Hi I’m Morpheus! I went to Tom Sturgis’s pretzels. I went with Rachel, Sammi, and Mrs. Protheroe. When we got there we saw a huge pretzel. I sat on it with Rachel and Sammi. Then we went inside. On the door we saw a NO PETS ALLOWED sign!!! But we went in. Mrs. Protheroe told the workers about that I go to many schools in

Today Morpheus starred in a guided video tour of our classroom. He even had a chance to visit our playground and listen to an interview with our principal, Mrs. Cook. We will post the video as soon as it is finished.
Morpheus visited Ms. Delbo's music class. Jake shared, “Today we took Morpheus to music class. Our music teacher took pictures. Morpheus was holding rhythm sticks. Morpheus was playing a 4/4 time signature. That’s how Morpheus went to music class.”
Morpheus has been making turtle tracks all around the Jacksonwald neighborhood after school. Spencer and Conner wrote, “Yesterday, we went to the Daniel Boone Homestead to take some pictures. It was really fun there. We got to dress up like Daniel Boone. Morpheus got to see a deer, too. Morpheus had a fun time at Daniel Boone Homestead!”

Morpheus had a very busy Wednesday at Jacksonwald! Morpheus rose early for his first journey. Christina writes, “I went to the Pagoda with Morpheus this morning. I went to the Pagoda this morning because it got too late and dark. It was freezing outside. I don’t think that Morpheus likes the cold. I also feel bad for him because he was wearing a polo shirt and shorts, so he must have been freezing. My mom and my twin sister Melissa went with Morpheus and I. My mom took the picture while Melissa, Morpheus and I stood and got our picture taken. Then my mom drove Melissa, Morpheus and I to school. It was fun and I will also miss him. It was an exciting time.”
Later, Morpheus accompanied his classmates to Mrs. Bainbridge’s art class. Sara explains, “In art, Morpheus learned how to make an Egyptian portrait. Another thing he learned is how to outline and how to paint inward to just stay with the same color and not blend the colors together to make a different colors. That’s what Morpheus learned in art!”

Today Jacksonwald Elementary welcomed Morpheus Fortuna to Mr. Dibler’s third grade classroom. He arrived during our language arts time. We were surprised that he could fit into such a small box! It was so interesting to look at the souvenirs Morpheus has collected from schools he has visited. We will be thinking about what we can give him when he leaves us in a few days.
Morpheus had a busy day learning new things in our room. Ashley wrote, “Today Morpheus learned telling time with am and pm. In science he learned that sounds travel through solids: string and wood.”
