Teddy Bear's Picnic Movie

Buddy Class

Our Buddy Class in Room 17.
Last week we got together and made a flower using our hand prints.  We coloured them in and glued them together 
and made a masterpiece.

We are learning to work collaboratively with others.  
Together everyone achieves more. 


After lunch we sit down outside our classroom and drink milk.

We like milk.
Yum Yum Yum
We like milk
in our tum.
