Earl - told us about his new kindle. The last one he fell down the stairs and got a fat lip and the kindle broke. It still worked a little, but didn't work that well.

 Fiona - Mazie gave me a wand for my birthday that was a butterfly that sparkled and had real jewels on it.

Bodhi- Shared a picture she made with a dog and cats.

Today was the last day we got to have time with our 3rd/4th grade buddies in Heidi Hill's class. Its been a great year getting to know each other. Thanks for the good memories. Here are a few shots of some buddy fun. Til next year....

Books Read Aloud....

Diary of A Worm By Doreen Cronin


FIELD TRIP MONEY IS DUE!!! We are headed to ECHO on Wednesday. Please send in money($11) for your child if you haven't. Also don't forget to pack your child a bagged lunch for that day.

Readers' Theater...
Thank you all who were able to come to the Readers' Theater performances on Thursday and Friday. All the kids had a great time working up to the day to perform their parts, and rocked it!

Trip to the Library...
We took a walk to the Warren Public Library on Friday. Marie the librarian taught us a little about the summer reading program. She also had a book to read to us, which happened to be Mo Willems Presents, That Is NOT A Good Idea. Turns out we did a read aloud with Marie, since it is a book we know so well and just had our own Readers' Theater for this book. We got to explore the library a bit. Lots of playing. Have you been to the library with your child? If not, you should definately try to, "That Would Be A GREAT Idea."

Making Fortune Tellers (a.k.a.:Cootie Catchers, I thought Beth was kidding, had to look it up!), hasn't been this much fun since I was in elementary school. Thanks West for bringing this back into my life. Throw back for me, but totally on schedule for these guys. Loving the fortunes! Hope you do at home too.

Our last Science unit is about coding.We have been going to the library to learn about how coding works.

Save the Tigers....
Some kids from the second grade class came in to talk about a project they are working on. They are raising money to help the tigers. Kids can support this cause on Monday. Second graders will be at lunch selling treats if anyone is interested in purchasing some.
