Reading Awareness Month

We have been doing a lot of reading in kindergarten for Reading Awareness Month! We have been working very hard to understand the different story elements and language. It has been fun exploring different books. We even had a special treat, the principal came in to read us a special book!

Patterning Math!

We have been spending a lot of time working on patterns in math class. The different manipulatives were helpful for us to understand how to create patterns. This has been a very fun unit with lots of hands on learning. We made matching pattern bracelets at the end!  

Happy New Year 2019!

Happy New Year! Let’s have a great 2019 all together! あけましておめでとうございます。一緒に素晴らしい一年を送ろう!

Hong Kong Tirp/香港学校見学旅行

We went to Hong Kong during the break. We were blessed with great weather and it was a very pleasant day. The students became one day transfer students and spend the day at a similar Canadian international school in Hong Kong and now seem to have gained confidence to study abroad in the future. 香港旅行に行ってきました。天候にも恵まれ、とても過ごしやすい日々でした。生徒達は一日転校生となって、同じカナダ系のインターナショナルスクールで一日過ごし、将来の海外留学の自信になったようです。
