Also during workshop this week, we illustrated one of our North America chants.

For Kind Kids Club with Ms. Hines, we decorated kindness capes for the kindergarteners!

Go Noodle! :)

We continue to be thoughtful, observant readers! That chipmunk photo is on our chant and in that nonfiction book, you're right!

A little Kid President to inspire kindness! :)

We had such a fun week! I already can't wait to see everyone on Monday, to start learning about Asia together, and to see more of these kids' amazing writing! Have a great weekend, everyone! Enjoy the fall-ish weather! :)
