Grade 5 students at TEDA Global Academy were busy making book trailers about their well-loved book during their library classes. They utilized the iMovie app and produced very creative and inspiring book teasers.
The students have then linked their videos into this post to share with people.
They hope you like them! Enjoy!
It was a fun day in the park! On Monday Kindergarteners celebrated the end of the year with a field trip to Forest Park in Tanggu. It was an exciting day of bug hunting, picnicking, and playing! We shared a yummy lunch together brought by the parents and discovered many types of bugs living in the forest. We even spotted 63 snails! However, the favourite of the day was sliding, climbing and swinging in the huge playground.
Water play is good for children’s physical, mental, and social-emotional growth. Children increase their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination through actions like pouring, squirting, scrubbing, stirring and squeezing. By playing with others they develop social and language skill as they talk about wet, dry, filling, squeezing, squirting, etc. At the same time, they use their minds as they explore why certain objects sink in water and others float. Children learn mathematical concepts such as empty/full, shallow/deep, before/after and heavy/light in a hands-on way.
During Work Time and Small Group Time, the children in PK2/3 explored water in many different ways. They used cups, squirt bottle, sponges and tubes to build funnels to explore how water moves. They used plastic frogs and ducks to develop mathematical concepts such as “How many frogs are on your lily pad?” and “How many red/blue/yellow ducks do you have?” The children used nets to catch, count and sort fish, letters and numbers. Their most favorite activities were squirting and pouring colored water and washing cars with bubbles and sponges.
Simple machines can be found almost anywhere. In fact they are so common we decided to make our own. From axles to wheels, and levers and pulleys, some with gears some with screws, inclined planes and wedges too. These simple machines were really cool. All grade 1 students enjoyed making their models by using simple machines and practicing the vocabulary.
We need to change the title of our Secondary Math Challenge Problems because amazing math students in Grades 4 and 5 are answering these questions again and again. This time, Grade 5, Olivia and Alice solved the question with an answer of 168. Not only did they solve the problem, they gave a very elegant description of how they solved it. Impressive indeed! This week’s challenge is a visual logic puzzle. Enjoy!
