Maddie is unable to concentrate on her school work because she is thinking about how Peggy teasing Wanda. The game originally began in October on a bright blue day. Wanda responds to the teasing by looking at them stolidly and pursing her lips, wrinkling her forehead up so that the gray toboggan slipped all the way down on her brow. Wanda says she has a hundred dresses because she wanted to inpress the girls at school.

In chapter 2, Peggy and Maddie notice that Wanda was not in her seat. She wasn't at class the day before either. They like to taunt Wanda by playing the dresses game when they all were walking home. Wanda would always respond like she actually did have a hundred dresses or sixty pairs of shoes. Who knows. She might actually have a hundred dresses and sixty pairs of shoes. Maddie always wished Peggy would stop teasing Wanda Petronski. It bothered her.

Our group was asked to summarize what we learned about Wanda, through the eyes of her classmates . in Chapter 1. We also took the time to give each other a compliment!
Wanda was not a very popular girl and she was a very shy girl. She always sat in the last row where all the rough boys sat and where most jokes were said and where many laughs happened. In a chapter these girls that seem to be popular are waiting for Wanda to mess around and probably call her names. The girls' names are Peggy and Maddie. Wanda wasn't there on Monday or Tuesday. On Monday, no one noticed she was at school. On Tuesday, only the teacher and Billy Byron. On Wednesday, Peggy and Maddie noticed that she wasn't there.

The 5th Grade started a unit today using the book The Hundred Dresses, by Eleanor Estes. They are reading this story in literature circles of 4-5 students. Using this book, they will complete activities and literature responses, Throughout this story, it is my hope that the students gain a better understanding of empathy and what it really feels like to be in someone else's shoes. Additionally, we are striving to compliment each other more and do more random acts of kindness.
This week team three is making a of the play for the book Because of Winn-Dixie chapters 1-4. We have been working on our scripts and rehearsing them. We are working really hard to write the script. We have done a great job working together. Everyone thinks this play will be awesome and very fun!!
