New Epals in Dubai!

This week we finished up our MAP testing. We take this test every fall and spring to determine our growth in math, reading, and language arts. We continued our unit in poetry in Readers Workshop. We practiced writing quatrains, acrostic poems, and limericks. Check out our classroom website to find some neat websites that take you step by step through the process of writing several kinds of poems.
In Writers Workshop we have been weaving our internal and external stories together to create our memoir. In the afternoons we have been busy researching our exquisite experiments for science as well as working on money in math.

Our most exciting news as that we have new epals in Dubai! We emailed them early in the week and are anxiously waiting a reply. We are going to be learning about their culture as they learn about ours. Technology has made the world so small!
