Percy’s Bumpy Ride

In Class 2 we are learning all about Percy the park keeper, he invented a lawnmower that started to fly. Today we sequenced the story and when we were finished some of us practiced writing sentences about the story. We are all trying really hard to segment and blend our words to help our spelling.
