Miss Holmquist, my student teacher this semester, wanted to try doing clay with a group of kids. Only the younger grades get to do clay in the winter due to the unpredictable weather (and the very predictable drying time of clay), so first grade was the lucky winner. They made hedgehogs based on Mercer Mayer's Little Critters, and they're adorable. We got them all glazed while she was still here, then mother nature threw us one more curveball and ruined the firing schedule. Here they are, Abby! All done!
