On Tuesday, the creative and talented Ileene came in to our classroom to teach us about the Japanese holiday of Boys' Day. We have been looking forward to this since celebrating Girls' Day with her, and it was well worth the wait. We had so much fun creating samurai hats and puppets and kites and toys. We even had a chance to try some new foods. Thank you, Ileene and Reese for sharing your time and your traditions with us!
Finishing our All About Books!
This week, Ms. Wiegand finished teaching her All About informational writing unit. Each student published a piece to share at a class writing celebration on Friday. Students read each others All About books and then gave the writer feedback about what they learned by reading their book. The books were very informative and we learned a lot. The students' books will be scanned this week and posted on e-folios soon.
