HERE IS TO A GREAT SECOND WEEK!
We kicked of the second week of school at a wonderful pace. The children were very excited and ready for their classes as usual. The first graders began the week continuing to learn about the different people in school. They were able to talk about their favorite person from school and all the fun things they like do at school. We moved on to phonics and learnt four different sounds. Later, the children practiced in their workbooks and were able to display what they had learnt for the week.
The second graders got a chance to write about themselves in our “All about me” activity. We asked the kids to draw themselves and write a few characteristics about who they are. To end the week, we had a fun reading activity. We read a big book called “Dear Zoo”. The children really loved the story and got a chance to write their own letter to the zoo and ask for their own animal.
With third and fourth graders, we did some group reading, individual reading and some paired questions & answers using cornerstone. The students really enjoyed it and gained satisfaction and confidence through activities like this.
Fifth and sixth graders have settled in very well and most are adjusting to their new classes. We will be posting more of their progress in due course as we had not started anything major. At the moment we are learning about helping people in the community and why it is important to so. The six graders have done well and have shown great understanding on the topic. As for the fifth graders, they are learning about the importance of animals and why we should take care of them.
It was a very exciting week and we hope the next weeks will get better and better.
