Orfie has really learned a lot from his NON-FICTION reading!

Here's what he wrote:

Wolves hunt in packs. When they howl, they are saying, "I am over here!" When cavemen started feeding wolves, they became tame. These were the first dogs. When a wolf wags the tip of his tail, he is about to attack! Watch out!

Thanks for showing your SCHOOL SPIRIT!

Look who dressed like Ranger Docket!
