We also have a lot going on in the classroom.
With the STAAR writing test behind us, we're tackling fractured fairy tales. In reading, we'll move on to books groups with a variety of novels.
In math, we'll try our hands at coding.
And in social studies, we're seeing Texas grow and prosper in the decades after the Civil War and rejoining the United States.
