Welcome back to learning欢迎回到学习中来

So far we have been easing into our return to school. We have been setting up our environment to ensure that we have all the appropriate behaviours we need to encourage us to be successful learners. We prepared a booklet in which we discussed the reasons rules are important and what types of rules we have for the different areas of our life.
目前我们已经返回到我们的学校,我们已经建立了我们的环境,以确保我们都适当的行为,我们需要鼓励我们成为成功的学习者。
We have talked about what it means to be a student in an IB (International Baccalaureate) school and what are the different levels within such an education system. We are part of the PYP ( Primary Years Program) and we must follow the guidelines for our learning to be successful in the future.We have had several group discussions with regard to our first unit of inquiry. We will be inquiring into our choice of role models and what are the characteristics of a positive role model.The children are working on aspects of life such as beliefs and values, recognizing the importance they have in our lives and taking part in group debates about how the world would be without good values.

我们已经谈到了一个IB(国际文凭组织)学校作为一个学生意味着什么,和在这样一个教育系统的不同层次。我们是小学课程的一部分因此我们为学习必须遵循指导方针在未来取得成功。我们有几个小组讨论关于我们的第一个单元的调查,我们将深讨榜样的选择和一个积极的榜样的特征是什么。孩子们在生活方面如信仰和价值观,意识到在我们的生活的重要性,和通过参与小组讨论关于世界没有良好的价值观将会如何。

We enjoyed carrying out a survey in the other PYP classrooms of the reasons we are happy to be back to school.We are using this as part of our data handling learning outcome in mathematics. We will prepare a bar graph to show the results to this question. We are also working on word problems and modelling addition and subtraction of whole numbers.

A little about Ms. Marie关于

Teaching is my second career as I lived for 10 years overseas working in the hotel management sector. My husband and I lived in Turkey for 5 years where we had our daughter who is in PYP1 at CAIS. This will be our third year in China. While here I have completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Education and currently I am pursuing a Masters in Education from The University of Nottingham.

As an educator, I believe it is my role to guide children towards becoming independent, creative, free thinking individuals. I aspire to design a classroom environment where children feel safe and cared for and where each child’s learning style is attended to. My hope is to instill in the children a lifelong love of learning, just as it has been instilled in me by the educators who have been and who still are a part of my learning and teaching experiences. I am still finding my way around the classroom and look forward to improving my abilities as a teacher.

作为一个教育工作者,我相信这是我的角色来引导孩子走向独立,有创造力,自由思想的人。我希望设计一个教室环境,让孩子感到安全和照顾,在这里每个孩子的学习风格都会别关注。我希望灌输孩子们终生热爱学习,就像一直灌输给我的教育工作者和他们仍然是我学习和教学经验的一部分。我还发现在教育生涯的路上,期待提高我作为一个老师的能力。
