Chúc Mừng Năm Mới
The students were vey happy to be back at school and have told us so many stories of their holiday adventures. We hope that you had a wonderful time on your holiday with family and friends.
This week in math, we continued to work on addition and subtraction but we learned to measure with standard and non standard units. In small groups, we measured many things in the classroom with cubes. As a whole class we estimated how many cubes it would be for the length of our classroom. We worked together to make the cubes and then had so much fun counting the cubes. It took 424 cubes.
We have begun to learn about a new writing genre- narrative / story telling. We made puppets of lots of different characters and have been practicing using our speaking skills to tell stories. The children are really enjoying using their imaginations and working together to create stories with characters, settings, problems and resolutions.
The children really enjoyed sharing their significant event photographs with each other. Please come in to the classroom and see the posters they have created. They look fantastic and all the children now understand the word, ‘significant’.
This week we had a very special guest be our Mystery Reader. Dr Barder came in and read us the story Odd Velvet by Mary Whitcomb. We loved the story and learned that Dr Barder’s first language is English and he speaks a little bit of many other languages including Spanish, French, Bahasa Malay and Vietnamese. Before Dr Barder left, he showed us a magic book that only Heads of Schools can have. What a fun treat to have him join us.
We are currently writing our ‘scripts’ for the wax museum, about our chosen significant people. Please help your child to organize their costume over the weekend. It needs to be brought into school on Monday. Remember to book Thursday the 15th, from 2:30-3:20 off work for our wax museum! You will not be disappointed!
- Please send costumes to school on Monday for your child’s Significant person. If you have any questions, please let me know.
