Building with Recycled Materials

Exploring or creating with recycled or “found” materials is a big part of everyday life in Pre-K L, much to the benefit of both the children and the environment. Recycled or “found” materials are abundant, sustainable and affordable resources for young children’s creative self-expression. The Pre-K L classroom is equipped with an array of recycled materials e.g. cereal boxes, bottles, fabric scraps, ribbons, cardboard rolls, as well as tools such as scissors, glue, staplers, tape and hole punches. Children have the opportunity to explore these open-ended materials, building hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. Children also gain important knowledge about tools and materials as they practice skills like cutting, stapling, taping and gluing. They confront problems and creatively discover solutions. Children have the opportunity to engage socially as they explore materials. They share techniques, model the use of tools and materials and collaborate with one another. Building and creating gives the children a sense of pride and accomplishment when they innovate, when they make something unique, and when they struggle and succeed.

Welcome to Grade 3 Grammar Centre.

Here is our question for you. What are homophones?

Homophones are words that sound the same, but have different meanings and spelling.

Grade 3 made the Homophone Clip Cards to show our understanding of homophones.

Here below is how to make the cards:

1. Choose the homophones and write them on the bottom of the template card.

2. Write a “fill-in-blank” sentence of your homophones.3. Draw a picture according to the correct answer to the sentence .

4. Use a cloth clip to test your friends to let them clip the correct answer.

Can you think of any other homophones? Come and join us to make the cards!

All right, we have a last question for you.

How many homophones do you think in the English language? You are welcome to put your answer in the comments area below the blurb.

We are looking forward to see all your possible answers!

Grade 4 Field Trip to Cao Chang Jie Primary School

On April 16th, Grade 4 students went on a language and cultural exchange field trip to Cao Chang Jie Primary School in Tanggu, accompanied by Chinese teachers and the music teacher. During the visit, student representatives from the host school put on an excellent Peking Opera show for us. Professional Peking Opera teachers taught us some basic Peking Opera techniques and gestures, which promoted our understanding of the unique art form as well as intrigued our interest in it. Our music teacher also had a chance to try and learn the traditional music instrument for the Peking Opera.
Our Grade 4 students performed two songs in English, one of which is the Cup Song. Amazed by the cup show, students from the two schools buddied up to teach and learn how to do the cup show. The students from the visited school showed great interest in learning how to do it.
In the end, the students grouped up to participate a team-building game, during which students got to know more about each other, talked about how to collaborate and completed the task together. Students from both schools established friendship and had a great afternoon together.

四年级学生交流访问草场街小学

4月16日,TIS四年级学生在中文部老师们和音乐老师的带领下,来到塘沽区草场街小学进行了为期半天的交流学访活动。在学访活动中,草场街小学的部分师生为我们TIS四年级的学生献上了一场精彩纷呈的京剧表演,专业的京剧老师更是亲自上阵教授我们学生演唱京剧的技巧和姿势,使得学生们对京剧有了进一步地了解,也激发了同学们对京剧学习的兴趣。音乐老师也有机会接触并尝试学习国粹京剧伴奏乐器京胡。

我们也为草场街小学的师生演唱了两首英文歌曲。演唱结束后,我们四年级学生与草小的学生结成伙伴,教授他们怎样表演cup song,草小的师生对此表现出了非常浓厚的兴趣。

之后,我们与草场街小学的学生共同完成了一次团队协作游戏。在游戏中,同学们相互认识、了解并讨论了如何合作完成任务。通过此次交流学访活动,两校的同学们之间建立了深厚的友谊,度过了非常愉快的一个下午。
