Elementary School

Fun in Ms. Lily's Mandarin Class

We started learning about different shapes; This week we started from the basic- Circle and Square. We talked about the importance of certain shape needs to be in our daily life, and brainstorm as many as shape related objects in the world. K-4 had fun by learning shape theme words such as bubbles, caterpillar, balls, and robot in Mandarin, we also enjoyed beautiful weather outside by blowing bubbles and searching for caterpillars/butterflies! Luckily, two 4 grade students found baby caterpillars and they were so excited to show their classmates!

First grade STEM coding their robot mice

Kinder A explored outside and found ladybugs!

Elementary Spanish

This week, the lower levels worked in a variety of stations to review material they have learned throughout the year.

Mr. Matthew visited our class and joined us in singing “Un Ciclo Sin Fin” (the Lion King - Circle of Life), and he also stayed to work and learn with students on a variety of stations.

Here he is with a student who recently joined our school and said, “I don’t know anything”. I heard him tell her, “Even if you don’t know, don’t give up”. He worked with her and encouraged her along. He asked me what words meant, he asked other students what words meant, and he let the student know that even though he didn’t know the vocabulary, he could find it out.

He is correct!
