This is what my teachers look like.
My teachers are...
the best teachers in the world.
My favorite thing I learned about this year is...
I learned that if you don't cook it right you will get killed by it.
(My word this one cracked me up!!! When we were learning about sharks we read that more people get killed by pigs than sharks. We scratched our heads and said, "HUH?" so of course we had to google it and find out. We found out that more people die from eating pork that wasn't cooked properly than from a shark attack. OH! Why didn't the book just say that! We were picturing Pigs that attack! :)
I learned that they roll in the mud to cool off.
Next year I plan to include a monthly writing sample in these surfing books to show our writing growth as we surfed through the year!
