We are learning about the country Colombia this week! This is the home country of one of our amazing teachers, Maria. We learned a lot about this country including some things that are exported from there as well as all of the different types of habitats there are. It seems like a VERY cool place and we’ve already asked Maria if we can travel there with her the next time she visits 🙂 Take a look and see what you can learn about Colombia!

Our theme for this week was lots of fun! We took a look at some of the characters in the comic Peanuts. Some of our amazing students posed as the characters–from Charlie Brown to little sister Sally to piano-laying Shroeder. Our awesome art teacher, Judy, and some of her talented students helped us by painting a Peanuts background for our models to pose in front of. Very cool!

We’re learning all about California this week. One of our elementary teachers, Mrs. Jen, was nice to let us use some of her pictures from her trip to California this summer!
The book has some facts about California like the state gemstone, some famous Californians, and some neat places you can visit. It even features one of our students “visiting” California on the “The End” page!

This week we are talking all about what teachers at our school like to do for fun. There is a WIDE variety of different things they like to do, from eating Colombian food to going down water slides.

We are all ready for the summer and have begun thinking about places we can go for vacation. One pretty popular place is the beach! There are lots of different things to see and do at the beach and our book covers some of these things, like playing in the water and seeing ocean animals. It got us all wanting to go! It looks like 2 of our students have visited the beach.
Make sure to check out their pictures in the book.
