Week 4

In week four room19 bought some class mascots.We have mascots because we had to give the snail and whale to the next class. Miss Tempero  gives  the dinosor and  the  squirrel out  to good behaved children.We played  a game of  tag with the snail and the whale.  The snail and the whale has helped us do story writing. Room 19 had t- ball again this week and we did catching balls and throwing properly.
We had so much fun with the snail and the whale.

Class Mascots

We were sad that the snail and whale had to go to another school so.............we decided we needed class mascots. 
We now have a Squirrel and a dinosaur.  I wonder who will get to look after them first? Maybe it will be someone who is a very good listener !
