daw.com - January 26
Our writing unit has seen us move toward our final drafts. This first FANTASY piece is called A Day at the Beach where I supplied the setting for the short story and the students did the rest. We looked at some of the components of a good fantasy story and also at something called the Hero's Journey as students studied what was needed for their story. I have set a date of next Friday for the final draft to be handed in.
Next week we will have our China-Link activities for our unit in wellness. This involves being in the cooking lab twice, learning Tai-Chi, participating in flower arranging, calligraphy and the Chinese Tea Ceremony as well as some other activities that relate both to China and our wellness unit. Every year we do this it is a highlight for the students. Look forward to some interesting conversations about this.
We are approaching Chinese New Year and I know that many people travel for this holiday. If you need to pull your student out early or come back late please let me know so I can plan accordingly. Just an email is all I need. Thank-you in advance for this.
That is all for this week. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me and I will gladly set up a time to meet with you.
