November 29th – Disco A

Dear parents,

As you know, last week the Discovery A blog did not get sent out. So this week will include info from last week and this week as well.

Thank you all so much for joining us for Open Classrooms last week. Your children enjoyed having you here to share in their learning. Please remember that you are always welcome into our classroom to read a story, play an instrument, cook or anything else you would like to share. Just send me an email and we can set up a time.

Speaking of, thank you to Emmanuel’s dad for coming in to read a couple of great books from home! Both Discovery classes thoroughly enjoyed it!

Last week Prayan’s mom and Gioulia’s mom (Discovery B) taught the children how to make pizza. They each rolled out their own mini pizza, added the delicious toppings, baked it and enjoyed!

Ms. Hang, Ms. Nhung and myself would like to say a heartfelt thank you for the kind words and treats you gave to us on Teacher’s Day. It’s an absolute joy to teach your children every day. It makes us smile and want to come to work every day.

This week, Ms, Thao was with us again from the 20/10 Vietnamese school. We have buddied up the children in our class with hers. So each of your children will get to know one or two buddies from her Discovery classroom. I will give you more details as this unfolds.

We have also planted a garden! The children pulled all of the weeds and roots from the garden bed, tilled it up with shovels and then planted some seeds. They planted carrots, broccoli, lettuce and fresh mint. Some of the seeds have already sprouted and so the children will be observing closely to see how the garden vegetables change during their growth cycle.

Our new Unit of Inquiry is all about materials. The children will learn to describe and explore different materials and think about how they can change materials into something else. For this unit, we are in need of some box construction materials. So any empty boxes, washed out milk or yogurt containers, or paper towel or toilet paper rolls would me much appreciated!

Here are some pictures of the week.

Have a fun weekend,

Deborah
