9/12 Wed CP Spanish

Hola!

Kinder- 5/6 grade
This week we marched around the room singing and learning el tren de los dias de la semana (days of the week). We started a new bilingual book Margaret y Margarita about two new friends speaking a different language. We also learned how to intoduce ourselves to new friends in Spanish, and ask the question como te llamas tu? We will be focusing on conversational Spanish this semester. Older kiddos also properly answered questions on el tiempo, dia, estacion y el mes. They will be writing answers to these questions on the board weekly. The phrases for this week are, me llamo y como te llamas tu?

Feliz fin de semana!

Gracias
Maria Rodriguez

> What a fun first day of class we had singing the alphabet, days of the week, and months of the year songs. We learned about the letter A, and had fun looking for all the letter A’s in Ann the Acrobat.
> Books we read, Albert the Albatross, Ten Apples Up On Top, and Johnny Appleseed. >
> We greeted each other in Spanish ( buenos dias ), and learned about septiembre in Spanish as well. >
> We made a special first day of school hand craft. Cruz, your craft was left behind, we will get it to you next week. Mrs. Larson also came to visit us for our music lesson of the week. >
> Fruits of the Spirit will be our scripture focus for this year. Love was our discussion for today, we gave examples on how we can show Gods love to our friends and family. We also colored necklaces with our fruits of the spirit. >
> Thank you for sharing your precious kiddos with us!

RR 5/7 – Monday Highlights & Homework (end of the yr prep!) + field day date & location

Happy Mother’s Day! I hope your day is richly blessed! Here are highlights from this past Monday.

SPANISH with Mrs. Lomas:
*K/1 students have been practicing for the end of the year presentation song
A-E-I-O-U.
*1/2 students reviewed colors and wrote the Spanish word for the color that corresponds.
*3/4 students reviewed months and dates in Spanish.
*5/6 students reviewed months and dates in Spanish and we also talked about the end of the year presentations. +Each student picked a topic to bring next Monday all about Mexico.

SCIENCE:
We completed our world of water graph. We hypothesized how all life on earth could survive with the limited amount of fresh water on earth. Then, we saw a video of the water table/water cycle.

MARTIAL ARTS:
We continued fitness testing this week. The results are very interesting. Some students have been consistently doing their fitness homework have demonstrated so by statistical data. I am observing more students in appropriate clothing for athletic activities this week. Thank you to those parents that are ensuring your children are wearing footwear that supports their feet in a manner that reduces the chance of injury.
We will finish up this next week testing those that have been absent and then play some active games that are fun but still increase athletic opportunity.

Respectfully,
Shihan Yocham

Last week’s highlights:
MUSIC:
Reminder: Bring costumes, and for grades 3-6, please make sure to bring your recorders!!!!

MARTIAL ARTS:
We rehearsed demonstrations for the end of the year presentations during class. I am a bit concerned about how the students will perform during their demonstration. I observed that some students who were able to demonstrate the martial art techniques in a manner that earned them their rank have had a significant drop in skill. This is not because they are incapable but instead as a result of not doing their homework. The homework has been the same since the beginning of the year. I reminded students that they will shine either way but if they pick up doing their homework this week, they have an opportunity to shine in a manner which they will be proud; if they continue to not do their homework they will shine as an example of not knowing what to do. Please support your child’s demonstration performance by requiring them to practice.

Determination and perseverance will consistently win over natural talent that has become lazy. I would like each of you to be pleased with what is publically demonstrated by your child next week. Please gift them the opportunity to shine by requiring that they do their homework practice.

SCIENCE:
We completed our world of water graph. We hypothesized how all life on earth could survive with the limited amount of fresh water on earth. Then, we saw a video of the water table/water cycle.

SPANISH with Mrs. Lomas:
*K/1 students have been practicing for the end of the year presentation song
A-E-I-O-U.
*1/2 students reviewed colors and wrote the Spanish word for the color that corresponds.
*3/4 students reviewed months and dates in Spanish.
*5/6 students brought information to put our presentation together, all about Mexico. Thank you students for your great work!

ART:
*K-1 finishing our butterflies
*1-2 painting our clay serpents
*3-6 worked on the back drop the musical performances/ finishing projects for the big show

Recess fun:

Highlights from last week-

Everyone got to play with centripetal force, using marbles and a cup. We explored how water is cohesive and reviewed adhesion vs cohesion.

COMMUNICATIONS;

We watched a video on how cookie monster handles discipline and self-control.
We played “broken telephone”. Understanding how our words can easily be misunderstood, we find it’s all the more important to watch what words come out of our mouth‘s.

Parents who signed up for ACH bank draft, your final draft for this school year (May tuition) will process at the beginning of this next week. Thank you, and have an amazing weekend!

Also, this week Mrs. Kaderli will be out helping family in Dallas but we will have fun in P.E. with Mrs. Boyda. Mrs. Boyda has experience teaching kid’s fitness and will be our new Friday Wilderness Science teacher too! We are excited to welcome her to the team!

MARTIAL ARTS:
The Tuesday classes are demonstrating their leadership maturation at a higher level again. This photo is of the 1st and 2nd grade class. Their mission was to lead their own class in an appropriate and functional manner. All classes except for K-1 class has achieved this level of leadership. This week each student with a pin stripe was to lead one of the techniques then turn the leadership over to another student. Most are looking better than ever. It is becoming continuously more clear of who is most consistently doing their homework. The homework is the same as it has been from the beginning of the year. Students should be perfectly practicing each punch, kick, and stance a minimum of twenty times daily. The kata and vocabulary a minimum of five times.
image1.jpeg

In the class on Monday (Martial Arts)we mixed the fitness part up and performed a variety of strength exercises in repetition to increase cardio health. Please remember the homework is still the same as before regarding push ups, crunches, and running. At this point each student should be doing the number of push ups they achieved during the tests at the beginning of the year and add ten more to the numbers. The running section lately has been for endurance so instead of three 40 yard sprints we are running continuously for 10 or more minutes. Way to go!

Parents, please remember to follow the dress code found in the online student handbook. It’s very important that girls wear shorts under their skirts as the children perform front and side kicks, lunges, and squats as part of their conditioning. Also, please make sure your child is wearing appropriate shoes for athletic activities. We have a number of students that are doing athletic physical movements in boots, slipper type shoes, crocks, etc. Shihan Yochum would like to reiterate that all students wear footwear which will support and cushion the students’ body for athletic activities. Thank you!
Blessings,
Angela Turner, Director
