Thank you to all the grandparents who came into Room 4 yesterday.  We had a super time showing them our classroom and our work.  The grandparents were amazing at dancing to our Free Style GoNoodle.  We were all very impressed.  We loved listening to stories from the past and looking at old photographs.

Take a look at all the fun we had.

Thank you to all the wonderful grandparents who visited Room 12 today.  We loved listening to their stories and looking at the photos and objects that they brought in. We enjoyed asking them questions about school life when they were young and playing Bingo with them.  Here are some photos of grandparents with their grandchildren and the grandchildren they adopted for the day.
