Special thanks to PTO president, Maria Woods, who graciously served as a tour guide, escorting us to the various exhibits. She ensured that we got to see everything on our list in the short time we had!
Mrs. Parnell and Mrs. Hoyt wish everyone a great vacation and ask the students to keep reading and writing over vacation.

|Be sure to check out the portfolio when it arrives home. There are samples of the many different styles of art and the various artists we studied! We are very proud of our work!|
On Friday we will be heading to the Museum of Fine Arts. To prepare for our trip we were very busy this week finishing up our unit. We learned more about the mummification process, Pyramids and the Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt. We even created our own mummy cases along with a headdress and collar similar to those worn by the Egyptian kings and queens.
Our portfolios are assembled and will be going home with students later this week. Please be sure to take the time to review all the items in the portfolio. We have worked very hard on them. You are certain to be impressed with all you will learn as you discuss the various pieces of art.

Leah fit right in sharing with us that she is an art lover and is very familiar with much of what we are doing!
We are all looking forward to working together and getting to know each other more next week!

It has been a very eggciting couple of days in room 101!
We painted spring eggs like we saw in the book Rechenka's Eggs, we made spring baskets and a spring book about subtracting eggs.
Wait until you see our book about what bunnies do, and our bunny/ducks. They are so cute!.................Of course not as cute as our class visitor, Turbo!
