I can’t believe we only have 5 months of school left! It’s awesome to think about summer right now, when it’s so cold outside. But there are still lots of things I want to learn this year.
My teacher does this thing called Mapping Mondays. She gives us the name of a continent to look at and study over the weekend and on Monday mornings she tells us the name of a country on that continent. Then, we have to do our best to draw it! (I drew an awesome Italy and took a picture for one of my blogs last year. See the Mapping Mondays! entry, in the September 2011 archives.)
Anyway, she said we really need to start studying the whole globe because at the end of the year she is going to give everyone a blank map of the world for us to draw! That’s hard! But I’m excited because she has told us waaaaay ahead of time so I have lots of time to study and practice.
After all, practice makes perfect!
