The Three Billy Goats Gruff

This school year has definitely been busy for us. We are currently working on an arts project that you will read about later. But we already performed a play depicting our version of The Three Billy Goats Gruff. With help from our drama teacher, we worked on our set as well as practiced our lines. We hope you enjoy this rendition performed on December 6, 2007.

Back from Winter Break - Boomer is Still Here!

We finally returned from a long Winter break. It was reassuring to find that Boomer, our dog, was still around. This was unlike the time in September when he decided to have a "day out" wandering around the school. Based on a book, Boomer Goes to School by Constance W. McGeorge, our adventure was well documented with pictures of our search for Boomer. We used Microsoft Photostory to help us create this synopsis of our day looking for the dog. Of course, we were also learning to spell. Can you find the misspelled word in our story?

During Back to School Night in October, our parents were able to hear our voices and see pictures of our expedition as we learned to describe the experience. We now know how to tell our story orally from creating presentations like this one. And now we wanted to share it here as we continue to show what is happening in our classroom.
