    and Sunny Days have Begun!!!

    Can you believe it is May!!!

    I am continously impressed with my students' progress.  This month is extremely busy!! We are working hard on our school musical.  We will be posing for our Wax Museum on May 16th.  We are finishing up the last few chapters of our class novel " Rules".  We are moving to the Mid-West in Social Studies, and discussing the properties of weather in Science.  The school year is almost over, but our class is still pushing on.
