Welcome to Year 2-8
Ms Rola and Ms Sheila
International Week Jan. 21-25, 2018
Focus Country: INDIA
We will be celebrating diversity in EMS – Primary Department – during International Week from Jan. 21 to Jan 25, 2018. Our class will focus their learning about India, in addition to other countries that are already familiar to us.
Learn: Please have your child do a little research so that they could share with the class a valuable piece of information about our focus country during the week. He/she can share it as poster/project or even orally in the morning during the time allotted for Show and Tell.
Song: We will learn a new song called “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing”. Please help your child practice the song at home so he/she can sing it out loud with all the other year 2 students in our assembly. Here’s the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6a8F28WVXlk
Decoration: Please share any decorative items with the class, if you have any. We will return them as soon as we are done with this week.
Thursday, Jan 25, 2018: Wrapping Up our Diversity
FOOD: As a celebration for the end of International Week, Thursday, Jan. 25, 2018 you are also welcome to send a traditional dish from your own country’s cuisine. Please avoid food that does is not healthy and/r does not represent your own home country. Thank you!
COSTUME: Moreover, in order to help your child get motivated about this learning experience, we ask you in advance to prepare to have your child dress up in his/her own national costume for own home country. You can be creative with the dress up; it could be the traditional folklore dress or even the colours of his/her own national flag. Kindly check ideas using the Google search engine to help you with costume ideas. Please don't let your child miss the chance of proudly showing their sense of belonging. Such things make learning all the more exciting for your little ones!
We appreciate your cooperation and your support to help make this week informative and fun! Please contact me for more info.
Hello, my name is Rola and I come from Lebanon. I am pleased to be part of the Year 2 team here at EMS for the 4th year! I am looking forward to another year full of new discoveries. Your children bring so much to this class and I'd love to learn more about them! There is so much to be excited about this year. Some of the concepts we will tackle in year 2 are living and non-living, addition and subtraction, creative writing, reading habits and word study. One of my favourite things to teach is reading using the Workshop model! We will do many interesting writing activities that go along with the stories we read in class. I believe that students shine when they try their best. Teaching is my pleasure :)
Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I want to partner with you in order to best support your child. You can simply reach me at email@example.com for quick answers or you may set an appointment through the secretary for more detailed inquiries.
