Week #10: Oct. 18th – 22nd

Welcome back. We hope you all had an enjoyable October Break.

In Literacy, the students once again used their communication skills as they created journal entries about their October Break and retold the events making connections to question words such as Who?What?When?Where? Why?, and How?

.
The Benson Blues (cover page)Students also responded to the Kelso’s Choices story,  The Benson Blues, in which one of the characters is having a difficult time solving a small problem on her own. Students continued to make connections to the characters in the story, their own experiences, and shared their understanding of what we can do when we try Kelso’s Choices and it doesn’t work.

 

.
Screen Shot 2021-10-21 at 16.39.54Students listened to the story, Sneezy the Snowman, used their fine motor skills to illustrate images from the story, and used their communication skills to share their understanding of cause and effect by identifying what happened in the story that caused the snowman to melt.

Week #8: Sept. 27th – Oct. 1st

Thank you for another wonderful week of learning in EY3!

For our Unit of Inquiry, EY3 students began learning the difference between big problems and small problems and about solving small problems using Kelso’s Choices.
Kelso's Wheel1 (LGS)

Big problems are situations that cause us to be afraid, injured, or in danger. For big problems, it is necessary to seek help from an adult. However, if there is a small problem (i.e. a situation that makes us feel upset, bothered, annoyed, etc.), we can try to solve the problem on our own by trying two of Kelso’s Choices.
The video below, Kelso In Action, shows examples of each.

* * * * *

In Literacy, the students utilised their communication skills as they created journal entries about their weekends and retold the events making connections to question words such as Who?, What?, When?Where? Why?, and How?


.
This Is Our House
They also responded to the story This Is Our House by Michael Rosen: a simple and poignant tale of the power of sharing, and began to make connections to the characters in the story and to their own experiences.

In Numeracy students continued exploring Numicon through activities involving building the numbers 5 and 10 using combinations of different numbers, as well as filling in the number 20 using multiple pieces of the same number.

Students showed their understanding of the Numicon shapes and corresponding numbers. They also used their thinking skills to build a number of their choice.

Here are a few pics from our Friday FunZOOMs…

* * * * *

Coming up next week…
Literacy – We will continue to practice sharing our weekend recounts as well as responding to stories connected to Kelso’s Choices.

Math – We will delve into skills connected to data management such as using tally marks and bar graphs as well as sorting objects according to their attributes.

UOI – We will continue learning about choices and will look into generating questions to ask someone in our community about their responsibilities.

Week of 20th – 24th September

Dear EY3 Children and Families,

Thank you for another wonderful week of learning in EY3!

For our Unit of Inquiry, we continued to learn about responsibility. Students already have a good understanding of what responsibility means, therefore this week we discussed ways to take on new responsibilities. It was great to see a variety of responsibility goals on Seesaw linked to the home, the classroom, and the community. If you notice your child being responsible, it would be great if you could point out what a wonderful job they’re doing.

Screen Shot 2564-09-23 at 12.24.54

 

 

For Language Arts, the children developed communication skills as they created journal entries about their weekends. After the long weekend, they showed enthusiasm when retelling their exciting weekend events. Finally, they responded to the book “This is our House.” They showed creative thinking when responding as they were able to make connections to their own experiences.

 

This week in maths students were introduced to Numicon. Numicon shapes help children to see connections between Numicon shapes and numbers. Students explored and showed their understanding of the Numicon shape, number, and the corresponding number of objects. They also used their thinking skills to order them from smallest to largest and created magnificent pictures. They enjoyed learning about positional language. They practiced using positional language such as inside, outside, above, below, next to, behind, in front of, up, down.

 

This week we celebrated International Peace Day. In our morning meetings, we discussed the importance of peace, calmness, and tranquility. Students enjoyed responding to the book “What Does Peace Feel Like?” and also created peace doves.

Screen Shot 2564-09-23 at 12.24.02

 

Next Week:

Language – We will continue to learn about weekend recounts. We will introduce key questions such as who, what, where, when, why, and how.

Math – We will continue to explore Numicon and will divulge into using Numicon to make five and ten.

UOI – We will introduce choices and will inquire into individual and group choices. Students will respond to a book about choices and will make connections to their own lives.

Week of 13th – 17th September

Dear EY3 Children and Families,

Children had lots of fun learning this week!

