ANCIENT JAPAN COMES TO,;; HOG.&N,SM.ILLE ..Mr.s. ,ludl,,.,, vobihees, second grade stu-:' - dents at Hogansville Elemen- tary School took a trip to ancient Japan through a Magic Treehouse book titled "Dragon at Red Dawn" by Mary Pope Osborne. The characters in the book are looking for the secret of happiness. On their journey, they meet a stranger, who turns out to be a famous Japanese Haiku poet. The characters learn about Japanese culture, Haiku, and what they believe to be the secret of happi- ness..seeing little things in nature. In their Liierature cir- cle, students were given the opportunity to take on roles of discussion leader, word detective looking for interesting words in each chapter, illustrator, and sum- marizer. Students also researched Japan and made an infor- mational poster, talked about customs and traditions of Japanese culture, tried to use chopsticks to eat rice, took off their shoes as a sign of respect, talked about traditional Japanese Haiku, and learned about one of Japan's most famous Haiku poets, Basho. As their final celebration, Mrs. Voorhees painted her face white, a traditional practice for special ceremonies. Students painted Basho's famous poem on authentic rice paper, served each other rice crackers, and sampled a favorite candy of Japanese children. Students are now asking where they will visit next. Ironically, the culmination of their unit on ancient Japan was held on the day of the tragic earthquake and tsunami in Japan. TOP, Chloe Kraft and Chase Hammond copy Basho's Haiku on rice paper. ABOVE RIGHT, dressed in a kimono, Mrs. Judi Voorhees has painted her face white, indicating a special cerenlony.

QUEEN from page 1A "She (Kimberly) called up all her relatives and neighbors herself and asked for donations," said proud grandmother Pam Herndon. "And she just turned four," said her beaming mom, Kristy Reynolds.
