We are following the Unique theme for this week and talking about peacekeepers. We looked up several peacekeepers who won the Nobel Peace Prize, like MLK, Betty Williams, and Nelson Mandela. We have students on the front and back who helped us celebrate these amazing peacekeepers. Take a look!

We’re celebrating Australia Day a little bit late, but better late than never! We learned a lot of neat facts about Australia. There are lots of cool sites to see like Ayers Rock and the Great Barrier Reef. There are even pink salt lakes! We have a couple of our students who are on the front and back of the book decked out in their Australian gear and enjoying the Outback. Check it out!

Holy cuteness!! We have such an adorable book for this weeks theme. We decided to celebrate National Popcorn Day(1/19) by talking about the different movies we love.

You’ll have to read to find out what other movies we love!

Who can resist chocolate?! We jumped at the chance to celebrate National Bittersweet Chocolate Day, which is January 10. Our book talks about some really neat chocolate facts. Did you know that cocoa beans used to be used as currency? Do you know how many cocoa beans it takes to make a pound of chocolate? You’ll have to read the book to find out!

For the new year, we’re taking a look back at the 1950s. We found lots of neat things that happened during the ’50s like the invention of TV dinners, the creation of the Mickey Mouse Club tv show, and the welcoming of the 50th state of the United States. We found a few other things too. You’ll have to read the book to find out what those are 🙂 We have one of our students attending a sock hop on the front of the book and another one of our students dressed as Lucy from the I Love Lucy show on the back. Enjoy!

Tis the season! Our theme this week is A Christmas Carol. Each page features one of our students dressed as a character from the book. The background on each page was painted in art with our art teacher Judy and some of her students. It’s so great and we love it! Joy put together some pretty terrific costumes also that you don’t want to miss!

International Ninja Day is December 5, so we learned all about ninjas this week! We learned so many things that we never knew about ninjas. Although they have many tools, their most important tool was actually an insect! They also were able to tell time in a very unique way. You’ll have to read the book to find out how 🙂 We have 2 of our very own ninjas on the front and back of the book too. Check it out!