This past week we continued to inquire into our current Unit of Inquiry linked to ‘Community Relationships’. We introduced the idea of responsibility in our morning meetings. We discussed the importance of responsibility and linked this to the EY3 Essential Agreements. Students enjoyed learning about different people in the communities that we are part of and explored that everyone has responsibilities as members of those communities. They read a book on Epic linked to responsibility and reflected on how they are responsible at home and at school. 

Screen Shot 2564-09-15 at 12.23.06

 

In maths, students explored counting and forming numbers. They used their creativity and thinking skills to paint or draw around their hands. Then they counted how many fingers they had and wrote the corresponding numbers.

 

In language, students sent messages to their friends or family. They used a combination of pictures, letters, and words. It was lovely to see the caring messages they thought of which they sent to their loved ones.

 

Parent Coffee Morning:

We were happy to see so many parents at the Parent Coffee Morning on Tuesday. It was great to read some fun facts about you and we hope that you enjoyed the meeting. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the teachers through email or on Seesaw.

Parent Meeting

Epic Hours:

It has been wonderful to see so many students reading books on Epic. Epic is free to use during school hours, from 8 am–3 pm, Monday – Friday. If you try to access Epic after school hours, you will need to pay for an account.

Screen Shot 2564-09-15 at 12.30.40

 

Next Week: 20th – 24th September:

Language – We will continue to learn about retelling weekend recounts. We will also be learning about positional language. Students will describe position and direction, for example, inside, outside, above, below, next to, behind, in front of, up, down.

Math – We will explore Numicon which is an approach to teaching maths that helps your child to see connections between numbers.

UOI – We will continue to focus on responsibility and will link this to individual responsibility goals.

Week of 6th-10th September

Dear EY3 Children and Families, 

Well done to you all on another week of learning and fun. It has been wonderful to see students being engaged during morning meetings and enthusiastic when completing Seesaw Activities.

Screen Shot 2564-09-08 at 13.43.32

This week we celebrated International Literacy Day so students enjoyed fun activities linked to reading and writing. Students used their thinking skills to build their names. They showed how knowledgeable they were by identifying the letters and sounds in their names. They also chose their favourite book and explained why they liked this story.

Screen Shot 2564-09-10 at 13.07.36 Screen Shot 2564-09-10 at 12.22.50.

 

 

We are encouraging students to explore books using the digital reading platform ‘Epic’. This fun, interactive reading platform fuels curiosity and reading confidence by letting kids freely explore their interests, with instant, anytime access to a library of thousands of books, audiobooks, learning videos, and more. Each class has its class code which was shared on Seesaw on Monday. It has been great to see students exploring Epic this week. They read the book ‘One Good Deed’ and were able to identify their favourite part of the book.

Setting up learning centers at home is important so students can have fun learning through play. They all did a fabulous job with setting up water play centers last week. We encourage students to play in the water center as this helps to develop and strengthen gross and fine motor skills. Children will enhance their gross motor skills, coordination, and physical fitness through lifting, pouring, carrying, running, and splashing. This week they enjoyed exploring volume and capacity and estimating how many scoops were needed in different containers.

We continued to inquire into our unit of inquiry. Relationships were explored and linked to communities that we belong to. The learner profile ‘Principled’ was introduced and students reflected about they can be principled. Finally, we consolidated the EY3 essential agreements. The children were asked to sign the agreement and we will be referring to it regularly as the year progresses.

Next Week: 13th – 15th September

We will continue to inquire into our current Unit of Inquiry, “Community Relationships,” with a closer look at the concept of responsibility and students will make connections to the PYP learner profile attributes. The focus will be on how they are caring and principled and this will link to how they make choices and take responsibility. We will also expand our understanding of numbers by exploring a variety of ways to form numbers. Language arts will be integrated during UOI activities and lessons. Students will send messages to their friends or family in the form of a picture, letters, or words.

Week of August 30th – September 3rd

The EY3 children did lots of learning this week, and had lots of fun too!

For Language Arts, the children developed communication skills as they created journal entries about their weekends, and responded to the book “If I Built a School.” They showed creative thinking in their drawing of the schools they would build, and developed phonemic awareness by identifying rhymes.

 

 

For maths, we explored measurement in two different ways. The children thought about how we measure time by making schedules of their daily activities, and began to explore capacity by setting up their own Water Play Centres for ongoing playful learning.

