Hi moms and dads!
I hope you all had as productive a week as we have had in Grade 4. Students have been on task and busy as bees working on their various projects. Whether in Science were we have just started a project to end out the term - students have chosen animals to investigate and research how animals are classified - how they are supported, how they move, and how they are different from each other. In Social Studies, we are nearing the end of our inquiry into how Buddhism and Confucius have affected Korean culture. In Writing, we have finished up our contributions to the book project as well as our culminating piece for our terms goal of writing literary essays. In Reading we continue to read and discuss Number the Stars as well as work within our historical fiction clubs. Finally in Math, we have finished our work on Fractions and have moved on to Area and Perimeter.
Next week we will have two special events!
On Thursday (4/26) we will have sports day! Students should come prepared to be outside for the majority of the day - hats, sunscreen, etc! Also, while they will not have their regular swimming class, they will be swimming. So swimming gear is a must!
On Friday (4/27) we will have Culture/Diversity Day. We can't wait to see what parents have for us to see and do! We will not have uniform free Friday. Students do not need to pay 1,000 won that day. However, students are encouraged to wear clothes relating to a country from the list chosen below. It is representative of our CDS community. If students would like to wear clothes from another country not on the list, they should please email me for confirmation. Also, please don't go out of your way to gather items/go shopping! I have told students to find what they have at home and be creative.
Korea, Taiwan, China
Iraq, USA, Libya
Canada, Russia, Australia
Egypt, Japan, Kazakhstan
Czech, Ireland, Philippines
Finally, when picking up your child after school, please come to the green space. Students must not be wandering to find parents. Thank you.
Have a great weekend everyone!
