Good evening Panda friends! Hope you had a nice weekend! There are so many things I want to tell you about the first full week of school:
1. We are trying to make morning meeting more fun! It starts with greeting friends and giving praise. Then follows up with an activity. We tried team building game (see pictures) and sharing last week.
2. We started our math learning journey right away!! In this year, I keep all in class worksheets and homework in a binder. Homework questions are closely related to the in class worksheet. It helps students to review and refresh the knowledge when they are doing homework, also helps parents understand every lesson's objective. I would highly recommend to do homework everyday (say we learned lesson 5 last Friday, do lesson 5's homework on Friday). It only takes about 5-10 minutes when the content knowledge stay fresh!! Also, please remind your child to take the binder to school EVERYDAY!
3. Since we have different target language instruction time between two grade levels, when all third graders are powering up for English, I have second graders doing Mandarin learning centers. We tried character writing on dry erase cloth, drawing vocabulary book, and listening to Chinese stories.
We are still looking for communal snacks for pandas! If you would like to drop off some snacks that will be wonderful! Thank you for your support! Let me know if you have any questions. Have a good night!
