Professional Development at UNIS
This weekend, the Grade 1 team along with the other ECC teachers at UNIS and 40 colleagues from all around Asia, had the pleasure of attending the EARCOS workshop Listening to Learning in the Early Years, presented by Fiona Zinn. Fiona is an Educational Consultant based in Hobart, Australia. Drawing on 25 years experience in the early childhood, primary and tertiary sectors, Fiona consults widely with International Schools around the world to boldly re-imagine early years and primary pedagogy, curriculum and learning environments in response to research. During our two-day weekend workshop, we explored some of the ideas that underpin the pedagogical experience of Reggio Emilia, investigated our ‘image of the child’ and shared some deep reflection on the importance of relationships within our schools. We also examined the role of provocation and documentation for our work with transnational children in international school contexts.

Digital Citizenship Fair
On Thursday, we went to the Grade 2 Digital Citizenship Fair to learn about different technology programs. Sharing our learning with each other is an important skill that we are learning about in Grade 1. We really learned many new things and provided some feedback about what we liked about the fair. Ask your child about Google Earth. We loved learning about this app and so many others.
We are very excited about our upcoming field trip to Fivimart on Monday. During our UOI we have been talking about making healthy choices. The students chose from a variety of options of what snack they wanted to buy at the store and make once we get back to class. Each group wrote out their recipe and has a plan of how to make their healthy snack. Here are two examples of the recipes and the snacks. Yummy!
Blue Dragon forms-if you have not turned in your Blue Dragon donation form and money, please send to school on Monday. Thank you to all of the families that donated. We are excited to see our final class number.
