We went book shopping with Teressa to get new books. We go fiction and non-fiction.
We have new parters and it is winter.
We went to see the Nutcracker.
We saw people dancing.
We did lots of measurements. We did math to figure out something plus something else.
We are writing about places in Brooklyn with our new reading and writing parters.
Each one has their own chapter and we will make it into a big book.
