Buddy reading with Leopard class.

Meeting our buddy class and sharing our love of reading.

For our first week in Hedgehog Class, we discussed what it means to make a mistake. We questioned if mistakes are good. Could something beautiful come from a mistake? We then tested this theory out after listening to the 'Beautiful Oops!' and 'the dot'. We took paper with holes and rips in it to see what we could create. Some paper had folded corners. We got creative and chose a variety of mediums to turn our 'mistakes' into something wonderful... Mistakes show we are learning

We all had such a great first week and we are super excited to continue our year 3 journey!
