Week 24 Updates

February 15- 19, 2016

I hope everyone has a rest-welled weekend. As a way to encourage the students to speak in the target language, we have been writing diary as a class (they do it verbally and I type it out before we read it together as a class). You can easily find the tab on the Haiku page. Your child may not be able to remember how to read every character, but I encourage you to visit it and discuss it with your child! :)

Principal's Message

Reminders

1) Better Chinese

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. :)
