The suns rays from Team 1 PES on Vimeo.

Class 20 wrote a wonderful story about the playground. It was so nice watching our clever students re-craft the story and move from using the word 'sun' to 'sunshine' and finally to 'suns' rays.' Wow! Class 20 are really 'thinking.'Today we sung our story, both as a class and all on our own!

The Great Alphabet Mystery

We have been learning our alphabet in Class 20 and finding our way around the school.  We've combined this learning into a movie which will appear on PENN this morning!  We hope you enjoy seeing some of what we've been doing over the last few weeks.

Class 20 goes swimming ...

Class 20 started swimming this week!  We're learning how to be "starfish", put our heads under the water, float on our fronts and backs and kick across the pool with and without boards!  We will be swimming this week and next week, every day except Friday!  Check out some of the great things we have been learning!
