Looking Forward to the International Festival!

Chilton House Kindergartners have been busy getting ready for the International Festival through classroom and library activities!  In Ms. Lowell and Ms.Su's classroom, parent volunteers read the book Children From Around the World, and helped the class make beautiful masks representing different cultures. In the library, Mrs. Goldstein read the book Peace, by Karen Katz, to discuss the concept of peace and expose children to the word ‘peace’ in different languages. Students then cut and assembled their own pre-made books to take home.  Through this activity, they gained the opportunity to practice seeing, saying and writing the word 'peace' in many languages. ~Mrs. Goldstein

Mask making...

Not to be outdone, Mr. Cooper and the many wonderful volunteers also took some time out to make masks/decorations for Saturday's International Festival.

The children (and grown-ups) are very excited about the upcoming festival!  We hope to see everyone there this Saturday, January 28, from 12:00-2:00 in the Gymkhana!
