Wow, what a week! Spirit week has been a boat load of fun!
Tuesday's trip to the Seoul Zoo was a great day of adventurous hiking followed by lunch and a jaunt through the zoo to see some animals. Wednesday's Pajama Day saw us studying comfortably throughout the day with our teddies and finally have a frightful afternoon with a few episode's of Goosebumps. We had some snacks, too! Thursday we should more spirit with Twin day, and finally today we really showed our stripes. Sorry. Bad joke. Anyways, check out the pictures over in our photos tab.
Academically speaking, we are off to a strong start in Term 2. In Reading we began to examine our nonfiction selection by choosing and learning from books about weather. In Writing, we started our unit on opinion writing after learning about the importance of selecting a proper thesis statement. In Social Studies, we continue working on our modern day Korea maps with symbols representing crops and minerals throughout the peninsula. In Math we starting thinking about rules in algebra using in and out boxes. Finally, in Science we opened our unit on matter with some demonstrations with ice cubes and our own bodies as particles. Fun stuff!
Coming up next week!
Parent teacher meetings! I'm looking forward to seeing ALL of you next Friday. Click here to make an appointment with me and any other teacher you would like to speak with. I recommend that you meet with the specialists as well!
The following weekend, those playing soccer will do so at the Songdo 7s! A two day tournament happening on November 4-5. Work hard players!
For Spirit Week: Monday, students should wear mismatched clothes for Misfits Monday. Then the big day, Halloween! Students should dress up for the day and bring a container to collect candy. Who's excited! I'm excited!!! :) Our spirit week ends on Wednesday with Retro Uniform Wednesday, when students can wear uniforms from the past as well as soccer uniforms or shirts and bling from special days.
I hope you all had a great week. I'm so happy that we were able to cap the week off with our assembly. Great job everyone! This week we were busy finishing off projects to end Term 1. You may see some of our work in our portfolios. Ask your child to show you how!
Next week we will have another event filled week!

Happy Monday everyone!
Last week we had a busy week preparing for the end of Term 1. Math saw us working on Line Plot projects, Writing sees us getting closer to finishing our stories, and Reading and Social Studies have seen us busily completing projects and getting them ready for display. Finally, we capped of the week with our Jog-a-thon / Fall Fest. We are so proud of parents and and students alike for their enthusiastic involvement. Well done, Dalton family!
