What are we Learning this Week!!

This week we are wrapping up our unit on Ecology by planning and creating an ABC Alphabet Ecology book. All students are required to create a book. For those students with a chrome book, we have found a great online digital tool that we will use for making books. The website is https://storybird.com. Each class will have their own class code.

****Every student MUST have their Chrome Book and Charger everyday.
