This week we enjoyed two celebrations. First, our unity point party and second our Multi-cultural celebration. Students were introduced to traditions from around the world including Ramadan, Chanukah, Japanese New Year, Danish traditions and Kwanzaa. Students moved from station to station playing games, hearing stories, and tasting the delicacies from each culture. Enjoy photos from the celebrations below.
Snowman Glyph and Resolutions
Students created a glyph, a symbol with agreed upon symbols, of a snowman telling the rest of the classroom whether they enjoy playing outside or staying inside, hot cocoa over apple cider, or sleeping in or waking up early. After creating these glyphs, students examined each others' creations, uncovered the data, and created a graph of the information to share with the rest of the class. Students took these glyphs home. Ask your student to share with you the different symbols and results from the classroom.
