At Mariposa Elementary, Mrs. Michelle Smith’s 2nd grade class teamed up with Mrs. Theresa Delancy’s 3rd grade class for writing! Every 2nd grader has a 3rd grade pen pal who acts as a writing mentor. After reading the story The Plump and Perky Turkey, students were asked to imagine that they were a turkey! Together with their pen pals, students had to come up with reasons as to why the turkey should not be eaten on Thanksgiving! Tahlia Sugrim and Abigail Santiago are showing their hard work. The students had a blast! Afterwards, they celebrated by creating their own Thanksgiving turkey cookie!
