Today was the first day back since it SNOWED!!!!
We had five home days!

Cornella's birthday was on a home day.

We came to school late today.
James said, "On news 14 Carolina they said we had to stay home for a little bit."
We read books.
After we read books, we ate lunch.
We had chicken nuggets and bbq.

After lunch, we went to calendar.
We learned about our week.
We counted the days of school.
Four more days until 100.

We wrote down what we know about Wilma Rudolph.
She hurt her leg cause she was sick.
She had polio.
She went to the doctor.
She wasn't supposed to walk.
She learned to walk again.
Then to run.
Then she went to the olypmics.
She won.
Three gold medals.
She was the fastest woman in the world.
She couldn't go to the store with white people.
Like Martin Luther King Jr.

We started making a shape book.
We colored.
We cut.
We glued.
We didn't finish.

We went to music.
We went to the gym.
In the gym, we watched a movie about our hearts being strong.
Then we sang a song in music.

We went to centers.
Cornella lost a tooth!!!!


Two friends have lost teeth at school!!!


We had a good day!
