Ms. Shannon read Strega Nona to the group and then we discussed Italian words.
We learned some Italian words and did this pinterest inspired Morning Message:
After reading about all that pasta, we had some fun with pasta at centers.
We sorted pasta at the math table.
Next, we made Italian sodas. Traditionally, these aren't really Italian, but the idea of them is a spin off of a type of drink they used to make with fruit. Either way, they were still yum.
We also read these beautiful books about Rome and Venice.