 

 

 

We introduced the idea of communities in our morning meetings, and the children shared with us on SeeSaw about the communities they belong to. We also began to discuss the PYP Learner Profile, and then focused in on the attribute of being “caring.” It was lovely to hear from the children about all the ways they demonstrate this attribute.

 

 

 

Coming Up Next Week

Next week we will talk about relationships, in connection with our current understanding of communities. We will learn about our roles within our communities, and how we are connected to other community members. We will also continue to make connections to the Learner Profiles, with a closer look at being “Principled.”

World Literacy Day is coming up on Wednesday, so we’ll invite the children to take part in a book share to mark the occasion. The children will also enjoy some more math and science exploration through water play.

Please see the table below for a look at the week ahead in specialist classes:

Week Ahead (Week #5)

 

Reminders:

  • Class B will have some changes to student groupings beginning on Monday. An email has already been sent with the new group lists, and the new groups will also be indicated on the weekly schedule.
  • The Primary leadership team has sent out a survey to take your suggestions for future parent education workshops. Please fill out the survey here to make your requests.

Week of August 23rd – 27th

Screen Shot 2021-08-27 at 22.24.14Thank you for another wonderful week of learning in EY3!

 

This week we invited children to share their ideas for our Essential Agreement by thinking about what we can do to create a happy and safe community where we can all learn together. Some great ideas came from the book “Our Class is a Family,” where the children developed reading comprehension skills by suggesting ways that our class can also be like a family.

 

Screen Shot 2021-08-27 at 22.21.13 Screen Shot 2021-08-27 at 22.20.23 Screen Shot 2021-08-27 at 22.17.55 Screen Shot 2021-08-27 at 22.17.34Screen Shot 2021-08-27 at 22.46.10

 

 

For mathematics, the children explored number concepts and measurement through calendar discussions at morning meeting, inquired further into measurement by measuring their own height, and shared their knowledge about patterns.

Coming Up Next Week

Next week, we will dive further into our current Unit of Inquiry, “Community Relationships,” with a closer look at the concept of communities and connections to the PYP learner profile attributes. We will also expand our understanding of measurement by looking at ways that people use measurement in their everyday lives (for example, measuring time and capacity). Language arts are always integrated throughout the UOI, in addition to comprehension skills developed through storytimes, and emergent writing skills nurtured through journal entries. This week we will do a journal entry about our weekends. We will also do some activities with rhyming words, which will help to develop phonemic awareness.

Please see the table below for a look at the week ahead in specialist classes:

Screen Shot 2021-08-27 at 23.22.00

 

 

Clarifications Regarding Schedules and Groups

It has come to our attention that there is some confusion regarding split groups and schedules. Please note that the split groups (Early Group and Late Group) apply to specialist classes and homeroom morning check-ins only. These include PE, Music, Art, Thai classes, and morning meeting. TAL class is the exception, and will include all TAL students together, with class starting at the beginning of the period. (TAL already has a very small number of students, and therefore there is no need to split the group.) This means that TAL class begins at the Early Group time, even if your child is in the late group for other specialist classes. Library is not considered as a specialist class, and will take place in full homeroom groups, also starting at the beginning of the the period. Each homeroom has it’s own Library session with Ms. Lindsay, so please be sure that you are looking at the correct homeroom schedule. Storytime will take place with the full grade together. All EY3 students should join at the beginning of the period (1:40 on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 12:40 on Thursdays).

 

Parent Resources

We would like to remind both parents and children about our daily Help Desks, scheduled at 10:30 am. We encourage you to join us at the Help Desk if you have any questions about remote learning, assigned activities, or supporting your child’s learning in general. Children are welcome to come if they have a question for a teacher or need help completing an activity, and parents are also welcome to bring any of their questions. (Truly any question is a good question – it is not only for tech support!)

EY3 will be hosting our Back to School Coffee Meeting on Tuesday September 14th at 10:30am. This will take place during our Help Desk period for that day, and you can join us using the regular Help Desk link on the schedule. The Coffee Meeting will be similar to what we normally do at school, where teachers will share a presentation of useful information about the EY3 program. Please feel free to let us know in advance if there is a specific topic that interests you. (This will not be a good time to discuss individual student issues, so if you have a concern that is specific to your child, please arrange a private time to speak with their teacher.) The Coffee Meeting will be recorded for sharing with parents who are not available during the live session.

