Our plant unit is coming to an end. To conclude this unit, we are having a plant tasting party! Each student picked a plant part to bring to the class to share.
To prepare for this event, each student needs to know what plant to bring and what part of the plant it is.
Here's our list:
To help those students in the Japanese class, students drew a picture of their plant part and memorized the following phrases.
これは (plant part we eat) です。
(plant part we eat)は はな／くき／たね／はっぱ／み／ねっこ です。
Surprisingly the students caught on and I think they are ready to tell me what it is and what plant part it is on Wednesday!
This year I decided to participate in Global Read Aloud. I'm connected with a classroom in Virginia. We decided to write each other snail mail to introduce ourselves. My students wrote a simple letter to introduce themselves.
For the first week, we are reading Chopsticks by Amy Krouse Rosenthal. We discussed things we like to do alone vs things we like to do with someone. We shared it on this Padlet.
