Another fantastic week in first grade!  We were blessed with 2 mystery readers.  Ms. Donado, (Natalia's mom), was our Thursday guest and she read the book How to Catch a Leprechaun and was kind enough to donate it to our classroom library.   We also completed an activity based on the story and we were treated to delicious snacks and didn't we just look fabulous in our St. Patrick's Day sunglasses and necklaces?  Our Friday guest was Camila Bazan (Emily's cousin) who read a great about St. Patrick's Day.  Thank you, ladies, for sharing your love of reading with us and for your awesome generosity!  Just a reminder that this Thursday, March 21st, is our class trip.  All forms and payments must be received by Monday if your child is participating.
