We are thankful!

Hello Everyone!  I stole this from Mr. Horst's blog so that everyone is sure to see what their kids are up to.  They blogged last week about thankfulness in Computers class.  Check out the link or go to Mr. Horst's blog to see what your student is thankful for.  Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving full of family, food, and fun.

We had so much fun!

Thank you all for your help on Halloween.  We had a super fun day in costume and all of the help (and sugar, of course) was greatly appreciated.

Sharks are Awesome!

We have had a rare opportunity in fourth grade this year to get to use Skype and Google Hangout in the classroom to talk to some experts about sharks!  Our first field trip took us to San Diego, California where we got to meet with Mike who has worked for Sea World for 20 years.  He answered tons of questions from us.  Then, on Monday, we visited with Jillian, who works in the Bahamas and is a marine biologist, like Mike.  They are from different places, but both of them shared many stories with us about Sharks and what we can do to get the word out about why they need help.  Ask your student to tell you more about all they have learned about Sharks.

Also, check out the website where we first saw Jillian, too!  There is plenty more to learn!
