Today we read/performed our final poem for the year. This poem was perfect because it had to do with drinking a lemonade in the summer's heat in the shade! We are all very excited about summer and are very proud of how we each have improved in reading this year!

We have been learning about ocean life this week. Today, we wrote two sentences about a fish after reading the story Not Norman. The story was about a little boy who wanted a pet that he could run, climb and play with. His parents bought him a goldfish. At first, the little boy wanted to trade his goldfish Norman back in for a different pet. In the end, he found out how special Norman really is to have. We put ourselves in the shoes of the character from the book and wrote two sentences about how special our pet fish is.
I was late posting my Mother's Day crafts because I did not want any of my student's mothers to see their presents before their child gave it to them. Below is a bouquet of flowers with coupons written on the stems!
