  1. Dear Caterina,
    My dad told me about the volcano on saturday about the volcano. I think that it is good that no one was hurt. I like how you used a video.

  2. Dear Caterina,
    You did a great job with your current event. You chose a cool article. I also think is cool that a volcano erupted recently. If I was in this situation, I would choose safety over my house.
