This week we took our clay fish home.  We also drew a picture on our own, then traced it on to styrofoam.  Next week we will turn them in to prints.

In Guidance  we read a baseball book about sportsmanship.

Yesterday we started a new story in Spanish.

We started a new read aloud book called Owls in the Family.

We had our fiction stories typed and then drew pictures.  This afternoon we will share them.

In computer class half of us did a reading program, while the other half did math games.  Then we switched activities.

Today is our May Day Celebration.  We will sing on the Common.

We had a fabulous week!

This week we made swirly flowers in Art.  Mrs. G put the clay fish from last week in the kiln.

In Music we watched the musical Shrek while Ms. Bushway was away.

We worked on writing.  We wrote our fictional stories.  We made lists of describing words called adjectives.

We had a volunteer come in from Junior Achievement.  Dan taught us about families and how we can help out.  Then we talked about needs and wants.

While Dan was here the first day, we had a fire drill.  We were not expecting it!

We had a fabulous week!
