Happy Holidays

This month was a time for giving thanks, sharing what we have to others and giving love to everyone around us. We celebrated our ‘Christmas Cheer’ with the MoveEd kids and learned to share snacks, toys and presents. We had our Christmas concert where we presented the song ’12 Days of Christmas’ using our hand bells. We ended our celebration by having a party with the Kinder YM class. We played games, had lunch together, exchanged gifts and watched a movie about Christmas.

We’re learning to read and write!

In Kindergarten, we aim to foster children’s love for reading and writing through storytelling, class discussions, group activities and games, shared and independent reading and in answering worksheets.

With these we encourage an awareness of how reading and writing are useful, develop listening comprehension, and explore the process of communicating through oral and written language.


The students read books that interest them

Marching on to summer!

The class talked about the different problems that we’re experiencing such as air pollution, water pollution and land pollution and how we can take care of our earth.We connected it to what’s happening to the Philippines with the water shortage and brainstormed on the different ways we can conserve water.

Children are learned about the different natural resources and how we can take care of them. Here they are learning about how to reuse, reduce and recycle the natural resources.

Short But Sweet February

February was a short month, but it didn’t stop us from having new discoveries and learning new things.

We celebrated the Chinese New Year by watching the Dragon dance performance together with the other students in CISM. We performed a song and dance number for our parents and made a dragon kite by cutting, coloring and painting papers. We capped it off by making our own Milk Tea!

In Social Studies, we learned about conflict resolution. Here we are given a situation, we act it out and show how we can solve the problem.

IMG_0987
“If my friend got upset because I told her that she’s not gonna by my friend anymore, I will give her space and say sorry after.”

IMG_0978
“If my friend cries because I didn’t want to share my toys, I will apologize and share my toys with him.”

IMG_0983
“If my friend got mad at me because I was teasing him, I will say sorry and give him a hug.”

We learned about 2 digit subtraction. Here we are playing the game “Roll, Build and Solve”

IMG_1300
We roll the dice…

IMG_1298
Build using the base ten blocks…

IMG_1299
…and solve the subtraction problem.

In Science, We learned about the 3 bodies of water: Ocean, river and lakes. We made a 3D representation with our groupmates using cotton, cellophane, clay, paper and paint.

IMG_1532
We made a river. A river is a strip of water that flows through another body of water.

IMG_1534
We made a lake. A lake is a body of water that is surrounded by land.

IMG_1533
We made the biggest body of water: the ocean!

In ELA, We read the book ” The Thank You Book” by Mo Willems. We were divided into small groups to make different tasks to help us develop our general love for reading and critical thinking skills.

IMG_1491
“If we were to change the ending it would be.. Piggie will make a thank you card for the readers.”

IMG_1493
“Our favorite part of the story is when Piggie forgot to thank Gerald.”

IMG_1497
“We showed the important facts in the story”
