Celebration of Learning

On Friday, May 3rd, Emma’s class had their “Celebration of Learning.”  This was a very fun time for Emma and her classmates to perform and show their parents what they had learned throughout the year in both English and Chinese.  We were SO BUMMED that Robin was in Oregon and had to miss out on Emma’s special day.   Luckily, Nana took a personal day at work and was able to come.  That made Emma feel a little bit better about Daddy not being there.

The morning started in Emma’s Chinese classroom where the kids sang several songs in Chinese, they read us a book in Chinese, and they demonstrated how their class time works each day.  Emma’s teacher never spoke a word of English- only Mandarin Chinese… and the kids understood everything she was saying!  It was pretty amazing to watch!

They made these writings for the hallways- based on The Grouchy Ladybug… their teacher took a picture of them with a “grouchy face” and then had them write what makes them grouchy.  This cracks me up because Emma put that it makes her grouchy when her brother bites her and her brother takes her toys.  He has actual never done either of these things!  I think she copied off of a friend’s paper!

They had to pick an insect and research the insect with a partner.  Here is Grant and Emma’s butterfly project.

Mrs. McDaniel made a slideshow for the kids including great pictures from the entire school year.  It was so awesome and we now have a copy to keep.  This has been a great year for Emma.  We feel so thankful for her teachers and her school.
