Earlier this year, our class combined with a PreK class from China and a first grade and second grade class from the USA to make this e-book. In it, each of the classes shared some of their celebrations.
We hope you enjoy reading it as much as the children enjoyed writing it. Just click on the image below to read it.
I really like the idea of collaborating with other students in other classrooms around the country. It really allows the students to see what other classrooms and students are like in the country.

I taught 4th grade for 35 years and was googling best educational blogs and yours came up first! Congratulations! I now write for kids and wondered if you'd help spread the word about my newest book, which is a great beginning of the year read for all elementary students. Ruth the Sleuth and The Messy Room encourages children to be more organized. What teacher doesn't need to push that point home? It was published by a new innovative publisher who wants to have books that help encourage specific character traits in children, being a mother of four herself. Here's the link to the book trailer, and thanks for being such a wonderful teacher. You help make the world a better place one student at a time! Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6IQeZaDUpt4

What a neat idea to foster writing and expose the children to celebrations and traditions around the world! I can't wait to see what y'all do next year!
