The second part of this assignment is to write a summary of the story they choose. Summarizing is an important reading and writing skill. We will be teaching and practicing this skill in the coming week, and students will be required to re-read and summarize a story. When they finish, they will work with their groups to complete the diorama. You can read more about the assignment below.
Also this month, students will work on replies for their pen pals. We received another batch of letters from our pen pals in San Francisco this week. The students are looking forward to telling their long-distance friends all about their upcoming Chinese New Year plans!
