I love to read week - day 5

I love to read week - day 5

We began our day with a visit from our big partners. They each chose a book to read to us. Then we did an alphabet scavenger hunt. They had to find something in the classroom that began with each letter of the alphabet. This was a great activity to help us practice our letter sounds and initial sounds in words.

In the afternoon, we had a visit from a guest reader - Elin Melchior. She taught us a little about Japanese culture. We even learned how to say thank you - arigato. Today was 3 - 3 which meant it was a holiday in Japan, it is girl's day. She told us one story while showing us beautiful illustrations. Then we were able to purchase a piece of candy. Then she read us Tasty Baby Belly Buttons - a story about a girl born of a melon that fought the oni to rescue the babies.

At the end of the day, we attended the school wide assembly to celebrate reading. We shared our slide show about all of the wonderful reading we did throughout the week. Then we enjoyed a fun skit put on by the teachers - Green Eggs and Ham  - BES edition. What fun!
