Language: Today we continued to read the Little House in the Big Woods. We read the chapter entitled "The Wonderful Machine". After finishing the chapter we talked about another reflection paragraph. They are writing about: How are our machines different than in pioneer times? We had the chance to start and will be finishing it tomorrow. Here is the structure for the paragraph.
Gym: Please see Mr. B's blog for more information.
