We learned that the Japanese have 3 alphabets. We made headband type things. They had our names on them in Japanese on them. We wrote it in ink. Then we put on our headband. They had to teach us to bow when meet someone new.

Last week, we made headbands with Japanese writing on it. My favorite part was making origami. We made a piano and a swan. We used colorful paper. The origami was easy and hard at the same time. I learned a Japanese dance. There was clapping, digging and covering your eyes. The music was slow. I also learned how to write my name in Japanese. They wrote our name in Japanese and we could practice writing it. We used fans, pencils and ink. We had to have a bow.

Last week, we went on a field trip to the Japanese Cultural Centre. When we first got there, we talked about the rules and things. They said we have to go into groups of five or four. First, we made origami. We made a piano and a talking bird. The talking bird was cool! I already knew how to make a piano, so that was cool. We all made headbands with Japanese writing on them.
