Today is International Day for our upper elementary students. Many kids dressed up to represent their home country. Later today, they’ll share traditional food.
The kids were playing outside before the bell rang. I went out to take photos and David had morning duty. David dressed up like a farmer to represent America. He grabbed a stalk of some plant to substitute for a piece of wheat and stuck it behind his ear.
I noticed one of our ESL first graders looking very confused.
“What’s wrong?” I asked him. “What are you looking at?”
“What is Mr. Benedict doing with… that little tree?”
