Great Class! Students are asking about trip to Orlando...No word yet if it has been approved.  Keeping fingers crossed.  Start saving for it now! :) I really would like everyone to attend!!!

H.W.: Research about a Japanese Warlord or a Japanese Emperor.  Bring source to class with a paragraph in rough form...sloppy copy! Have a fantastic week!

The trip to Orlando is scheduled for March.  We are waiting for approval! I will keep you updated ASAP...:) Our class went by way toooooo fast today!  We read a story called, In the Time of Drums".  It was really great!  We learned all about Gullah and researched Teakettle Creek.  A great site to learn more about Gullah is knowitall.org.  The site is called Gullah Music.  it has African Music, Folktales and Activities.  The students really enjoyed our lesson today.
