Earlier this year Miss Mosconas and Ms. Kidder introduced their classes to the book Magic Ramen -The Story of Momofuku Ando. Ando was inspired by the long lines for food during WWII and set off to develop something that was quick and convenient for his community.
Students in these two classrooms read the story and learned about the true gift that comes with perseverance. Afterwards, students got to try eating ramen with chopsticks- many of which had never used the utensil before. I think it's safe to say the kids agree, peace comes from a full stomach!
