All about Los Angeles !

My name is Ashley and I am from Los Angeles, California. I work at Tagore as an English language assistant. Part of my job is to share my culture with the children. Currently, the 2nd grade students are learning about cities. I had the opportunity to share some of the important places in Los Angeles with them today. We talked about the zoo, aquarium, downtown, and the different types of museums in LA. One of the most special buildings we discussed was the Walt Disney Concert Hall pictured below. This building was designed by Frank Gehry. Another one of his famous works is the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain. This was a great opportunity for us to compare the two cities, Bilbao and Los Angeles.

A new week, a new book and a new month

Today we have been to the library again! Rakesh has been reading us a story. It is a wonderful story about a little boy talking about his daily routine. He talks about his family and what his Mum and Dad do for a living.

This book is very creative and has beautiful pictures to look at. It has simple sentences explaining about the daily routine.

This is a perfect present for a birthday present for your child, if you don't know what to buy for them!!!
