Hello parents,

As next week quickly approaches, I just wanted to remind you of three great events that will also be taking place.

  • “SIS Stories” Podcast Global Event on October 17th all day – from the convenience of your own home or workplace; just click HERE on that date
  • Annual Bayside Halloween Haunted House on October 19th from 6:00pm to 8:30pm – at SIS Bayside Campus; 20RMB for students, 10RMB for accompanying adults
  • 2018-2019 PSA Family Movie Night on October 20th starting at 5:30pm for food stalls and 6:30pm for movie – at SIS Jinshan Sports Field

    As we complete our “Who We Are” unit of inquiry, we are also wrapping up our reading interpretative book clubs and narrative writings (sharing out of our rough draft is above on the Flipgrid… check them out). We are now crossing over to our second unit of inquiry, “How the World Works” where we will be delving deeper into nonfiction text and research essay writing. Please keep a look out for our big wrap up at the end of the next unit where students will showcase their mastery learning from each topic / unit.

    Looking for a way to study key vocabulary words in preparation for our science unit on matter, mixtures, and solutions? Here are two great quizlets shared by Mrs. Gibson to help your student in their endeavors:

  • Quizlet Flashcards 1
  • Quizlet Flashcards 2

    In mathematics, we have begun investigating the order of operations and numerical expressions. If you would like to review some of these concepts so far instructed, here are a few resources to assist:

  • Study Jams: Order of Operations
  • Khan Academy: Constructing Numerical Expressions
