There were cherry blossom trees made in the art area and sparkly rising suns on the Japan flag. We read books about Yoko, a little girl who moves from Japan to America and how she learns to read and write in English while her classmates learn to write in Japanese. Children worked on 3 part cards to learn to write numbers from 1-10 in Kanji. We wrapped up our Japan unit by making Miso soup with Sarah, Taylan’s mom.
In February we’re going to learn about Europe as a lead in to our France unit in March.
This month we started working our way through Pretend soup and other real recipes as well. It is a weekly activity that is already looked forward to eagerly; both, by me and the kids, and is immensely enriching to our classroom. Thank you all for your support and for sending in everything we need to cook.
