Where Children and parents can discuss their thinking, ideas and the world!
Dear Parents and Students,
After lots of rain and cold weather, we can safely say that spring is finally here!
We have been observing how trees blossom, how daffodils bloomed and died and how we can again hear birds chirping and singing. Here are two pictures that show signs of spring.
Guess where this cherry blossom is blooming?
Another thing I love to do in the spring is go to museums. This is a picture of children playing outside. It is part of the collection of the New York Public Library. Are the children dressed like you? Do you play this game called croquet?
On another Sunday exploring New York City, I discovered a wonderful street filled with colorful flowers. What do you think of these flowers?
This month we have been reading different books by Kevin Henkes. Can you tell your parents which ones you liked and why? Can you post your answer for all of us to read?
We have been writing poetry in Kindergarten and first grade. The poem below was written with my first grade friends and Ms.Boucher. Her class was learning about South Korea. We had lots of questions and we wrote a poem titled "I Wonder??" Please read it and post some questions you might have about South Korea.
And speaking of South Korea, last Saturday some of my students invited me to see a wonderful performance by the Korean Traditional Dance of Choomnoori.I took some pictures which you can see below. It was a great chance for me to see beautiful dancers and dancing and to learn more about their country. Please look at the photographs and write some comments.
Some Exciting News
This fall, I will be in South Korea learning about schools, teachers, students and life in this country. I will be going as a Fulbright Scholar and hope to share what will learn with all of you.
