At our Open House tonight I was able to introduce our new student, Moji, who comes to us from Thailand via a year in Singapore, to many of our middle school families. Of course, we talked about our curriculum, especially our unit on Greek mythology, and I also showed our class blog and our Teddy blog to the parents. I shared some of the letters authors have written to the students. Everyone was interested to see where their children sat and to look at some of the books their kids are reading this year. I also assigned homework: check out our blog and write a comment. Here’s a question for all parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and any other family and friends of our students:
How has school changed since you were a student?
