We are into our last week before the Chinese New Year break and your children are busier than ever! Last week they experienced a very successful “soft launch” of their Restaurant Wars project for our current Unit of Inquiry on economics. Using that data, students adjusted prices, menus, and made predictions on how much they thought they would earn.
Today, students in 4B and 4C experienced the “grand opening” of their restaurants: B&E and ILC for 4B and Gecko Flavor for 4C! Tomorrow 4A and 4D will be doing the same for their restaurants, “International Kitchen” and “Dynamite Kitchen”, respectively.
At the same time, students have been working on their poetry as well as multi-digit multiplication and division. Stay tuned for an invitation from your child’s class for a potential poetry slam where you may get to hear your child recite his/her favorite poems aloud!
Just a reminder that this week will be a short one!
- Three-Way Conferences = Wednesday, January 22nd will not be a regular school day for G4 students as there will be conferences on this day. However, G4 students are expected to attend and lead their own conferences!
- Chinese assembly and Lion Dance = Thursday, January 23rd, will be an assembly day hosted by the Chinese language teachers. They will perform a special dance that they have practiced for this day! This will be followed by a Lion Dance on the sports field. Students are encouraged to wear traditional Chinese dress on this day if they have it.
- No School = Friday, January 24th, will be a No School Day as it is the first day of the Lunar New Year! Happy Year of the Metal Rat everyone! We will return to school on Monday, February 3rd!
