Whirlwind Weeks!!

Hello Everyone!!
My apologies for the lack of posts recently.  I finally had a second to sit down and throw some pics together of things we did the last couple of weeks.  We had open house the Thursday before Spring Break and our "theme" was Texas.  Our curriculum includes learning about the symbols and important historical elements of Texas. The kids loved learning about this amazing state and sharing what they learned with their families.  We included some research practice and expository writing along with some technology, some craft connections, some poetry, book making and so much more. Most of this is from our Texas units which you can get for free at the end of the post.  Til then, enjoy the pics!
