A new friend from Canada

Imagine the delight or my class today when my teacher, Mr Huglin came into our room after recess with a parcel from Ontario, Canada.
Inside, were letters, a book on Canada and a new friend for me "Diamond", a polar bear webkinz. I cant wait to play with him in my virtual world. My students all read their letters with great interest. The letters will be photocopied and kept at school, but the original letters will go home to be read to families.
Here are some photos of us. The first photo is Mrs Mirtschin checking out a letter and Diamond.

Throughout the month of March, the students followed the Iditarod dog race in Alaska. Each student chose a musher and checked up on him or her throughout the race. Here I am posing with one of the "Itidarock" dog sled teams. It's cold and dangerous on the sled route...I think I'll stay with the students at school instead!
