Reading at Home

Dear Parents,

Today your child brought home their library folders containing 2 self-selected books from the PYP library along with 1 ORT (Oxford Reading Tree) book.

This letter explains how you could use the ORT book to help your child learn to read, or if your child is already reading, practice telling the story using only the pictures.
Here’s what to do:
Choose a quiet time to share the story.
Look at the cover. Talk about what the story might be about.
Look at the pictures in the storybook. Talk about them and tell the story together.
If the storybook has sentences on the page, cover them up while you do a ‘picture walk’ through the book before reading the story with your child (example photos below).
20932CF6-CEAE-4C02-B0EC-A7ABA51E9E6D 1F4ABB8F-A979-41B0-AF89-0872CA1349FA 25830CDD-CA25-44D2-AA9B-70B38CBFB3CD 84FAB79F-0EF2-45DC-B579-87E5AB6BD2A2 6961D6D9-BDA0-4BBE-8F63-18C57478C69A 06CBA1D1-819F-486C-A39B-30D39EE2C097
Remember! Reading should be fun and you don’t have to follow every step every time.
At this stage…
Your child will use the pictures as a clue. Don’t cover them up.
Your child may guess the sentences. Don’t try to stop this.
Your child may learn the sentences off-by-heart. Don’t worry if this happens.
The stories are fun to read with humorous drawings that adults usually like as much as
children. I hope you will enjoy reading them with your child, and helping him/her to become a confident reader.
Yours sincerely,
ORTserieslogo

Week #8: Sept. 30th – Oct. 4th

Grade 4 Assembly
Congratulations to Pranvat, Oscar, and Ava.
20190927_084604 20190927_084627 20190927_084647 20190927_084617
Last Friday they were the EY3 recipients of the QLB (Quality Learning Behaviours) certificates. Thank you for being positive role models for your fellow classmates.

We also shared a video from our House Spirit Day which took place a couple of weeks ago.

Literacy
Reading Buddies: Last Friday our G10 reading buddies visited us once again and we got to spend some time sharing our library books with them. We also got to spend a little time with them outside on the playground.


We are working on building relationships with them and getting to know them better. Many of them wore their house shirts that day, so we were able to connect with them that way. We enjoy spending time with them.

Letter Formation – Students explored patterns in letter formation through practicing the Frog Jump Capitals (F E D P B R N M) in different ways.

They used the WetDryTry app as well as sensory materials to recreate the letters.

Later this week, students will be writing these letters in their Printing Practice Booklets.

Global Read-Aloud:  This week marks the start of our Global Read Aloud (GRA).
This year’s author is Yuyi Morales from Mexico, and the first story of hers that we are reading this week is called Dreamers.

51FnWscsPwL._SX414_BO1,204,203,200_The book Dreamers is about making a home in a new place. Yuyi and her son Kelly’s passage was not easy, and Yuyi spoke no English whatsoever at the time. But together, they found an unexpected, unbelievable place: the public library. There, book by book, they untangled the language of this strange new land, and learned to make their home within it.

Dreamers is a celebration of what migrantes bring with them when they leave their homes. It’s a story about family. And it’s a story to remind us that we are all dreamers, bringing our own gifts wherever we roam. (Amazon.uk)

We will be reading a few additional books by this author. If you want to know more about her, please click on the following link:

EY3 Garden
Last Wednesday morning EY3 students had the opportunity to explore various roles in our garden.

Many of the students enjoyed this and worked hard to help one another and Ms. Nok in getting our garden up and running.

The following day we had a mini-reflection for our morning sign-in:

Thank you, students, for your enthusiasm.

* * * * *

Unit of Inquiry
One of the ATLs (Approaches To Learning) we’re working on is communication skills. One way you can support this is to practice at home by speaking to your child about what’s going on in school during the day.

seesaw-script-iconIf you sign in to the Seesaw app, the photos and videos there can be used as a provocation to help generate questions about what the students are doing.
Here are a few examples:

“Who are your friends at school?”
“What are you doing in this photo?”
“Did you enjoy this activity? Why (or why not)?”

If you are having any issues accessing Seesaw, please send us an email to let us know and we can help you out.

Data Management
Last week we began learning about tally marks and how they can be used for collecting information/data. Here is a video we looked at that explained how we use them.

