Delightful December

December was such a short but definitely sweet month. Our days were filled with fun and meaningful activities.

We kicked off the month by practicing for our Christmas Concert. Together with Mr. Vinnie, we learned how to groove and move with the song “It’s Christmas Time Again” by the Backstreet Boys.

Aside from that, we also had our Service Learning Activity the the MovEd kids. It was a lot of fun to do different centers with them. The students enjoyed helping out and sharing food and gifts with our guests.

It definitely made us feel the spirit of Christmas. It is indeed a time for giving and helping.

Looking forward to more activities like this in the coming months!

Thirteen Days of November

November has been a month full of class suspensions and national holidays. Nonetheless, it has still been a month full of fun and learning with the Kindergarten YM students. We had the chance to apply what we learned about animals when we encountered a cat at the playground.

Aside from that, we also had a chance to make wonderful stories with our groups.

We read one of our favorite books, and did fantastic artworks inspired by the stories we read.

We also had our Book week celebration last November. We had the chance to know more about the Indian culture by listening to the stories of Ms. Madhu Saini.

We had plenty of time to read on our own, too!

We performed a book blurb in front of the Early Years community. We recited a poem to summarize the book “The Kissing hand” by Audrey Penn.

We practiced really hard to make sure our performance was great and memorable!

November went by so quickly. I wonder what’s in store for us this December? Let’s wait and see. It is bound to be a great month, too!

Welcome to Kindergarten YM SY 2017-2018!

Dear Parents,

Welcome to Kindergarten!

The school year has a lot in store for us. Exciting times ahead! I am looking forward to get to know you and your children. I believe our collaboration will result to an engaging and fruitful learning experience that will benefit the children in Kindergarten YM.

I am Yna Maria U. Mendez and I will be your partner in helping your children learn and develop new skills this school year. I have been teaching for six years and this is my first year here in Chinese International School Manila. I earned my undergraduate degree from the University of the Philippines, Diliman with a specialization in Special Education. Currently, I am pursuing my Master’s degree in Educational Psychology in the same institution.

I have always believed in student-centered learning in my years as an educator.  With this in mind, I go for activities that would elicit self discovery, curiosity, and collaboration.

In our journey to acquire new sets of knowledge and skills, please be assured that I am here to guide and help your children reach their aspirations and goals.  Together, we may communicate through your child’s assignment notebook, e-mail (ymendez@cismanila.org) or by setting an appointment with our Executive Secretary, Ms. Kitin Conchu (mconchu@cismanila.org) or at Tel. No. (632) 798-0011 Local 103 or 116.

 

Looking forward,

YNA MARIA U. MENDEZ
Teacher

In the past month, the students had gotten used to the practices and routines in the classroom. Aside from this, they have shown great curiosity and enthusiasm in learning new things. They were also keen on learning different skills and things with their other teachers. Every lesson is surely an enjoyable one with the students participating actively in every class.

Wake Up Wednesday!

Apart from the daily activities in the classroom, we just had our Annual Spirit Week. It was really a treat for the kids to wear different costumes and to buy the treats being offered by the Student Council.

The past month has truly been a blast! Looking forward to more months of adventures with the Kindergarten YM students.
