This week the students of Mrs. McNally's class learned about the history of the Eurasian wolf. It is also known as the common wolf or Middle Russian forest wolf. This wolf is native to Europe and the forest and steppe zones of the former Soviet Union. Our unit of study has been in Europe. The wolf has been our main animal of study.
We are very excited about studying the Eurasian wolf as our class will be adopting a wolf from Wolf Sanctuary of Pennsylvania. The children will receive a photo of their adopted wolf, an Adopt a Wolf Adoption Certificate, and a fact sheet about their adopted wolf. Lastly they will receive a Wolf Information sheet packed with information on wolf communication and wolf facts. While practicing our sounds all of the children know wolf makes a "w" sound.
The students have created beautiful wolves out of colored construction paper. They all carefully traced, cut, pasted and assembled their wolf.
We are all very excited about a special visitor coming to visit us next week!
In honor of St. Patrick's Day, The Trevose Day School Leprechaun will grace us with his presence. All of the children will witness his mischievous deeds, for our room will be jumbled up and their will be glitter galore. All of the children will be left a pouch of chocolate coins!
