Xixi’s grandparents came to school to show us how to make sticky rice balls filled with sweet sesame paste.
The Laser Bugs enjoyed meeting and spending time with their Reading Buddies from grade 4. They were excited to share their Writing Books with the 4th graders. First, they showed them some of their drawings and then they created a drawing together.
We are lucky that their class number is close to ours, so most children can spend time in pairs and only a few groups of 2-4th graders to 1 Laser Bug. When possible we group the students by mother tongue and encourage them to speak and write in the language that they fell most comfortable. We will look forward to building our relationships with our buddies and we will hopefully see them 2 or 3 times a month.
