Theme International, Animals Around the World, Halloween

September sure was a busy month! Despite its complexity, K3 and K4 students did a fabulous job with learning many new and interesting facts about the wonderful world that we live in. Thank you to all who came to the Parent Observation day on October 1st. I can’t believe how much everyone has grown since the start of this school year. Many of the K3 students are now speaking English to each other (sometimes fighting in English too) and were able to make sentences like “I like this song!” “I want to sing Kookaburra song! ” “I live in Japan.” They also did an amazing job with learning the continents and oceans of the world! K4 students learned the material well and were making sentences like “India is known for the Taj Mahal.” “You need to go to United States of America to see the Statue of Liberty!”
“Argentina is in South America!” WOW! I was really impressed with how well they learned the American Sign Language along with the words to the song “What a Wonderful World” too. I hope you enjoyed their performances as well.
