Perfect Painters

We have a class pet!  Actually, we have TWO class pets.  Our class pets are monarch caterpillars.  We're observing the life cycle of a monarch.  To do this, we will be making Picturing Writing books about our little critters.  We started our books with the first stage in the cycle of a butterfly - the egg.  

Storyworks, a literary magazine for kids, has an article on volcanoes.  The kids read a book about Mount Tambora.  It was a volcano that erupted in Indonesia.  The article highlighted the volcano's effects in NEW ENGLAND.  

More to come tomorrow - stay tuned.
