Wednesday

We are expanding our travels to . . . the USA! We hopped aboard a plane and traveled to Philadelphia (checked in on the Liberty Bell), NYC (visited the Statue of Liberty), California (looked at some Redwood trees), and down to Florida (it's a peninsula!). The highlight of our visit was learning the 50 states song. Be careful, it will stay in your head for DAYS. :)

The 50 States Song

Thursday

We love to share our writing! We have 21 fantastic authors in our class. Today we had an opportunity for students to share their books. After sharing, the books are added to baskets at each table so that we can read our friend's books.

Friday

We were so fortunate to receive our very own tennis racquets and balls from the Smyth Foundation! We took a picture of all the 1st-3rd graders posing with our racquets to send as a thank you. :)
