My goodness, we have been busy!  We are learning how to write reports.  Spiders are our first topic since we all fell in love with Charlotte in our read aloud book Charlotte’s Web!  We are ready to write our final copies, and even made spiders to go along with our reports!  What good writers I have!

I was so happy with the sentences the kids were able to write on the back of their spelling tests.  Everyone took on this new challenge and did a great job!
