Did you make it home Granny?

Dear Granny,

We had another awesome visit with you, and I hope that you landed safe and sound. Please know that we love you and it was really hard getting out the door this without your help(and coffee).

Another closet upgrade thanks to Meemaw's knitting love and expertise. Hoodies for all! This one particularly brightens a dismal week in Beijing. Thanks mom, we love you and miss you! Xoxo

Way to go Benne! Thanks Ms. Lane!

Bennett was very proud of his work today so I took a photo of him and his work to send to you.


In class we were learning about a new role for 'literature circles'. The role was for the 'Predictor'. Before reading the next chapter in our class novel, students predicted what would happen next and wrote down their prediction. We shared the predictions, realized that they were a little bit short and lacking detail. So the students erased their work and made an improved second draft of their prediction that was much more detailed and thorough. We all agreed that the second drafts were much better and we were all very proud of each other and ourselves. 


You should be proud too.


Have a great day!
