Where has Mrs. DeWitt Been Reading?
My family and I just got back from a wonderful trip to the Grand Canyon area. This is us at Bryce Canyon in southern Utah. Our trip was enriched by all the reading we did. We stopped at several national parks and learned a lot about the culture and history of this area. Each area we stopped at had museums, brochures and signs with information about the Native American culture, geologic and pioneer history, and important safety information as well. For instance, while hiking, we read “Mountain lion have been spotted in the area, keep young children close to you!” A sign next to where this picture was taken said “On the rim of the canyon, if you start feeling your hair stand on end, leave the area immediately. Electricity is building up in the air and lightning often strikes the rim!”
Now that we are home, like Mrs. Barr, I also have a long list of books I’ve looked forward to reading this summer. Next stop- the library! I hope everyone is having a great summer!
More students came to Pinewood to read this week also. Remember next Wednesday July 10, 2013 from 5-6 in the evening Popsicle social for all of our NFL learners.
