This week we read, Questions, Questions to help us begin to think about wonders we have.

Some of us shared ideas like:
 
How do the leaves change color?

Why do some sharks go after humans?

Will I ever find a four leaf clover?

Add some more wonder questions you are thinking about in the comments.


 
 
These are the amazing faces of our first grade class! 
Can you think of word that tells about these faces? Add it to our comments and we can create a poem! I will start the first word and as you add to comments, I will add to the poem.
