The 1st graders worked on the second unit of Learning by Storytelling from last month.  For this unit, they read the Russian folktale “The Big Turnip” in English.   They  tried to understand the plot in English through the activities and learned the new vocabulary and expressions in the story. 

They also practiced the Grand Tea Ceremony version of the story to perform for their parents on December 6th.   They practiced to recite the story aloud and perform together with gestures. 

The  1st graders prepared very well for their Grand Tea Ceremony.

All the students did their best.  

Good job, the 1st graders !!
