Journey Update

Here is Journey being taken by a student for his turn to see Santa.
Journey, our classroom bear, occupies a very important place in our classroom and in the hearts of my students. When he isn't traveling to far off places, he goes out with the car riders almost every day. He receives gifts of notes, art and food for special occasions, is read to almost every day and has had his picture taken with different students many times. Now he can put a visit with Santa on his list of accomplishments! Here he is being taken for his turn while wearing his very own bell from Polar Express and getting his candy cane just like everyone else in the class. I have a feeling that he plays a more important role than I ever imagined he would.
