We Are Sailing Through Kindergarten!

March 18th, 2016

This week...

  • Happy St. Patrick's Day! The leprechaun visited our classroom and it was so exciting! Thank you to the parents who came in and helped us celebrate this fun holiday.
  • We celebrated publishing our very own expert books. We shared our books with buddies in our own class, and Ms. Cipriano's class (Mrs. McGahan even made a surprise visit! She loved our books!). What a great way to show off our hard work! We are so proud of ourselves for going through the whole writing process and becoming authors and illustrators. Don't forget to complete the family book review!

    Please watch the video below to check out our journey!
