Words from Our Teachers

Dear Parents,

Although February was short and fast this year, we have been very busy and fulfilled during this time! We celebrated the Lunar New Year, Valentine's Day and African American History Month in various ways. Through these activities, we further learn to understand the different cultural customs of the East and the West.

March was another delightful month full of fun, learning and creativity. We continue building phonemic awareness and enhancing both our vocabulary and sight words. We focused a lot on mastering in writing lowercase letters and short/long vowel sounds. We continued reviewing basic operations, plain and solid shapes, patterns, graphing data and reviewing hour and half-hour of time.

On March 11, our teachers and students went to the Smithsonian National Zoo and visited many animals that children love! In order to give them a better understanding of various animals, in the first two weeks, the teachers taught a large number of courses about animals. For example: What animals live on land and water (rivers, lakes and seas)? What animals can fly in the air? Where do they usually live, Africa, Europe, Asia, America (South, North), Australia, Antarctic, Arctic? What types of animals, carnivores, herbivores, or omnivores? In the teaching process, we adopted various activities such as telling stories, guessing riddles, saying nursery rhymes, singing nursery rhymes, and doing handicrafts. Our class created zoo animals made from play-dough to form a little zoo of our own. The students showed great interest in this!

March 17 is a traditional Irish holiday. We learned the history of St. Patrick’s Day and how it was celebrated. Since St. Patrick’s Day was all about rainbow colors, especially green, the students made a walking rainbow experiment with water and three food colors (red, yellow and blue) which showed great success the following day. As the weather changes and Spring has come, we introduced the growth and cycles of flowers, plants and insects. We characterized different types of plants and insects. Together we planted grass from seeds for each of student to see its growth and learn about the care and needs of plants. We are excited and ready for April's activities.

In April, our theme will be birds and oceans.

Keep up the great work Victor's!

Warmest Regards,
Ms. Julia & Ms. Lindsay
