Happy Birthday Abraham Lincoln


Today we learned about Abraham Lincoln. We had a special speaker from First Grade come to share with us about her visit to his home in Springfield, IL. Katelin learned about Mr. Lincoln last year when she was in Kindergarten. Over the summer, her parents took her to Springfield to see his home! How exciting! Thanks so much for sharing with us Katelin. you Rock!
Here's a video to learn a little more about our 16th President!

Buddy Reading


video
We have been working hard all year to become better readers. Everyone in our class can find a book they can read. Sometimes we read  alone, "silently". But other times we get to read to a buddy! Who do you like to read to? Where is your favorite place to read?

Will He or Won't He?


We are wondering if the Groundhog will see his shadow tomorrow. We made our predictions in class today. 29 of us thought he WON'T see it and 18 of us thought he WOULD see his shadow. Which kids are right? We'll have to wait until tomorrow to find out for sure!
