Our Buddy Grandfather Tang

First! Thank you to the kind friends who left me nice comments yesterday about my presidential dilemma! It was really weighing heavily on my heart and I felt a lot better knowing that you all would have said what I did! And that I'm not alone in this world. :)

Moving on, Grandfather Tang made an appearance today in our room!
None of my students have ever seen the book or tangrams before, so they were in for an experience today!

Thanks to Jen's sage advice, we only made the first three animals today. They were just starting to lose it at the end there so that was pretty perfect!

I knew that I wanted to give the kids a copy of the animal they were supposed to be making, but I had a hard time finding templates of the animals. Then I found this website from UNC! They have all of the templates ready for you to print or project! Awesome smawesome.

Here are some pictures of us doing our thing:

Can't wait to read the next few pages tomorrow! :) We also made paper lanterns but I forgot to take a picture! I will post those later. But not tomorrow, because tomorrow is ONE HUNDREDTH DAY!!!!!! I am so incredibly excited! I can't wait to write about it tomorrow!


  1. oh, I'm so glad it worked for you only doing a few a day! I can't believe that there are people out there that make the little ones do the whole book in a day! yikes!!
    And Thursday is our 100th day! I'm excited to see what my sub does for it :)
    The Teachers’ Cauldron

  2. We did almost the exact same thing yesterday!
