It's strange to return from vacation to a remote learning day, but teachers are looking forward to greeting students tomorrow morning for an in-person day of learning. It was busy in the days leading up to February vacation, so I didn't get a chance to create a blog post before vacation. Therefore, today is a double dose of information and pictures!
Unified Arts Update:
Art - We painted images of bamboo three weeks ago and then the week before vacation turned them into wall banners. We also folded red envelopes to hold some colorful money. All of this was in celebration of the Lunar New Year (sometimes referred to as Chinese New Year).
PE - We did skating, skating, and more skating! The ice has been great lately. Some of the teachers have gone skating with the group, and even Mr. Spence (one of our school custodians) has gotten on the ice with our class and shown off his impressive skating skills.
Enrichment - The weather was too cold for rocket launches three weeks ago, so we were weather delayed again. Instead, we watched an interesting episode of Weird, But True about building rockets. The week before vacation, however, we were finally able to launch our rockets in the gym. It was very exciting!
Music - The last time we had music class students heard a broad range of music from Louis Armstrong to Bruno Mars and practiced rhythm along with them. They were also introduced to the piano as a percussion instrument.
Our snow day before vacation and the extended February break prevented us from having Spanish and Library in recent weeks. If you have noticed that your child has had the same library books for a while, that is why!
