After reading this story, we filled in a chart on how we can show the 7 Principles in our everyday life.
I showed them my earrings, which were made by Mrs. Godbout here at school, and my students were impressed with Mrs. Godbout's kuumba! If Mrs. Godbout can make beautiful jewelry, so can we! And we'll make it educational too!

The chart we made will go outside our room, along with our pictures that we made today.
I can't wait to see my students enjoy their Kwanzaa celebration!
