Thank you for participating in our weekend challenge!
This article sounds SO COOL! It is a great text-to-text connection with the "Schools Around the World" story we read from our StoryTown books this week. I cannot believe kids attend school via an avatar. That certainly is HIGH TECH!

The Person That Made Michael Phelps Feel LIke A Crazy Bieber Fan

This article was about when Michael Phelps met Michael Jorden.
He was called to go to a special place and they had him stand in a certain spot for about two minutes. THen when they told him to turn around right behind his was Michael Jorden. He started to hug him and they started to ask each other questions. They found out that they both love golf.My favorite part was that they have the same first name.

People and pandas get mooncakes.
