Celebrate: Reading Night!
TIS families and staff came together on April 25 for Celebrate: Reading Night! The evening was filled with fascinating read-alouds such as Swimmy by Leo Leonny, The Quiltmaker’s Gift by Jeff Baum and Goldie socks and three Libearians by Jackie M. Hopkins. Activities involved making Eric Carle creatures, tissue paper collages, poetry reading, scavenger hunt, ponded flower bookmarks, finger puppets, dramatic read-alouds, and creating silly stories. Thank you to all the families that came out to our Reading Night!
On April 23 three elementary classes joined Mrs. Liesl for a story time in Afrikaans. Mrs. Liesl also taught students how to pronounce letters R and G, which was quite interesting and challenging. This week student will join Mrs. Tamami for a story time in Japanese. Mrs. Tamami will share a story by Allen Say titled “Tea with no Milk”. This is a story about cultural differences and how sometimes transitions and moves to a different country might not be easy, but we can adjust as long as we try our best.
