You both worked very hard!  I am super proud of you!

                                                  Exploring with magnets!

                             We read "Monster Mischief" and made monster stew! It had lots of crunchy 
                                and chewy things in it!  The boys and girls weren't so sure about it!  LOL!
                                 No really it had pretzels, gummy worms, and cookies!  YUM YUM!

                                                  Disguising a turkey in STEMS Class!

                               It's election day and we read two books "Duck for President" and 
                               "Grace for President."  We first registered to vote then used a voting                                             ballot to vote for the candidate that we thought was the better choice

We hope that you voted because we did!  

Thanks for visiting us this week!
