Reading Schedule:

Monday- Apply Pie 4th of July by Janet Wong

Our discussion will center around how many cultures have different traditions, and how those traditions can be different or similar than the majority.  We will also discuss how students can embrace their own culture while learning about new cultures.

Tuesday- Chato's Kitchen by Gary Soto and Susan Guevara

This discussion will be focused on cross-cultural friendships.  We will also discuss how we can share cultural traditions with friends in many ways.

Wednesday- My Name is Yoon by Helen Recorvits

While reading this story, students will reflect on their roots and what traditions they carry with them.  Students will also be given an opportunity to discuss the struggles they face while spending time in a new environment.

Thursday- Tomás and the Library Lady by Pat Mora

Students will spend time determining why they speak in different ways to different people.  We will also discuss how learning through books can teach us many new things.

Friday- black is brown is tan by Arnold Adoff

Today we will celebrate racial differences!  Students will use the Crayola Multicultural Markers to create a self portrait that embraces their best features in an accurate and responsive way.

Field Trip

Dear Students and Families,

I have some exciting news for our classroom!  On June 5th, we will be participating in a field trip to the local historical site, Naper Settlement.  

Students will have the opportunity to explore the location in a hands-on manner and see various styles of homes from the late 1800s.  The guides at Naper Settlement are experts regarding the museums and have offered to present a “day in the life” simulation for students.  This experience directly ties in with our Social Studies and Literature units and will assist in students developing connections with the text.  

Departure: 9:45 AM
Return: 2:15 PM
Travel Form: Bus

The cost for the field trip will be $5.00 to assist in the bus fees.  I also ask that students bring a completely disposable lunch.  

Our classroom will need two parent chaperones.  If you are interested or have any questions, please contact me at 630-555-3345 or 

Miss Guido
