. We drew bats. We wrote in our Journals. We had a visitor today, Ms. Lasota. She is coming to teach us.