We would also like to share a short article written by our new PYP co-ordinator, Tania, about developing independence in the early years. Early years teachers are very intentional about fostering independence when we are at school together, and therefore we’d like to share some ideas about how you can do this at home throughout your regular family routines:

3 – Developing Independence in the EY years

 

Important Dates:

Tuesday August 31st: Mr. Max’s PE classes will be delivered through a SeeSaw activity instead of a Zoom session – this week only; Mr. Max will resume Zoom sessions next week

Tuesday September 14th, 10:30am: EY3 Back to School Coffee Meeting – Parent event; Zoom link to be included on the class schedule; recording will be available for parents unable to attend

Week of August 16th – 20th

We’d like to congratulate our EY3 community on their first week of remote learning for the school year! The children showed confidence, humour, enthusiasm, and resilience, while we couldn’t ask for a more supportive group of families.

Here are a few photo highlights from Zoom:

 

And some highlights from SeeSaw:

 

 

Remote Learning Next Week

Next week, we will delve further into our year-long unit of inquiry, “Community Relationships,” thinking about how we can build a positive learning community whether it is on campus, online, or at home.

We will have some minor scheduling changes next week, so please be sure to consult our updated schedule on Monday, always linked to both our Daily and Weekly Plan documents. The Weekly Plan can be found here on the blog, by looking in the “Pages” sidebar to the right, and clicking on “EY3 Weekly Planning.” Daily Plans will be posted on SeeSaw every school day morning at 7:50am, along with our morning announcement video.

From Monday to Thursday next week, we will continue to have our morning check-in meetings in smaller groups, as we did this week. We have, however, changed the student groupings so that the children will have an opportunity to interact with different classmates. The “Early Group” will meet at 8:10, while the “Late Group” will meet at 8:30, so be sure to check the group lists included on the schedule for the week, as your child’s meeting time may have changed.

Specialist classes will also take place in smaller groups beginning next week, with each group participating in a 20-minute class instead of 40 minutes. For Music, Art, and PE, we will use student groupings consistent with the morning meeting groups. Therefore, the Early Groups for morning meeting will also be the Early Groups for specialist classes, and will attend for the first 20 minutes of those periods. The Late Groups for morning meeting will also be the Late Groups for specialist classes, attending during the second half of those periods. Thai class groupings will be slightly different, so please look out for that on the schedule. For Library, Ms. Lindsay will work with the full homeroom groups, so you can simply follow the link for Class A, B, or C when your scheduled period starts.

 

Home Learning Packages

Next Friday August 27th, Home Learning Packages will be available for pick up from the KIS campus at the secondary school gates. These will include supplies such as notebooks, paper, markers, glue, play-dough, and dry erase white boards. We encourage everyone to pick one up if you are able to do so, but please don’t worry if you are out of town or unable to get to the school. All of our learning engagements can be completed without the Home Learning Packages, using everyday household items and a bit of creativity.

 

Important Dates:

Friday August 27th – Home Learning Package Pick-Up at KIS

Friday August 27th – House Spirit Day: Children are invited to wear their House t-shirts for the day, or dress in their House colour (orange for Hanuman, purple for Naga, green for Tosakan, and blue for Erawan).

Thursday September 16th – Professional Development Day – no classes for students

Friday September 17th – September Break – holiday, no classes

 

Have a great weekend!

Welcome to our EY3 class for 2021-2022! We hope everyone had a wonderful summer and enjoyed some family time together. Our new EY3 team is very excited for the beginning of the school year, looking forward to making new friends and seeing familiar faces again.

Although online classes are not beginning for EY just yet, we are already busy getting ready for a fantastic school year together. We would like to use this time prior to the beginning of classes to build relationships that will form the basis of a positive learning community. To get started, we are inviting each family (EY3 child and parents) to sign up for a Zoom meeting with their homeroom teacher this week. Sign-up forms will be sent out tomorrow, with meetings taking place on Wednesday and Friday.

Further details about our remote learning program, as well as engagements taking place prior to the first day of classes, will be sent throughout this week. Please keep an eye out for emails from us! You can also subscribe to the blog by entering your email address in the box in the upper right corner, to receive a notification whenever the blog is updated.

Until then, we are pleased to introduce the EY3 team for this year:
