Second grade has done an awesome job researching the three types of forests this week in the library: Coniferous, Deciduous, and Rain Forest!
I'm so proud of our Allen second graders for learing so much this week during our research unit. Next week, they will continue to learn about the different animals in each forest.

This is a prime example of why you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. What an awesome story! You won't want to miss reading this one. Did you know that the author of this title, Kate Klise, will be visiting Allen next year?
After her father, brother, and sister are killed in a plane crash, twelve-year-old Daralynn's life in tiny Digginsville, Missouri, proceeds as her mother turns angry and embittered, her grandmother becomes senile, and her flamboyant aunt continues to run the Summer Sunset Retirement Home for Distinguised Gentlemen, while being courted by the owner of the town's new crematorium.
