On Thursday morning, just after we finished our skype call with Mrs. Fisher's class two students from Mrs. Morrison's class came into our room with two very special friends. GBM Santa and GBM Candy were in our school! We have no idea how they got here but we are so happy to know that they are safe. You can read about how they were discovered over on Mrs. Morrison's class blog. Here's their post on them.
We were so glad to know where they were. On Monday and Tuesday we knew they were safe in Mrs. Fadum's class but on Wednesday we had no idea where they were. Thankfully they showed up before our google hangout.
This week Mrs. Morrison shared a version of the Gingerbread Man story. She read it to all three grade one classes at Bonaccord, plus Mrs. Sarchet, Mrs. Leech, and some students with Mr. Chila. Mrs. Fadum's class couldn't join in but we know they really wanted to. Here are a few photos from our google hangout. As you can see we had a very full classroom.
Mrs. Morrison did a lovely job reading the story and we promised the kids at Sullivan Elementary that we would take better care of Gingerbread Candy and Gingerbread Santa than Mrs. Fadum's class.
In the afternoon we got to take care of them. We brought them outside for Run Across Canada with us.
At the end of the school day we weren't sure what we were going to do with them. We decided to lock them in the iPad cart for the weekend, making sure they had food of course. We thought the iPad cart would be great because it locks, yet it has holes for breathing. We also spoke nicely to Candy and Santa Gingerbread and they told us that they would NOT run away So now we have to hope that they were telling us the truth.
Here's what they look like in the iPad card.
Not a bad place to spend the weekend.
Here's the door that they are locked behind! We sure hope they don't escape!
