This month has flown by as we’ve had many different school activities. We celebrated the 100 days of school as we realized how much we’ve accomplished in those days.
The students had a great time during the field trip where they got the chance to visit the National Museum of the Philippines where we were able to see 3 different exhibits. We saw the artifacts and aspects about the Philippine culture through the Museum of the Filipino people.
The students also looked at many different art pieces from different Filipino artists in the National Art Gallery. They were very fascinated by the Planetarium where they felt like they were seeing everything happen in space.
Last week the school celebrated the Birthday of Dr. Seuss and did different activities related to the numerous books he has written.
For Math the students have been learning to master their division facts and have started learning how to do long division. Although it was a struggle at first for all the students they have come a long way in understanding the different steps in long division.
In Science we wrapped up learning about the different inherited and acquired traits we have received from different family members. They learned that inherited traits are traits you are born with while acquired traits are traits that are learned over time. They created their own families in posters to highlight the different traits their person inheritted from their parents.
For Social Studies the students have learned about the different empires of Ancient Mesopotamia and even got the chance to play some of the roles of the different social classes back then to trade for their goods in order to survive. They also had to use cuneiform as receipts in order to record their trading and buying. They also learned to play BINGO to review all the different vocabulary words they have learned so far.
For ELA the students have been continuing working on their reading fluency and comprehension skills. They have been comparing and contrasting different texts as well as learning grammar. Soon they will begin to start doing research on topics they have chosen for their information writing.
