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.

Last week was Artigras, which tied in really well with our current unit – How We Express Ourselves. On Wednesday, quite a few of our G2 students were risk-takers and participated in busking in order to help raise money.

We continued to learn more about different forms of artistic expression, while also developing a passion in ourselves and others.

A number of students are also really enjoying reading and acting out plays during reading class, and it’s great to see them finding such joy in reading and analyzing the scripts in order to make the best plays possible.

On Thursday, one of the G5 exhibition groups came to class 2B in order to collect date for their exhibition project. The students had to construct an eco-friendly home using legos, and then explain about how their home was good for the environment. The G5 students were actually quite impressed with the amount of knowledge that our G2 students were able to share with them.

Last week, we continued Finding Out more about our new unit, How We Express Ourselves. The students inquired into how different picture books use different artistic styles to convey different meanings. They also spent some time listening to music and learning how musicians use silence and pacing to change the tone of their music.

During the last 40 minutes of each class, the students engaged in Passion Time. This is a time for them to explore ways in which they can express  themselves. Many students are doing it through painting at the moment, while others are experimenting with origami, and acting, and drawing.
