Wow, lots of questions! We will answer them in a video this week. :)

Until then we read-aloud for you and have a few questions about the book.








Your VoiceThread introductions were wonderful! We noticed that there are many similarities between you and us.

Below are the answers to your questions - some of us also added a question for you, too.

Some of us are in their first year of English ...so please excuse the mistakes . :)

Dear buddies, we are on vacation this week so we can only answer your questions next week. We celebrated Halloween at our school as well and had a lot of fun as you can see below!


Some of us got the Flat Stanley "bug" and already read Flat Stanley Gets Flat Again in their independent reading time. We will, however, love to explore the book together. See you after vacation! :)

Hoooooray! Your Stanley's arrived today! They are tired after such a long long trip so we took them home. THANK YOU for the gifts, too! We started sharpening the pencils and used the stickers on our stationery. :) We'll post photos and videos next week.
Our Stanley's will start their journey across the Atlantic this Monday - we hope they'll arrive safely there.

We finally met "live"!

Despite all the technical problems we made it!

from sharing our hobbies, favorite things and memorable events!
