Ms Greenlee's Class

7 December - 11 December A Date (or three) to Note --
8 December: At 1:35 all students will attend Opening Ceremonies for International Week. This is a school wide assembly and a wonderful opportunity to appreciate just how international ASD truly is!
10 December: On Wednesday at 10:00 a.m., students have been invited to the high school gym for the most delightful international buffet. Please pack snack and lunch according to your child's needs-- there is lots on offer at the buffet, however we have our usual snack and lunch time.
11 December: 2G will be attending closing ceremonies, this is a smaller assembly held in the MPR.
Throughout the week, students are encouraged to show spirit by following 'Theme Days': -National Costume Day (Mon) -Sports jerseys (Tues) -Qatar Colors Day (Wed) -International Week T-Shirt (Thurs)
2G students have been practicing lots and this certificate acknowledges that. Parents you'll notice by all the work sent home, that students are working with much bigger numbers now. We've been thinking a lot about using benchmark numbers.
Last week we worked together to figure out the difference between interesting parts of a story and important parts. Students have been reading both fiction and nonfiction and honing their retelling skills.
I thoroughly enjoy reading students reading logs. Each day after independently reading students are asked to make an entry in their reading log. While conferring, I'm able to learn if students are understanding their reading and to help them with tricky words.
2G students have been helping each other by noticing whether or not opinions have been supported. We have loads of opinions! What we've been continuing to work on this week is making sure that our opinions can be supported. I'll be singing with at these concerts. It'll be fun to hear opinions from the audience.
Happy Birthday to Fatima
It's always fun to have a reason to celebrate and this month we get to share Fatima turning eight.
Get Ready for ASAs
After school activities are fun for all. I hope students find something interesting to try. My favorite part of ASA's is meeting ASD students I might not otherwise have the opportunity to meet. They are great for developing social skills.
