Pippi Longstocking Starts the School Year


The irrepressible Pippi Longstocking, known as Peppi Pitkätossu in Finnish, is the first theme of the year for English Class fourth graders. The fourth graders started their studies in Finnish class by learning about, and then making their own mind maps. They will go on exploring Pippi, the beloved sassy character created by the Swedish author, Astrid Lindgren,  by reading, crafting and doing drama in their Finnish classes. What an inspiring way to get back into the groove of learning Finnish!
