We won the Benny this week by working hard to do the right thing at lunch!

Writing Workshop

This week we did a few writing projects. After reading The Hat and Animals Should Definitely Not Wear Clothing, we wrote our ideas about whether animals should wear clothes. We made a couple of class list books and wrote a lot of our ideas . Now, we are ready to write our own book. We brainstormed some ideas, picked a topic, and started to plan our stories this week.

Happy birthday Ben Franklin

We celebrated Ben Franklin;s birthday today. We learned about all of his inventions and made our own inventions with K-Nex. We watched Ben and Me and enjoyed a popcorn snack.

Technology

We began our technology lessons with our technology teacher, Mrs. Miller. We used story maker on abcya.com to create our own writings and drawings. You can check it out at home by clicking on the link below.