EY3 Garden
Last week, EY3 students helped Ms. Nok prepare our Mushroom House in the EY3 garden. Yesterday we had a mushroom mini-harvest. At dismissal time, parents and other caregivers gave donations in exchange for mushrooms to help support our garden.

* * * * *

Unit of Inquiry
During this unit, Who We Are, the students spend time exploring the key concepts causation, perspective and responsibility.  Here are a few interesting articles that are connecting to the key concepts and what you can do at home to strengthen your child’s understanding of them:

Perspective: “The understanding that knowledge is moderated by different points of view which lead to different interpretations, understandings and findings; perspectives may be individual, group, cultural or subject-specific.

https://www.canr.msu.edu/news/the_importance_of_perspective_taking_for_young_children

Causation: “The understanding that things do not just happen; there are causal relationships at work, and that actions have consequences.”

https://www.verywellfamily.com/teaching-kids-about-cause-and-effect-2086659

Responsibility: “The understanding that people make choices based on their understandings, beliefs and values, and the actions they take as a result do make a difference.”

https://www.ahaparenting.com/parenting-tools/character/responsibility

* * * * *

Literacy
Students have been exploring letter-sound relationships and how to blend sounds together. Through read-alouds, students have been strengthening their skills by identifying connections, making predictions and learning about different points of view.

* * * * *

Data Management
EY3 students have been inquiring into relationships and getting to know one another. During a class discussions, one of our students mentioned that learning about what we have in common with others helps our relationships grow.

Students have been creating different diagrams and are learning how to ask questions as a way of gathering information about one another. Some of the questions students have been asking are:

How old are you?
What’s your favourite flavour of ice cream?
Do you have brothers or sisters?

We are currently working together to organize information about who has siblings in a Venn diagram. Students also asked Ms. Nok, Ms. Ploy, Ms. Helen, Ms. Magda, Ms. Pensri, Ms. Mint, and Ms. Rachel questions to find out where they belong on the diagram.

Dot Day Today
The Dot is a book by Peter H. Reynolds.

51D4P7193SL._SX471_BO1,204,203,200_In this inspiring, award-winning story of self-expression and creativity from Peter H. Reynolds, Vashti thinks she can’t draw. But her teacher is sure that she can. She knows that there’s creative spirit in everyone, and encourages Vashti to sign the angry dot she makes in frustration on a piece of paper. This act makes Vashti look at herself a little differently, and helps her discover that where there’s a dot there’s a way… With wit, charm and free-spirited illustrations, Peter H. Reynolds encourages even the stubbornly uncreative among us to make a mark – and follow where it takes us.


Thank you, parents, for supporting Dot Day today. The students participated in a variety of dot craft activities activities in class as well as a group activity with Mr. Matt. Students used coloured bottle caps and worked together to help create a couple of floor mosaics in the Atrium.

At the end of the day, PYP students and teachers met in the Atrium for an acoustic sing-along of The Dot Song.

Numeracy Connections at Home
Here are some ideas you can do at home to help strengthen your child’s number skills:

  • Ask your child one more/one less from a given number- most students will not go past 20 at this time. If you feel that your child can go past 20, go for it!
  • Ask your child to count out items in your home-spoons, forks, cups etc. Next, you can ask them which item you have more than/few than.
  • Give problems for your child to solve when cooking, shopping, making models etc. For example, you can say, “There are 6 eggs in the box. Our recipe will use 4. How many eggs will be left?  “If there was one more/one less eggs in the box, how many would there be?”
  • Sorting/ organizing items into two groups. Next, ask your child to explain why he/she sorted it the way he/she did.
  • Play War or Snap with your child (2 person card game)

Unit of Inquiry #1 – Who We Are
Thank you very much for your support in helping your children choose artifacts that represent their hobbies/passions. Every student now has one or more artifacts here in class and we are in the process of giving them opportunities to tell us about them through presentations and/or interviews with their peers and teachers.

Literacy
Reading Buddies

This Friday we will meet with our Grade 10 Reading Buddies once again. We look forward to their second visit.

Writing (Handwriting)
Students have begun looking at letter formation and stroke order. We have begun with the ‘Frog Jump Capitals’: F E D P B R N M. When we write these letters, we start at the top, make a straight line down, then jump back up to the top where we started to complete the letter. See video below (no audio).

