Canada, Ohio, and Michigan

Sorry for the delay in posting these. Our dear friends from Canada sent their project electronically. I will be printing it and including their project in your package. Packages also arrived from two of the Great Lakes states ~ Michigan and Ohio! By the way this summer on vacation we explored the Great Lakes and surrounding states. They have some of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. We are getting close to having all the packages. My students get so excited when the mail comes! They love finding the states on the map. I can't believe how this project has made our country real to them.


Michigan ~ gotta love the duct tape!

That's all for today... I am sure there are several packages waiting for me at school. Can't wait till Monday!
A huge thanks to Andrea of Mrs. Forehand's Phenomenal Firsties for answering my picture question.
To add pictures quickly and easily from my phone I followed her directions. I added Blogger to my phone, signed in, pushed on the pencil icon, filled in post title, then pushed on the camera icon, took picture, pressed use, and repeated for all the pictures I wanted. Rather than complete the post on the phone, I saved it as a draft and completed it on the computer. Much, much easier than the old way. Thanks ~ Andrea!

Pin It!

  3. I started following your blog today, and I'm curious about this project of yours. I'll have to do some digging into your blog to see what it's all about!! :)

    On a different note, you're a winner!

    I hope you have a great week!
