Learning From Home

Growing as readers, writers and thinkers at home

Welcome back everyone!

Happy Thursday! I hope that you all enjoyed a fun day of reading, writing, and playing outside! I had a great time with my daughters learning and taking lots of walks. Did anyone view yesterday's video? If so, please let us know! We'd love to hear what you thought!
