Working hard

Today students started to discuss the Tornado that happened in Oklahoma. Questions came about as "What is a tornado?" "Why do tornados happen?" "Can we have a tornado?"  After the questions came up we watched a short video from NBC which showed part of the tornado. Students were very interested and started talking about how it is similar to the Hurricane that hit us. They also talked about how they could help. After the video discussions ended, but they may come home today and ask you about it so please feel free to answer their questions. I made sure they know that they should not be scared and not to be worried.

Students have also been working on their All About Books on their animals. They are doing such a great job and are learning so much. I am so impressed at how far they have come since the beginning of the year. I look forward to the finished product. Here is an example of a students work about dolphins.
