Happy New Year! We welcomed in the New Year with a new student. Her name is Irenosen, and she has just moved from California. We are so happy to have her in our group! We passed the Talking Fish today to share something we did over the Winter Break, and to tell Irenosen our names.
We read a book called Mapping Penny's World, by Loreen Leedy. This book shows the important parts of maps that help the user know where things are. Ask me to tell you two things a map needs. We looked at examples of different maps and made our own maps today.
Have a nice evening!
