3 Weeks, Let's Go!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! A BIG thank you to the parents who brought in a potluck item and helped with set up/clean up. If you took any picture or video, please share them on Shutterfly at your earliest convenience! The next three weeks will be filled with more learning and fun activities. Please read below for more information!

Classroom Needs

Coming up Soon!

1) Principal's Message

I will continue to send out the weekly update over the weekend. If, for any reason, you are not receiving the principal's weekly update, please check the Haiku page on Monday evening or Tuesday. Once it's sent out, I will add her message to my weekly update.

2) 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

This week's assignment is the same as the last one as we were on Thanksgiving Break. This is a good time to allow your child to review some of the books he/she has already learned.

3) 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

4) 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. :)