Kids A-Z
By now you would have all received information for your child’s Kids A-Z login and password information. Kids A-Z

If you are having any problems with this process or you have any questions or concerns, please send us an email to let us know.

Numeracy: Data Management in EY3
Students have been collecting and organizing data in their Daily Data Booklets and are beginning to make connections to patterns (line leader and lucky last), number (daily attendance, days in school), measurement (time/calendar/days of the week).

7074DBCD-31F1-4CC9-A5B1-4DD83204887F  3B7FFB73-5EED-49FD-A5D1-9661A5F5D03B BF7CDE2A-D3CA-45A6-903B-04A77076AEAE  5CF568B8-3610-4867-9DE4-C4602FC8A7A2

We have also been looking at different ways of organizing data. We took a survey asking the question, “When is your birthday?” and created a pictograph of the results. Students are learning what elements are necessary to make organized data easy to understand and interpret.

Labelling
Please label all of your child’s belongings. Tuesdays are especially challenging with swimming and after-school activities. There are still many water bottles and items of clothing that don’t have names written on them. It really makes a big difference and would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Spare Clothes
We received a donation of KIS swim clothes and uniforms that one of our students has outgrown. Thank you very much to Ren’s mom for this. They have already come in handy.

We had an incredible turnout last week. Our provocation area looks great and the students are very curious about their classmates’ artifacts. We will be spending time this week and next week talking to the students about their artifacts and how they demonstrate their passions/interests.  Thank you, parents, for supporting your children’s learning.

46150B34-828A-4AB2-AE15-EA3F5E58387F

We are still waiting for a handful of artifacts to come in. If your child hasn’t yet brought in his/her artifact, please do so as soon as possible. It is an important element in our Unit of Inquiry.

Literacy: Reading Buddies
Last Friday our Grade 10 Reading Buddies came to visit us in EY3 for the first time.

Students enjoyed sharing their library books and listening to stories with our new Grade 10 friends. A big thank you to Ms. Kat and her students: Nadia, Prae, Nana, Henry, Itsuki, Lya, Aaryan, Kym, Tiffany, Angie, Roxy, Fah, Idea, Earth, Ivy, and Tilda, for coming to spend time with us.

Numeracy: Data Management in EY3
In addition to our classroom charts for swimming and library folders, students have their own Daily Data Booklets in which they are beginning to document information related to the calendar, the number of days in school, classroom jobs, and our daily attendance.

New EY3 Student
We have a new classmate, Pengpeng, who joined EY3B this week.

EY3B - Pengpeng - Version 2

Please join us in welcoming him to Early Years 3.

* * * * *

Our Essential Agreement
EY3 students had a busy week last week practicing daily routines and getting to know their new classmates.

We also worked together to develop our classroom agreement:

In EY3, we promise to:
– Share ideas and be caring
– Be principled
– Be risk takers and always try our best

We encourage parents to talk to your child about how they can and are demonstrating these behaviours at school and at home.

As teachers, we have also promised the EY3 students that we will keep to the agreements and model actions that make our community better. We thank you for your support in showing the children in such positive ways what a healthy, active and enthusiastic community can be.

* * * * *

Unit of Inquiry #1 – Who We Are
Artifacts – At the beginning of each unit of inquiry, we will be asking students to bring in artifacts, which help them begin to make connections to what we are learning.

For the first theme, Who We Are, each student is asked to bring in an artifact that demonstrates any of his/her passions/interests (like an object or a photograph). For example, if your child loves baseball, they could bring in a baseball mitt or a photo of them in a baseball outfit.

Your child should be able to tell us a little bit about their artifact.

We will be showcasing students’ artifacts in our Provocation Area (see photo below).
It’s pretty bare at the moment, so we are looking forward to filling it up.

CA192770-E78D-4269-AD5E-7FD4A09BEB93
Please start bringing/sending in artifacts right away.

We would like to have all artifacts in the classroom by this Friday 30th of August.
Thank you for supporting your child’s learning.

* * * * *

Data Management in EY3
In EY3, we are making connections to mathematical concepts relating to data management through simple graphing (see slideshow).

Each week, students will add a sticker to our swim charts and library charts. These charts are a visual representation of students who went swimming (or who didn’t swim that day), students who returned their library books, or students who were absent on that day. Using these charts is one way of collecting and organizing data, and helps students begin to recognize patterns and interpret data.

