Hi all!!

Well, it finally happened. The end of the first term is here, and you will receive your children’s first report card next week. Things are slowly falling into place and I can see some real progress being made in the classroom. More than ever before, it is time for you to keep an eye on your kids, pay attention to their progress and show real interest in what is happening in school. If they feel you are involved, if they see your interest is genuine, they will be much more likely to share school stuff with you and you will enjoy seeing their growth first-hand.

Woooooahhh!! What was that? Was that a GHOST? Or maybe a tormented soul that lingers in our world after Halloween?? Don’t worry, it won’t hurt you, In fact, kids had a blast celebratiing Halloween, and it felt really great to do it in our new location. I am positive, too, that the 4th Grade classroom had the best decoration in the school!!! It was a joint effort and I was proud to see them all working as a team. Here are some of the pictures (I’m saving some for the yearbook!):


Putting up spooky spiderwebs on the windows!





IPC NEWS: As you already know, I decided to start the new IPC unit on Rainforests early. This unit will probably last until half way through the second term (mid January), and I hope the kids will learn a lot about rainforests, why they are so important and the challenges they face. I hope you found the information I sent to you useful; if you have not had time to go through it, please do it this weekend. It makes a real difference for your kid when you know what they are learning. We are now decorating the room to feature some of the many animals who live in the tropical rainforests, and today we watched a very interesting video from National Geographic. Please take some time to view it -or view it with them, as we didn’t have time to finish watching it-, learn some very interesting facts yourselves and share them with your children!!

On Friday, your kids will take a Math quiz on multiplication and an English test on some of the things they have learned so far. You can help them review the different types of sentences here, or play games to practice sequencing here or here.

This is all for now. Stay tuned and do not hesitate to contact me if you have any comments or concerns!
