Recent days，the kids of second grade have been learning how to read the map，so there was a pirate day came in second grade of LILA. Yesterday the kids wore the costume of pirate and decorate themselves as pirate in school，looking forward to begin their adventure of finding the treasure.The kids got out of the classroom and found the first treasure map at 9：00 am.There were some question on the treasure map，once they found the correct answer ，they could disclose the riddle on the map.And once they decoded the riddle，they would know their next destination.And their next treasure map was on their way waiting for them . Finally，after decoded ten treasure map，the kids found their treasure case!
The hold of the pirate day really help the kid for learning the map in a interesting way.And I am really happy that I could have a awesome adventure as a pirate with these little pirates！
From these days ，the kids of our class began to make their own time line and had their Chinese presentation about the time line.Usually, the time line begins with the day they were born and ends in this year.When every kid made their presentation,the rest of them would listen it quietly and meticulously. And then after the kid who made the presentation finished it,the rest of the kids would put up their hands and asked questions or made comments.
Sharing is one of the very important part of the moring meeting，which helps improve the dynamic of their brain before they start the class.And the presentation helps them improve the ability of express and the confidence.And when I looked at their time line,I felt
they were really happy in childhood！
This week the kids from our class received the letter from the second grade kids of Taiwan.The kids of Taiwan said they hoped to become pen pals on the letter.The kids of Taiwan wrote the complicated tape of Chinese characters，but it didn’t affect the enthusiasm and excitement of the kids in our class. They circled the characters which they were not familiar with，and then they would ask me what is that and how to pronounce it.
I am really happy to see they read and explore the letter meticulously.It seems a good idea of learning for two different group of kids learn from each other and become good friend through the letter.Through the letter， they know how to communicate and learn from each other and they can also be involved in other’s culture. I am really pround of them!
Today some kids from fourth grade came to our second grade class and taught the kids from second about how to use the map. The thing which really surprised me was some of the kids of the fourth grade were very naughty ，but today they behaved meticulously when they taught the things about how to use the map，they acted really like a teacher~And I found out some of them are the elder brothers or elder sisters of my class.It seems like they are really a teacher in front of their younger brothers and younger sisters~
Today our second grade’s kids went to the field trip！They got on the bus at 8:00am，some of their parents were following them and instructing them.We arrived at the destination that a big park surronding by the mountain after one hour’s bus.Firstly，the staff of the park gived kids a lesson of how to useing the map and compass correctly，then kids divided into several groups and searched the park by their equipment and the instruction of some parents .On the way of the trip，we saw so many interesting things like the big turkey and the falcon.Finally,we arrived at a lake and had a great picnic.Looking at which the kids had gained ，I am so happy for them and pround of them!
这周一年一度的万圣节来到了，小朋友们无比的喜悦，大家全部将自己的各式各样的万圣节服装换上来庆祝这个无比有趣的节日，有的是超级英雄，有的是童话故事里的人物，还有的是现实的人物，像美国的总统候选人唐纳德 特朗普。 虽然在中国万圣节不会太受到人们的重视，但是在这里每年的万圣节都是十分有趣十分开心，我也很幸运能真正体验了在美国真正的万圣节。
The Halloween Day which only once a year came this week.Kids were really happy and excited about this.Almost every kid put on the new Halloween costumes to celebrate this important and hilarious day！Some of the costumes are the super heros ，some are characters in the fairy tale and some are the celebrities in the real world，like Donald Trump.In China people do not pay much concern about the Halloween Day，but here it is really fun in every year.And I am very lucky that I have this golden opportunity to experience that！
This kid is from my class.She donated 30 dollars which she had saved to the hungry people instead of buying the toys.When she was asked by her mother for why she wanted to do that,and the reply was“because that is what you do”.That reminds me a old Chinese advertisement which tells a story about a kid want to wash his mother’s feet after he saw the moment her mother was washing his grandmother’s feet.Parents have a great influence
on kids.As one of her teacher，I am really proud of her！
