Adventures Group 5

Asia is filled with a rich and colorful history which we learned more about through reading and research.  As few of the picture books we read together are: A True Book: Asia  by Gary Drevitch, The Trip Back Home by Janet S. Wong, We’re Riding on a Caravan: An Adventure on the Silk Road by Laurie Krebs, The Great Wall by Elizabeth Mann, and Wabi Sabi by Mark Reibstein. The students made paper lanterns to led them to happiness, ornamental fans to stay “cool,” mini tea cups for a delicious sip of tea, and dragons symbolizing power, strength, and good luck.  As we read Wonder during siesta we are continuing to learn the importance of building respectful relationships with our families and friends.
