Week 3 Term 3 PE

The SIS Physical Education Department has been starting an international dance unit while we are having school online. Our Chinese dance was illustrated by a Grade 1 student.

Week 3 Term 3 Knowledge

Grade 2 had a fun time listening to and illustrating the story “Sebastian's Roller Skates” by Caitlin Wachs. These are the blue shining and simmering abandoned skates that Sebastian found on a park bench. 

Sebastian was a risk-taker and tried them on. At first, he fell and eventually he stood up. Shy Sebastian built up his self-confidence each day as he practiced more.


One day, a lady's dog got away from her and Sebastian grabbed the leash. 

They went for quite a spin and this event helped Sebastian become an excellent skater.

 Sebastian bought a new pair of skates and he put the old skates back where he had found them. He got the courage to ask a girl to go skating with him. A little knowledge goes a long way!



Week 2 Term 3 Knowledgeable


Pre-Kindergarten read the story ''Ten Grouchy Groundhogs." It is about groundhogs being cooped up in their hole and they wanted to get out. They develop a bad mood and become angry.

One goes out because he says  the den is too small.

Another groundhog goes out because she wants to take a bath.
Another goes because dancing makes her dizzy.

The 4th goes out because the den is too noisy.


The next groundhog goes out because it is tired of tumbling.





After that, a groundhog stated that she wanted out because of being a rock star. 

This groundhog has a toothache and wants out to see the dentist!

This one wants out because powder makes her sneeze. 



This groundhog wants out because it is spring.


The lonely groundhog wonders where his friends are and goes out too!




All the groundhogs see their shadows and are afraid. Then, they go back home. This story reminds us of our present day situation. We should be content with what we have at home.

Week 1 Term 3

A book spine  is the side of a book. The spine usually has the title of the book and the author's name. A student needs to be careful with the spine or the book pages will start falling out. A popular English activity these days is to make book spine poetry. We made a proper sentence out of these titles. For example, "The happy kid is skateboarding to the ends of the universe."
We made the first letter of our given names in PreK on Seesaw in order to teach the children about the ABC's and letter recognition.

Week 12 Term 2 Library

The librarian introduced the book "Darth Paper Strikes Back." We decided to do some origami. Here is part of the result.

Week 11 Term 2 Library

On Seesaw some of the children have been reading a story and then thinking of a title for it. Some of the titles were- "What Dogs Feel," "Dogs' Emotions," "How Do Dogs Talk," "Information About Dogs," and "Friendly Dog." This activity gave us an avenue to talk about editing. 


Week 1 Term 3 PE

We have been dancing recently in our Seesaw online learning program. Here is a picture from one of the responses from the children. Do the bump!

Grade 2 Week 8

We made 3D shapes with marshmallows and toothpicks. It was a lot more challenging than we thought it would be!


























This week, we worked with grade 1 again and had to think about what materials we could use to make our helicopter stay in the air the longest. Students explored and tested different materials as they used their social skills to communicate their ideas. 








Grade 2 students were builders and  created famous landmarks using legos. They had to thing about the different shapes and designs as they recreated their landmark. They did fantastic!
