Week in Review

I don't think we could have packed one more thing into this week! I am exhausted and I am sure the rest of Room 222 is also.

First up, International Dot Day:
Love the spirit from the Sharks table!
We celebrated everything that made us special. Some of our activities included a dot scavenger hunt and a Dot Day parade to celebrate what makes us special. See if you can find these events in our video:
We also celebrated Dot Day by making a new connection and Skyped with Mrs. Hogan's class in Dallas, Texas. 

As always, reading was the focus of our week. 
We celebrated our reading skills as a  few of our friends shared their hot reads with us. 
A.C. shared David Gets in Trouble. Classic!

A.H shared a popular Elephant and Piggie book, My Friend is Sad

Our wonder this week caught us by surprise. As we were Skyping, Mrs. Hogan's students informed us that they have a Bearded Dragon as a class pet. We were very interested in that. Then we learned that we have a Bearded Dragon expert in Room 222! J. S. informed us that he has a pet Bearded Dragon at home. So J. S. and his family sent us a picture of Desert and told us all about him. J.S. is so knowledgeable about his pet but we always research with more than one source. 

So, after we charted J.S.'s knowledge, we visited an amazing site called PebbleGo to hear from another source. The research groups used Chromebooks to help them gather this information. 

Room 222 is officially the McDole headquarters for Bearded Dragon knowledge. 

Last but not least, we had an amazing (and tiring) Fun Run. Thanks to all of the parents that came out and supported us!

Thanks for checking in!
