Our Friendship salad last Thursday was a huge success! Thank you to everyone for sending in the fruit. We had fun making it and then enjoyed eating it at snack time with our friends. We had plenty for our class so we shared it with other friends throughout the school. We also got to celebrate Mr. Maurice’s birthday. He is our special friend!
We had some special visitors last week. Three third graders from Malletts Bay school came to our classroom to talk to us about MBS. They did a great job answering questions and telling us about their school. It was also fun to see some old friends!
We had a great time learning about beavers today. We also made beaver lodges and had fun eating like beavers. One special person got to dress up like a beaver. We learned a lot during Four Winds.
One of our favorite read alouds this spring has been Gooney Bird Greene by Lois Lowry. We have decided to celebrate this fun book by coming to school on Friday, May 10th dressed in the “style” of Gooney Bird Greene.

Puerto Rico, Maryland, New Hampshire, Ontario, Cape Cod, Washinton D.C. and Vermont.
