Mr. Michaels came to our school and let us pick out two books from a large selection of fantastic stories. Thank you Mr. Michaels and the Apple A Day program for coming each year. We have learned so much about ways to keep ourselves healthy and how to be good citizens.

Each child mailed their letter to Santa. Each of these letters will first be sent to Macy's and they'll donate a dollar for each letter to the Make A Wish foundation.

Throughout last week, we read three documents on the river Nile. Friday they wrote an essay using these documents explaining how valuable the Nile was to the ancient Egyptians. Some then shared what they wrote with the class. I was very impressed!
Everyone helped trim the tree with ornaments made by a dear friend Ms. Rasmussen. She stitched ornaments that have the year on it and our picture inside. The kids were thrilled! I'll send them home before break for you all to enjoy for years to come.

Brian came today to show us a few of his instruments, where they originated, and how they're made.
Last week we watched an interview with Taylor Swift. She talked to a group of elementary students about how she deals with bullies even as an adult. She chooses to, "Shake It Off!" This interview sparked a great conversation in our class about ways we can handle someone trying to bully us.
