Sorry there is a technical glitch with embedding the photos from Google Photo albums at the moment so I have had to use a hyperlink instead. Here are the PHOTO’s from this week .
Global Goals Week
We had a great week of taking action towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Each day the students recorded positive action that they took for themselves, their classmates/friends and the environment. The students inspired each other every day to make positive decisions. The highlight of the week was the field trip to Soc Son. Students were hot and tired but they worked hard and cleaned up the beautiful lake area. They also learned about the impact of humans on the environment.
We had a HUGE help from KeepHanoiClean Organization. This organization was founded by James Kendall, a passionate activist for a cleaner planet. James came to support our Grade 4 Global Goal action, supplying us with clean-up equipment and devoting his time and effort!
Unfortunately, the tongs that we used for trash collections were stolen from where we left them for James to pick-up during our trip. We are thus asking for a small donation for Keep Hanoi Clean Organization to not only replace the stolen items, but also to support their effort in motivating, inspiring, and educating people about environmental protection.
You can directly contact James at email@example.com or send donations in with your child. Many thanks in advance.
UOI: We went on a field trip to Soc Son to study the impact of humans and nature on the environment. We also conducted weathering and erosion experiments using stream tables.
Writing: We learned how to structure a response text. Listen to our Seesaw post about the field trip to hear us read our latest response.
Reading: We worked in our new reading groups to establish reading goals and practice reading skills specific to our group.
Math: We continued to improve our accuracy in problem solving by practicing estimating as well as practicing identifying important information. We worked in small groups on targeted skills such as: subtraction with regrouping, improving our understanding of number values, fluency of number combinations to 20.
Game of the Week:
Are we there yet?
Purpose: To help students understand that subtraction is not just “taking away” it is also the difference between two numbers.
Materials: dice, and this worksheet alternatively you could just play with blank paper
Variations: Students who need more support with this should start by rolling only two dice and getting to 100. Students who need more of a challenge could add in another dice for decimals or choose a harder number than 1,000 to go to.
