Mardi Gras Day!

We celebrated our Winter Walking victory with a day full of fun!  We walked 5, 280 laps around the school or 1,320 miles....that is the distance it would take to walk from Brattleboro, Vermont to New Orleans, Louisiana. That is a major accomplishment for anyone, but for a group of Kindergartners it is simply AMAZING!  We spent the whole day learning about New Orleans and having a Mardi Gras party.  We used our SMARTboard and took a virtual trip to New Orleans using Google Earth and watched an actual Mardi Gras parade on YouTube. We play a musical Mardi Gras mask game and then decorated our own masks.  In the afternoon, we had Adelee Austin as our Secret Reader!  Afterwards we wore our masks and had a Mardi Gras parade and made a wish using our special coins!  Our day ended with an ice cream party with our parents. It was such a great day!

Happy Mardi Gras Day!
