This week we will celebrate Artigras! Thursday children are invited to dress in cultural clothes (theirs or another country’s) on Thursday as KISPA will hold a cultural showcase.
Last week’s focus:
- Math: During ICT Mr. Eric introduced the children to OSMOS. They used ipads and tangrams to create images. The students also continued in the Makers Space with their woodworking; measuring, counting, and creating shapes to change their piece of wood.
- Language Arts: Students are planning their next project in the Makers Space and wrote their plans last week. Students have daily reading time and centers based around literacy. Last week students used playdough to form letters.
Last week we focused on metal as a material for our UOI, “Exploring Materials.” Students played with magnets, made music, and created beautiful art with metal. We will continue working with metal this week, however our focus will be on natural materials. If your child did not bring an artifact today, please encourage them to bring one in tomorrow.
Please be sure your child is using the material bag they decorated to bring artifacts to and from school. We are still seeing artifacts come in plastic bags 🙁
Outdoor play has been a lot of fun! Girl has been practicing yoga and showed us some amazing positions! She is balanced and strong!
Lira has been practicing gymnastics and encouraging others to try back bends!
Aerin has been practicing Taekwondo and informed us she has a test coming up. Good luck Aerin!
We celebrated a birthday last week. Happy 5th Birthday Rintaro!
