Yesterday we visited Mrs. Backey's room to learn about cotton. We read a book about an African American girl who did not get to go to school. She had to work from sun up until sun down in the cotton fields. We really enjoyed getting to see a cotton plant and feel real cotton. We also discussed the way the girl spoke. We learned to not say "my friend and me." Instead we say "my friend and I." The students worked on writing sentences to practice writing and speaking the correct way.
