Giant Book Cover

In celebration of I Love Reading Week, students were tasked with decorating a classroom door to look like a giant book cover. In Grade 2, the students decided on “My Father’s Dragon,” by Ruth Stiles Gannett. It is a lovely book that we had been reading together during Term 1. The children made some preliminary sketches, and then divided into teams to create each part of the design. With very little guidance, they created a beautiful wall! As an added bonus, Principal Williamson was available to read the final chapters of the story to the children on the day they were creating the cover. It was a memorable experience. Many thanks to the Literacy Team for organizing this and many other enriching activities throughout the week!

Block Play in ECA

Blocks are an important part of an Early Childhood classroom. We have them in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors, to meet the developmental needs of every child.

Playing with blocks provides excellent learning opportunities for children from problem solving, language and social skills practice, math and science skills development, use of imagination and creativity, just to name a few.

Here are a few examples of how PKA students use this resource imaginatively:

TIS Library Celebrated Roald Dahl Day!

13 September is Roald Dahl’s birthday and the day when children, schools, libraries, and bookshops all around the globe celebrate his wonderful work.  This date is now known as Roald Dahl Day.

Dahl was the man who made childhood more colorful when he introduced the Twits, James and the Giant Peach, The BFG, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Witches, and other texts.

Of course, TIS Library joined the world in celebrating Roald Dahl Day 2017! In fact, we had scrumdiddlyumptious activities for the kids in Primary School! We watched the life story of Roald Dahl in BrainPop and learned what influenced him to write children’s books. Then, we all did “Kahoot!,” a fun and interactive app in answering questions about Roald Dahl. Everyone had a fantastic time!

It was indeed a splendiferous, gloriumptious, and whizzpopping Roald Dahl 2017! –Mr. Ricky
