Week Eighteen: Penguins

Rachel (Oak mom): Meanwhile, the third graders are reading this fabulous classic.

Christine (lead teacher of the Acorns): Did you know I have many, many penguins writing letters to me? So many, in fact, that I can’t keep up with all the responses.  Together, the class wrote a letter to one of the penguins, and then Darling wrote a postcard to another penguin.  Whew…almost caught up in my responses.  We learned many facts about penguins this week, as well as revisiting Tacky and his crew:  Goodly, Lovely, Angel, Neatly and Perfect.
