Ni hao!
We are beginning our study of ancient and modern China, a theme that will take us through January and right up to the Chinese New Year. In the works are a visit to view Chinese art at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art and a visit from the Dragon Puppet Theater. We will work with tangrams and learn even more Chinese. Right now Jing is teaching the students to write and say hello, goodbye, thank you, and more. 

Stamps Needed
As we write and send real letters, we will use real stamps. Stamp donations are highly appreciated. 

Book Fair Thank Yous
Our classroom received many wonderful books at the Barnes and Noble Book Fair. We will also receive a percentage of sales to help build our classroom library and buy sets of books for book club. Extra thanks go to Tina, Emilia's mom, for putting protective covers on so many books!
