It all started when Mrs. Zimmerman told us we might get a class frog. If we persuaded her to get some tadpoles. If we did not persuade her then we would not get tadpoles. We were so excited but we were going to use our most persuasive writing yet! We researched and prepared for our best persuasion yet! After 45 minutes straight of writing our letters, we were so confident that Mrs. Zimmerman would want a frog or not. Most of us wanted a class pet and only some of us didn`t want one. The next day Mrs. Zimmerman`s decision was on the board. But we were not getting a class frog , specifically an African Clawed Frog , instead we were getting an American toad. The scientific form of the American Toad is" Bufo Americana"

Yana and Isabela, I was also so surprised to get Bufo Americanus instead of Clawed African Frogs. It makes sense though that American Toads are most widely available right now, given that this is their mating season. I can't wait to watch our tadpoles become frogs over the next months. Great blog post to start our "Frog Blog"!

Thank you and great job writing the blog! For example, you wrote the steps in the correct order, you also wrote the scientific name of the American toad (Bufo Americana) and much more.
