Week 30 Updates

April 4-8, 2016

Hello!

It's amazing how we only have about two months of school before C22Heroes become first graders! We have many exciting events planned for the next two months. Please continue stay updated by checking the Haiku site.


Many teachers will offer activities to do with the student whose parents bid and won from the gala auction. For the gala auction, I have submitted the following items:



-indoor rock climbing

-Tempest Freerun Academy

-movie & snack with Ms. Wu and I (one student for me and one for Ms. Wu. The four of us will all go together)

-bowling


Feel free to discuss with your child so you know which activities interest them. That should help you to place your bids on gala night! :)

Star of the Day!

What: Each student will take turn being the STAR OF THE DAY

Why: -to provide each child an opportunity to share about himself/herself

-to make each child to feel valued (it's THEIR day!)

-to build confidence doing presentation in front of peers

How: All students will be given 3 weeks to work on a poster with fun facts about himself/herself. Then going in number order, each student will take turn being the Star of the Day and present the poster. A handout with requirements and helpful sentence frames was sent home LAST WEEK.

When: We will start the presentation after 3 weeks. You have the option to bring in the project before the 3 weeks deadline. The child can also bring in the poster on the day that he/she is the star of the day. :)


Please contact the room parents if you need a new handout.

Reminders

1) Better Chinese Online 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. :)
