We asked a question to Victoria Coe, the author of Fenway and Hattie and she answered! Click on the link below to hear her answer our question and many others!
Ghost is a good book. It is a graphic novel. It is about a family that has to move. The main characters are two sisters, Maya and Cat. Some parts are sad like when Maya has to go to the hospital. Some parts are happy like when they go to the beach. I recommend the book Ghosts.

We got to go geocaching.Geocaching is like a treasure hunt. We got to play charades.We got to eat in the dining hall. We had a sandwich for lunch and chicken and veggies for dinner. We got to go canoeing at the lake. We had free time. We had a camp fire. We had a blast.

We did a skype with a class in Oregon. The skype was based on a book titled Fenway and Hattie. It is from a dog’s point of view and the author is Victoria J. Coe. Some of our favorite parts are when Fenway calls the floor evil, when he calls the squirrels dangerous and when Fenway calls his backyard a dog park. The class that we skyped with lives in Northwest Oregon. They have 557 kids in their school. They also have 27 kids in their class. They live near a beach and the water is the Pacific Ocean.When we skyped with them, the time for us was 12:15pm and their time was 10:15 am.
On Tuesday I got a microscope and slides. When you put the slides in the microscope you can zoom in really close. For an example let’s say there is a piece of a crumb. You put the crumb on the slides. You move the slide to where you can see it on the microscope. Then you can actually see the crumb really clearly and you can zoom in or zoom out and focus.
We are a 3rd grade class learning about the world.
