Hello!!! We have been working so hard on learning the elements of nonfiction! We are becoming experts on nonfiction! If you need to know how a glossary, index, or table of contents helps a reader, just ask us! We just enjoyed a story about the life cycle of bees. We didn't know there were so many facts about bees! We used to only know two things... 1. They sting. 2. They make honey. NOW... OUR SCHEMA ON BEES IS HUGE!!!

WOW!!! It has been a while since we have written!!! We have been learning several new programs, so it has been hard for us to get on the blog. We are going to try to get on every day now! Today is Digital Learning Day. It reminded us that we should not neglect our blog! Today we Skyped with some students from the high school. We sang them some of our math songs. They even sang us a song! Today we also got to Skype with Connor! The video wasn't working, but we got to read him some of our stories. We love Skype!

Read to Someone

Today we learned how to Read to Someone. We did a very nice job! We learned to sit EEKK. When you say this word it almost sounds like you are scared of a spider! (EEEEEKKKKKKK) :) It means Elbow Elbow Knee Knee. When you sit like this it helps you and your partner to share the book and read quietly. We love reading with our friends.
