Giraffes Can't Dance

At Kauri Whanau Assembly today Jessica C and Sonia presented an explanation of our artwork.
Giraffes Can't Dance taught Room 18 how to expand their growth mindset. We are all participating and giving everything a go. Gerald the Giraffe taught us that we are all unique and to dance to our own tunes. The book inspired us to make these pictures of Gerald in his different dance motions. 
Special congratulations to Amy, Lawrence, Pasindu, Sonia and Jessica C!
