We have had fun this week! We had a great time finishing up our apple investigations. We had the most awesome taste testing day thanks to some great parents. We got to see the Tooth Fairy and learn about loosing teeth. We had a fun time seeing different career vehicles. We published some booklets about our favorite story books and had a celebration parade with some first graders to share. So many fun things keep us so busy.
