A note from Mrs. Wells

I wish everyone a happy New Year. It was a busy week trying to get back into the flow of school. We are focusing on the writing of our trickster tale that is based on Texas facts. Students are using authentic Texas landforms, plants, and animals as they craft a writing that meets the criteria of a trickster tale. We should be finishing in a couple of weeks and look forward to reading our stories to kindergarten students.
