We were flying high at Wright Middle School this afternoon! We continued to work with Shaun Tan's The Arrival, and due to popular demand, we decided to dedicate the majority of the class period to honing our origami skills! It is safe to say that after today, Wright Middle has some expert origami artists. Speed, precision, deft movements, and digital dexterity were all on display, and by the end of our time together we had so many origami cranes one would have thought they were roosting in the classroom.
Next week we will finish up working with The Arrival by reading the final two chapters, and then it is on to our next author, Kwame Alexander!
