We had wonderful coffee meeting this morning, where the parents had a chance to experience the same type of math assessment that our G2 students do each week.

On Monday, we did a Tuning In provocation for our new unit – Event Planning – and the students individually came up with how different events are planned and what the steps are that we need to take to ensure that they’ll be successful.

Last Wednesday the students dressed up as their favorite book characters. We were blown away by their creativity and were quite happy when they shared which books they loved to read and why they were their favorite books.

Hot School Days

The temperature and the heat index have been quite high/hot lately. Please remember to make sure your child comes to school with a water bottle.

If you want to send a hat for them to wear during playtime to protect them from the sun, then that would be acceptable as well.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Thanks!

Welcome back! We hope everyone had a very restful and fun holiday. We are excited to get started on our final UOI of the year – How We Organize Ourselves.  This week, we will finish up our previous UOI – How We Express Ourselves – and we will begin the Tuning In to our new unit near the end of the week.

Today – Monday, April 22 – is Earth Day. G2 is in charge of trying to spread awareness about it in the the primary school.  It’d be great if parents could take a little time to talk their children about Earth Day and discuss why it’s important and things that they can do as a family to help lessen our negative impact on the Earth.

Learning Engagements

This week’s learning engagements include:

UOI – Making Conclusions – How We Express Ourselves

Language Arts – Story-writing elements; Playscripts

Math – 2D and 3D shapes; Addition strategies

 

Upcoming dates

Monday, April 22 – Earth Day

Tuesday, April 23 – Book Character Dress-up Day (Students are encouraged dress up as their favorite book character.)

Tuesday, April 30 – Coffee Meeting – 8:00 am.

Spring Break Homework

We hope that everyone has a wonderfully fun and safe holiday!

We have asked the students to do something different this year. This is a journal where all they need to do is to write down the best thing that happened on that day.

For example – Friday, April 12 – I flew on a plane to Singapore.

Or –   Sunday, April 14 – We had my favorite dinner – Cuban sandwiches!

Please encourage your child to just write down one thing during 8 or 9 days of their vacation.

Thanks!

Last week we talked about how we could go further and take action with what we had been learning about how artists manipulate elements to create dramatic sensory.

We visited the IB exhibition in the secondary school and we were really impressed with how talented our older KIS students are. I think quite a few of our G2 students felt inspired by the artwork that we saw there.


We have continued to have Passion Time, where we try different mediums to express ourselves each day. A lot of the students have been risk-takers and are trying new things that they have never thought about doing before, and they’re discovering that actually enjoy doing different styles of painting, or acting, or miming, or making origami.


And here are some images from Chinese New Year.

 

This week -No Homework!
