Happy Friday! We have started reading a new class book called, The Land of Stories: The Enchantress Returns. It is the second book in the series, but it is the type of series that you don’t need to read the books in order to understand them. It is a very long book so we will be working hard on stamina and comprehension. Next Tuesday, Mr. Will will be bringing in Makey Makeys.
