Over the past two weeks Maple Ridge kindergartners have been learning all about how to be at school! They have been practicing following school rules, walking in the hallway, and eating in the lunchroom. To celebrate all they have learned, Mrs. Richardson's class read the story King of Kindergarten and decorated crowns to show they are kings and queens of kindergarten!

Today, in Mrs. Olson's 3rd grade, we began learning about the reading comprehension skill, drawing conclusions. Together we stepped into the role of detective and practiced drawing conclusions. We collected our information (clues) and used that information to draw a conclusion and successfully solve the case of the missing mascot!
