I have truly enjoyed teaching your children this year. They are a wonderful bunch and I am so proud of each and every one of them. I also appreciate your support and I am honored to work with such dedicated and caring parents. Thank you for being part of such a wonderful year.
Thank you for joining us for our presentations. I am so impressed with the amount of work they put into their presentations and the new skills they’ve learned. These will be very useful in the future! Here are the links to Linh’s website on technology use by children and Sienna’s website on Healthy Eating. All videos can be found on the UNIS Hanoi Elementary Youtube Channel.
As we start the summer, several parents have asked for resources where their children can continue learning. Most importantly, read often and find math in everyday life. As always, there are many resources on the G4 Learning Space and students have accounts for many online tools.
Khan Academy Mappers: Students can input their latest MAPS scores and build upon suggested areas. Learn Zillion has many lessons and videos that support our curriculum. Math Playground has many games to help students review their learning in grade 4 or they can challenge themselves to play some 5th or 6th grade games.
If your child is very ambitious, they might want to enter the K-12 Gameathon contest which encourages students to think critically and creatively to design a game that solves a mathematical problem. They can invent card games, board games, apps, outdoor games or anything else.
Once again, the best thing you can do is play fun math games and read a lot! If your child needs to spice up their reading, check out this reading Bingo! If you need some fresh ideas, check out UNIS’s Recommended Book Lists.
Our final day was filled with lots of laughter and appreciation of each other. Here are a few pictures of our class and a hilarious game of “Hug Tag.” Have a wonderful summer!
