Dear Parents and Children,
We are 4 weeks in to the year and the students have been working and learning well. The class was lucky to have Cherry and Terry, the HFS Turtles in class with them. We showed great responsibility and care in feeding and observing them. In English the students started applying what they have learned about myths and adjectives toward creating their own mythological heroes and settings. They also worked hard learning their Greek God Rap for their upcoming assembly. In Math the year 3’s continued learning about decimals, practicing how to add while the year 2’s practiced their 4 and 5 times tables and partitioning four-digit numbers. In IPC we continued our exploration of “Our World” by reviewing living and non-living things and looking at trees as habitats. They also enjoyed practicing the “I love the whole world” song. Please have them practice their words to these songs over the break as homework. The lyrics can be found here:I Love the Whole World and here: Greek God Rap.
The highlight of the week was undoubtedly today’s Chuseok festivities. The students had a fantastic time celebrating this most significant of Korean Holidays, from making thank you cards to enjoying traditional games and culminating in the spectacular assembly. Well done to the class for performing their roles as MC’s so well and Thank you to all the parents for attending our Chuseok program. Have an enjoyable Chuseok break and I will see you on October 4th.
