Last Friday was Multicultural Day at SCE. Students enjoyed a performance by Eric "The Fish" Paton. He taught us about different instruments from around the world and we were even able to perform on the drums! That afternoon, Mr. Govindwar visited our classroom and taught us about Ghandi and his philosophy of nonviolence. It led to great discussion about being kind to one another.
After reading books this week, we practiced making text-to-text connections. Sometimes making a connection to an event or an emotion from a book we've previously read will help us understand, and even make predictions, about the book we are reading now. After reading two books, The Two of Them and Now One Foot, Now the Other, we made a venn diagram to compare the two books.
