Ms. Henriksen – Professional Dancer
Ms. Karner – Nurse
Firemen and Paramedics
Mr. Nitkowski – Professional Baseball Player
Mr. Hudson – Lobbyist
Mr. McGruder – Attorney

Many of us choose the books we read through recommendations from friends. It’s fun to watch how popular a book or series becomes in our classroom after one child gives it a rave review. That has recently happened with the I Survived series by Lauren Tarshis. This series (six books currently) is historical fiction and is more challenging than the Magic Tree House series which combines fantasy with historical fiction. This would be an interesting series to read with your child this summer. The author looks at these disasters through the eyes of children.
If you click on the book, you can read the first few pages.
Thanks to Mrs. Dickey for introducing us to Xtra Math! What a great program! Riley is the first to achieve 100% mastery in addition. Jake and Cailin are not far behind. Mastery of basic facts will increase your child’s accuracy, speed, and therefore confidence.
Pandas are only found in the wild in China. They spend most of their time eating bamboo in the cold mountains. We watched the pandas on the panda cams at both the Atlanta and San Diego zoos. Click below to watch the pandas. There are great photos and videos on these sites.
