Author's Tea Party = Success

Hello Friends,

Thanks to all who were able to attend our Author's Tea Party this Fun Friday morning. We had so much fun, and the kiddos were so excited to share their special writing with you all. They worked so hard to plan, and put into play this wonderful tea party.

Each kindergartner was the author and illustrator of a family book. The books were accordion style books- shaped like houses, and decorated to look like their own house. Each page was dedicated to something about their family. For example: "the people in my family are..." or "one of my family rules is....".

After our books were complete, we were ready to share! We planned our tea party, made invitations, baked, set up, even cleaned the classroom for our special day!

Thanks to Helen Norris who helped us make our special treats!



And we enjoyed our party!










Happy spring! Happy weekend!

Privet!

Privet!

This week we started something new in our classroom. We welcomed Alli and Erielle from Middlebury college to work with us on Friday mornings. They will be teaching us all about Russia including some of the language. We are so excited. This morning was our first meeting and we had fun!

First, we learned a little about Russia. Students were amazed by the size of the country! We learned about the flag, colored our own Russian flag, and colored a picture of traditional Russian clothing. We also watched a video of a cartoon that kindergarten kids in Russia love to watch!



We learned some Russian language too!


Privet!- Hello
Kak Dela- How are you doing?
Puckah- Goodbye
Spisibo- Thank you

We are excited to have our Middlebury College friends back next week when we take a look at the Russian alphabet!

Thanks Jen Stanley and Alli and Erielle for including us!

Happy Weekend!
