News – Quarter 3 Week 1

Happy New Year everyone!

I trust you all had a safe and enjoyable break whether you were here in Chiang Mai, or away. Mr Andy, Jessica and I thoroughly enjoyed our  Christmas in Seoul, Korea visiting friends from when we lived there 6 years ago.

Wearing a few more clothes than we are used to. It was -13 degrees Celsius when we left our friend's place for Christmas dinner!

We had a lot of students that shared news with the class today. If your child would like to share photos, we welcome them to school anytime.

Back to School

We welcome Oliver Chu back to APIK. Oliver and his family have been living in the USA for the last few months, and it is great to have them back!

I welcomed the whole class back to school on Monday with a 100 word spelling test! Lucky them. In fact all week we have been working extra hard. We finished off our last unit of inquiry Materials and Matter by making more clay creations, but this time here at school. Students needed to tell me some properties of clay, how they changed the clay, and the purpose of their clay creation.

We completed a pre-test for our next math unit, recommenced our guided reading groups, and started writing holiday recounts using the writing process. We finished off the week with a quick lesson on portrait drawing, and began sketching our friends. I can’t wait to see how these artworks turn out!

Homework

Two homework sheets have gone home and they are due back next Thursday 24th January. One is for math, and the other is for our new unit of inquiry.

Website photos

I am a little behind with uploading photos. I think I still have a bunch from the end of last semester that I need to post, so I will make sure to do that this month.

Show and tell

Tawan, Yaisana, and Ryu may bring something to share to the class on Friday 25th January.
