Owney joined our class for a visit on February 5th,
2008. We we returned from our special class, Owney
was waiting for us. Mrs. Hicks read us his story
and shared a PowerPoint about her visit to the US Postal
Museum in Washington, D.C. where she saw the real Owney.
Afterwards, Owney enjoyed watching us as we participated
in our reading groups and corner activities. Owney
had a quiet lunch on his own before we joined him back
in the classroom for our math class where he learned
about the 3D geometric figures. He loved our
science class as we did a fun science activity about
magnets. Then he had a great time reading as we
read and took AR tests during our DEAR Time. We
said our good-byes to Owney as he had to continue on his
way to visit all 50 states this school year!!
