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.
For the first time in four years, no one was able to answer the previous challenge problem. It will be re-used next year to see if anyone can get it. This week’s challenge problem focuses on algebra problem solving at the highest level. Enjoy!
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:
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!
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.
We are continuing a tradition with the Girls High School Soccer Team – the Senior Recognition Game. On Wednesday, April 25th, at 4:00pm, the girls host Maple Leaf School on our field. During half-time, there will be a ceremony recognizing our 12th grade players: Bella, Claudia, EunSong, Katey, Luna and Sandy. Their athletic and academic accomplishments will be highlighted on the Public Address system. The players will receive flowers during the ceremony. We hope that you will come out to this game to support the team and help recognize the players for all their hard work and dedication. Thanks for helping make this a memorable event.
