Today, the students had a lot of fun learning about the country we live in.  They had a chance to make and taste turon which is deep fried banana rolls (a typical Filipino merienda or dessert) .  They were so enthusiastic as they were making their pamaypays (fans)!  It was definitely a memorable experience as students danced along with the tapping of the bamboos in the tinikling  dance and walked around using coconut shells as slippers.  Students were also able to learn a bit of Tagalog with Mrs. Atkinson and Ms. Cha.  We finished the day off riding the jeepney and cooling down by tasting some Filipino flavored ice cream.  I will let the pictures give you a better glimpse.  Enjoy!
