We have a new problem for this week. The answer to last week’s question was 1/3. The first two students who answer the problems correctly will receive a reward from Mr. Troutman. Good luck!
Outdoor play is enjoyable for children and important for their growth and development. It helps children develop gross motor skills through climbing, swinging, jumping, etc. Outdoor play encourages children to develop and co-ordinate hand/eye movements through catching and throwing. Children also have a better understanding of spatial awareness through climbing up, down, over or under obstacles. Being outside enables children to develop their social skills by participating in social play with other children. Outside play gives children the opportunity to stretch their muscles and enjoy the freedom of space, a welcome break from being inside.
Our Math Challenge is Back! This new problem is based on probability. The first two students who answer the problems correctly will receive reward from Mr. Troutman. Good luck!
G5 students are learning properties of triangles and 4-sided figures in math. Today, we patterned the shapes with our creativity. Can you tell what the images are?
International Week is a great time to learn about different countries. In the ECA we had visitors from many different countries including Jamaica, Colombia, New Zealand, Philippines, England, China, USA, Sweden, Germany, Thailand, India, Kyrgyz Republic, South Africa and Inner Mongolia. We tried different foods, listened to music, and learned interesting facts about different countries. We especially enjoyed dressing up in our national clothing.
What a sensational International Week TEDA IS has had!
Students in small groups traveled to over a dozen countries without ever stepping foot outside of TEDA as the school-wide house event kicked off on Tuesday, 26 March.
“Travel around the World at TIS” was an interactive experience that was aimed to promote cross-cultural understanding and engagement among students and teachers. Each “traveler” received a mini passport. Their main goal was to collect stamps as they navigated green screen booths that took them to different famous landmarks from across the globe. A whopping 20 country stamps were up for grabs!
To provide a deeper understanding of each country, students were presented infographics that showed key information and trivia. They needed to answer three questions correctly about what they had read to be able to move on to the next booth. Everyone was thrilled running along the corridors to be able to complete tasks! It was such a fantastic afternoon full of fun learning!
Wednesday this week saw Teda International School play host to the highly anticipated International Lunch. The event, which was part of the school’s Spirit Week, was a great success with delicious and delectable foods from across five continents. Parents and staff cooked up a plethora for delights from their home countries. These parents, dressed in their national finest, then spent a long lunch serving the students and staff alike. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts (and our stomachs) for their hard work and goodwill. In all it was a wonderful display of unity, harmony and multicultural cooperation.
