Wow the fun never stops in FS1/2! We had a short but busy week.
Before we begin our recap, let me tell you about our planned field trip for this term. In the Yongnam Alps there is a place which offers a superhero experience. It’s called Lightning Man Experience. The students will be able to wear superhero costumes and go through a variety of stations simulating a real superhero training. This ties in perfectly with our IEYC unit “To the Rescue” which focuses on superheros. It’s sure to be a good time for all. There is a cost involved. The portion needed to be paid by parents is 10,000won. We will be going on Thursday, February 13. Please complete the permission form and send payment to me by Wednesday February 5th. The permission form can be found here: https://forms.gle/zw1Euj5tnDwaR9eT7
Now, on with our update!
In Math we are still learning about comparing numbers within 10. Students examined more and less through a variety of methods. Because we had 2 short weeks, we will be continuing this unit next week as well.
In Phonics we looked at the letters U and Z. Z was a special day because it was also Ezra’s birthday and he was very happy that there was a Z in his name. Our word of the week was “get”. As you may have noticed, I sent home readers that have gone up a level in reading and incorporate more of our sight words. If you have any feedback about your child’s use of these readers please contact me.
We had a great time in IEYC continuing our superhero theme. We finished up our collages of our superhero costumes and then we made wristbands and belts to wear during roleplay. We also made a supercomputer, a superhero phone directory, and not least of all a superhero hideout that we decorated ourselves. The students had a great time expressing their creativity through these activities.
That’s all for this week. Have a restful weekend and we’ll see you back on Monday.
