Robert Munsch

Today we listened to a story called More Pies! by Robert Munsch.  We took notes on a clipboard, like we often see Ms. Rappaport and other teachers do. 

Check out Robert Munsch's website.  He reads his stories aloud, for free.  Want to listen to More Pies! again? or hear how Robert Munsch reads his own books? 

 Visit here!

Tomorrow we are going to be reporters where we ask our classmates questions about the story.  Some questions the teacher will give us, and some we will come up with ourselves... stay tuned!

Extra, Extra, Read All About It!

 
This just in... we are getting 2 more iPad mini's!

Our current iPads reached their maximum space for apps.  There was just one thing left to do -- write a proposal for some more. Luckily, the project was funded.  Over $900 was donated for the iPads and protection plan... and they should be arriving after our spring break.
