Back to school

September 2 is getting closer all the time. As much as I lament the end of summer, I’m totally excited about the great things we’ll be doing this year.

One of the big areas of focus for our class will be collaboration. We will become pen pals with a class from the state of Arkansas. We’ll also be working with nearly a dozen different 5th grade classes from around the United States doing research and reporting about the presidential election. It’s going to be lots of work, but promises to offer a tremendous amount of learning and fun.

Enjoy the last couple weeks of vacation, and get ready to dream (and do!) big this year!
