What a great country we live in!  On September 17th we celebrated “Constitution Day” with all students in the United States.  We learned that the Constitution is a very important document that is a rule book for our country.  We are also learning about our right and responsibilities as citizens of the United States.  We are working on our math facts and trying to get faster at them.  We learned about the explorer Christopher Columbus and his journey to America.  In Science, we have been learning about plants and dissected a lima bean seed to see the baby plant growing inside of it.  We also created our own little greenhouse to watch a bean seed grow. In English we are learning how to write different kinds of sentences.  We are in full swing now and working very hard.  We have a lot more learning to do.  We are looking forward to HALLOWEEN- dressing up in our favorite costumes, fun, and lots of candy!
