Author Celebration/STEM Project

Our Author Celebration was a success! We were so excited to share our stories and sip on hot cocoa this morning. 

We also fit in a STEM project today. Our mission was to build the tallest tree possible. These pictures are my favorite :) As you can see, they were really into this project. Merry Christmas everyone!