* * * * *

Personal Non-Essential Items
Items such as toys, jewelry (non-religious), stickers, Pokemon cards, Shopkins, etc. are best left at home. Please do not bring them to school. Please check your child’s backpack to make sure they are bringing only what they need during the school day.

* * * * *

Student Cubbies
From time to time, students bring in items to distribute to their classmates. If you have something to hand out, please let us know ahead of time, and ensure that there is enough for every student in the classroom. On arrival, please give the items to one of the classroom teachers or EAs and we will distribute them at an appropriate time.

Please do not place any items in students’ cubbies.

Any gift-giving that is personal is best done outside of school.

Students’ Personal Items
“Label, label, label…” We cannot emphasize this enough.
Everything that belongs to your child (including swimming supplies) needs to be labeled with his/her name, whether it be written in permanent marker, stitched/embroidered, or a personalized name tag.

Splash SwimmingStudents should bring their swimming supplies (towel, goggles, swim cap, underwear) in a separate bag, preferably something plastic/waterproof to put their wet stuff into afterwards.
A student’s towel should be large enough to dry off completely and wrap around his/her body.

* * * * *

Kids A-Z Reading
We are currently assessing students’ reading levels. Kids A-ZOnce that is done, you will receive your child’s personal Kids A-Z login information. Stay tuned…

An important note about birthdays…

NoNutsRegarding birthday celebrations, if you are bringing in treats for your child to share with his/her classmates, please ensure that they contain NO NUTS or nut oils.

Birthdays are celebrated in the cafeteria during our second snack break. Please let us know at least one day beforehand if you wish for your child to celebrate his/her birthday at school.

Birthday treats are easily distributed when they are pre-cut and ready to share.
Birthday TreatsSome birthday treats like doughnuts, cupcakes, cake pops, cookies, pizza, fruit etc. are very easy to distribute and are usually an appropriate size for small tummies.

Please bring one flavour of treat. This will help us keep things simple. For example, if you bring cupcakes, bring all one flavor (chocolate OR vanilla). If you bring doughnuts, bring all one kind (glazed OR sprinkle).

Please keep these guidelines in mind for future reference.

* * * * *

Morning Arrival/Late Arrival/Absences
Students who arrive to school early (before 7:30am) should remain in the PYP atrium until supervision begins.

At 7:30am, students are to head outside for their morning play time.

Students who arrive at school between 7:30am should put their belongings in their cubbies, water bottles in the basket, and head outside to the playground straight away.

When the morning bell rings at 7:50am, students should already be outside.

Any student who arrives after 8:00am should first head to the elementary office to pick up a late slip before coming to the classroom. If someone other than a parent is dropping of your child, please be sure to tell them this.

If you know that your child will be absent on any given day, please send an email to Ms. Aim in the PYP office at sissadee@kis.ac.th to let her know the reason. Please CC us on your message.

Thank you for your support.

Welcome to EY3

Welcome to the new school year!
This year in EY3 we have 35 returning students and 14 new students.
We would like to extend a warm welcome to the following students who are new to KIS:
EY3A – Jasmine, Kacy, Pete, and Pranvat
EY3B – Ada, Janvi, Motto, Sky, and Zeina
EY3C – Ava, Justin, Kin, Paris, and Penne

By now you should have received a copy of our class schedules.
If not, you can find them at the following link: EY3 Schedule (annotated)

NOTE: No swimming classes on the first day of school (Tues. 13th Aug.).
EY3A and EY3B students should wear their PE uniforms on Tuesday 13th.
EY3C students are to wear their regular school uniform.

Arrival
When students arrive in the morning, they put their backpacks in their cubbies and their water bottles in the crates (each of which is marked with Class A, B, or C) on the table outside our classroom door. They then head outside to the playground. Morning supervision starts at 7:30am and the children have outside play time until 7:50am when the bell rings. We then line up by class outside before heading into the classroom.

NOTE: Students are to go to their classrooms at 7:30 AM on the first day of school. If your child arrives after 7:30, please bring them straight to EY3.

Dismissal
Children are dismissed at 2:30pm and are signed out by parents/guardians and remain with that adult until they leave school premises. At 2:45pm, remaining students are taken to the library for supervision and are signed out from there.
