We went to the Town Hall meeting on Veterans day and saw the veterans. They announced their names and told us what branch they were in. There were a lot of veterans. The veterans were very nice of course. There were so many flags in front of the stage. It was very long
We got a new table and chairs and it is comfortable. We moved out the island and a table to make it fit nicely. WE (the kids) moved the chairs, tables and, other furniture. We made more space.

We have mealworms. We are learning about how they grow. We are wondering if they are eating when they are a pupa (turning into a beetle).
We are reading many different versions of the story of The Three Bears. This is helping us think about books we can read my ourselves, books I can read with another reader, and books someone will read to me.
Mrs. Frazier ordered new books from Amazon, and they came this week. We got I am a Story by Dan Yaccarino, I will Not Eat You by Adam Lehrhaupt , and They All Saw aCat by Brendan Wenzel.
Together we read the Hungry Giant's Soup by Joy Cowley , and we learned about reading voices and the characters voices. When characters are talking, we make our voices high or low. We know when they are talking because we see quotation marks.
We are making a lot of great stories, and we are learning to us mentor authors. We can write like Dan Yaccarino, Ame Dyckman, and other friends in our class.
We are learning to spell new words by using our linking charts and parts of words we know like wow and cow and now.

Each day is a step in becoming who we will be. Learning is in the process, and not one step is more or less important than the one before or after. Becoming learners who believe in themselves and who are willing to take the risks necessary to grow takes deliberate patience and recognition. Enable our early learners to continue on this journey, honor all the steps on the way.
To honor and celebrate our journey we are joining the Celebration Link-Up with Ruth Ayers. Each week Mrs. Ayers will host a Celebration Link-Up on her web site Discover, Play, Build. Thank you Ruth for this place of celebration!
