The Week Ahead in 3-125
January 11, 2016
Happy New Year!
Some other exciting events this week: We skyped with a third grade class from Port Jefferson Station. Both of our classes read many books that might be considered for the Caldecott Medal- a wonderful honor for picture books. The Caldecott winner will be announced on Monday, January 12th. Our class selected our favorites and shared them with Mrs. Rosenquist's class. We both picked Finding Winnie as our choice to win the Caldecott! We can't wait to find out what book really wins.
Another exciting happening was receiving our penpal letters from Mrs. Werner's third grade class in Wisconsin. We skyped with them during the Global Read Aloud Project to discuss a book we were both reading, Fish in a Tree. We are happy to be connecting with them as penpals and look forward to sharing our thoughts on a new read aloud, The One and Only Ivan.
