Happy 100 Days!

Friday was a blast! C22 Heroes started the morning by finishing their 100 Days hat followed by decorating their own superhero cape with 100 stickers. After recess, they counted 100 items to take home. After nap time, we all put on our hat and cape and went out for 100 steps! We concluded our day with a STEAM lesson on music (it motivated me to pick up instruments I haven't used for a long time :)). It has caught my attention that C22 Heroes are trying harder to speak in the target language. For that reason, I rewarded each of them with a mini Stitch to take home over the weekend. Please be sure to send your child with it tomorrow. I would also appreciate it if you are able to wash the stuffed animal (air dry)!


Thank you to the parents who helped with the 100 Days project, item donations, and STEAM lesson. As Eli exclaimed after we took 100 steps, "TODAY IS THE BEST SCHOOL DAY EVER!" we sure did have a fun-filled day together.


February is an eventful month so please take a look below for more information (all are listed in the Principal's message). :)

Reminders

1) Better Chinese Account

Please CONTINUE to have your child work on Better Chinese reading as part of their daily homework. This is a very valuable resource the school has purchased to help parents in supporting Mandarin learning at home. Once you log-in, you will see the assignment under "Assignment Messages". If you only have access to an iPad, you may download a free application called Puffin Web Browser and it shall allow you to access the BC account.

2) Khan Academy

Please take advantage of Khan Academy as it is a great resource for your child to practice math skills taught in class or challenge with more math concepts. If your child answer more questions correctly, the website will adapt and give harder problems. It will also make the problems easier if the child is struggling with answering them. After enrolling your child to my "class", I will also be able to see his/her progress. If you need specific recommendations or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.


In the "add a coach" field, please enter class code 78TY9E

3) Class Facebook and Instagram

Please follow our class on social media to get a glimpse of C22Heroes in actions! It's also another way to connect with one another. You may also share it with friends and family members. :)
