Welcome to our Blog!

The battle of dogs vs. cats goes on daily in my house as well!
At last, we are ready to start blogging about the learning and activities that have been happening in our classroom the last several weeks. We have been extremely busy cooking up some great strategies in math, reading, and spelling...Where do we start? Well, currently there has been quite a battle going on in our classroom. Between the barking and meowing, I'd say these animals are reading up a storm! Scholastic books have set up a National Reading Contest that we are participating in. For every 20 minutes the children read and log on the scholastic website, they donate a book to children all over the world. Plus, whatever side you have chosen (dogs/cats) earns points. Each day the numbers tend to be rising and these pets sure mean business! They were given a screen name last week and password to log their books. Way to go readers!

I look forward to checking on which one of YOU will be crowned TOP CAT or TOP DOG with the most minutes logged!
