Children Full of Life

To make up for my absence, I’m posting this inspirational documentary about a 4th grade class in Japan. It focuses on their Notebook Letters where they can freely write about anything that they can share to the class. It moved me because I know that in Japan, schools are mostly very traditional however, this teacher was able to have activities that not only focus on the cognitive but at the socio-emotional as well..  Watch out for the reasons why I was gone for so long!
