February 17-21 Newsletter

TIS will be hosting two new teachers from Laos for an 8 week internship this spring: Vansay Somboun (Max) (middle) and Bouakham Vanhnachack (Lat) (right). TIS has partnered with GLOBE, a Canadian non-profit organization and My Library in Luang Prabang to facilitate the exchange program in which TIS teachers mentor educators from developing countries and assist them on their journey to becoming practicing teachers in their home country. Vansay and Bouakham will be working alongside TIS teachers, learning teaching methods based on inquiry. They will also get the opportunity to learn about Macao’s culture, customs and language. We have the pleasure of having Mr. Lat in our classroom.

This week, we will be working on writing Stuck Fairy Tale stories. Then next week, we will be making an online ebook that we will be able to share. We will be finishing up our magnet projects and finishing up our chapter book "Dinosaurs Before Dark". In social, we will be working on our Macao Community Book.

We also have assembly this Wednesday. All parents are invited to join us. In math, we will continue working on addition and subtraction using 2 digit numbers.

Have a great week and see you Wednesday.
