Manitoba has been in quite a cold snap lately (temperatures as cold as -43 degrees Celsius with the windchill), and the animals that endure these temperatures on a regular basis seemed like a good focus for learning. We just met Peter Puppy in Letterland, and I always enjoy matching our letter/sound to a relevant area of study. For the next couple of weeks, we are excited to read, write, investigate, and share about penguins, polar bears, seals, walruses, and whales!
