November 21, 2017

During this short week we sorted verbs and non-verbs by color coding words on leaves and creating a “Verb Tree”. We continued to practice our Saints in Training virtues and spent time reviewing place value and the Thanksgiving story. We finished our unit on heredity and our timeline of America!

 

Happy Thanksgiving, I am thankful for each of you!
