Wow! Another full week as we round the bend to the end of the school year.
In Math we began learning about time. Students started learning how to tell time to the hour on an analogue clock.
In Phonics we continued with “Magic E” and the long vowels O and U. The students are becoming astute young readers and writers.
In IEYC we began our new unit “Imagine That” which focuses on different artists and types of art. We learned about Jackson Pollock and his “action painting” which we recreated by using found objects from outside instead of paint brushes. Much to the pleasure of some of our class, we learned about rangoli from India and tried to create our own with some coloured sand. Also we learned about Paul Klee, a Swiss artist who painted a lot of houses and villages. We drew pictures of our own homes and coloured them vividly.
Book character dress up day was a hit. Congratulations to Maximos for being voted best costume in our class.
Last, but not least, the students presented the Google Slideshows they made last week in Monday’s assembly. I was very proud of them for presenting in front of the whole school.
That’s all for this week. Have a restful weekend and we’ll see you on Monday!
