This week in Morado, we began a study of Asia which will culminate with a particular focus on India in March. Many of the children learned where Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Tajikistan are, since we are sending money there through the Pennies for Peace program. A couple students presented what they learned about the Mongol Empire, while others presented a Chinese folktale, "The Dragon King's Gift."
In the week ahead, third graders will be joining the Upper Elementary students in preparing for the annual "Colonial Feast." The children will be purchasing supplies on Monday. We will have a time of sharing this Friday, February 26. If you wish to share something, please bring an item that does not require batteries or electricity and that fits in the backpack.
