In my opinion, books are the best accessory.
I enjoyed starting to reorganize the library’s language area. We have had so many new language books that were donated now finally catalogued and processed… time to make room for them on the shelves! What languages are represented in your library? Here’s what’s at my school:
SWEDISH, JAPANESE, PORTUGUESE, DUTCH, ITALIAN, FRENCH, MAORI, TAGALOG, GUJARATI, HINDI, KOREAN, INDONESIAN, THAI, VIETNAMESE, SPANISH, GERMAN, CHINESE
Most of the books were donated by families who either speak the language or also from those who have traveled on holiday and picked up a book or two from the library. Nice to be able to accommodate readers.
Random thoughts from school for this week: pollution is terrible, you can see the poor air quality. Art has also been a focus with my Y5 students, I showed the mask making in last week’s post. Now, more art was on display in an exhibition. Quite beautiful and overwhelming.
I really enjoyed the lion dance this year. Things are starting to feel a little more dear to me since we are moving back to Oregon in July. This year the lion dance felt more impressive because the talented risk-takers climbed up a pole and danced up on that pole for quite some time… plus there were confetti and bubbles which always entertains.
Another date night my husband and I went to Jamie Oliver’s restaurant again, enjoyed the ravioli quite a bit. We wandered around Causeway Bay for a little bit and found a new-to-us place called Dessert Playground. We tried out mango with sticky rice there, yummy and reasonably priced. The place sure celebrated this stinky fruit called durian though. They had some odd creations using the fruit.
Finally, we went to Times Square in Causeway Bay to look at the display of dragons which was quite cool. Walking through history is always fascinating.
I also went to Central Hong Kong and walked over to see the display of sheep that I just knew would be entertaining. Not disappointed.
Hope you have good adventures in your areas!
