“Whatever else Memorial Day may be, it is a day for thought, for remembering those who have loved their country and loved its people.”

Eleanor Roosevelt

Fieldtrip Fun

Dance with Books Students and Chaperones greatly enjoyed the fieldtrip to the Boston Children’s Museum.  The museum is filled with educational and hands-on activities that spark students’ curiosity and keep them engaged.  Students explored the Japanese House which connected to the Dance with Books lessons on Japan, Yumika, and the book I Live in Tokyo.  There were activities for students to get healthy doses of exercise which included the climbing structure, shooting basketball hoops, and following a dancing light display.  Playing with the various water displays was also a big hit!
