At the kindergarten, we have invited our students to come and join us for half a school day the past two weeks. Everyone has been checking their temperature and washing up often.
We also have had English class and craft spread out as much as we can.
Even though a lot of things in our schedule are different, we have made as much of our daily activities as normal as possible.
Yesterday, our teachers each spent an hour calling everyone in their class who decided to stay home. It was so nice to reconnect with each other and we hope we can do it again another time.
We also have been making YouTube videos for everyone staying home to make sure they can still learn with us!
Right now, everyone has a lot of extra free time with their kids. Try to practice anything they’ve learned in school, whether it’s old Project BOB books, our YouTube lessons, or just talking with teachers in our video calls.
We miss you and hope we can return to our new normal soon.
Today is Earth Day! Do you know how to celebrate Earth Day?
“Reduce” means to make less waste. Every day, we throw away so much trash! So we want to do things that create less trash.
“Reuse” means to use again and again. We want to buy less things that get thrown away. Instead, we want things that last a long time!
“Recycle” means to use something you already own for a new use. An old T-shirt can be used as a rag, or an empty box can be cleaned and hold something new. We also can send our plastic bottles and cardboard away to be recycled.
This week, we learned a new song with Timo Teacher and Thom Teacher called “This is Our World.” We sang about picking up trash and helping our world.
Another way we can help the world this month is to stay safe from the virus. If we can limit our trips outside, cover our mouths, and wash our hands, we will be helping each other 🙂
Let’s be considerate of each other and the Earth! Happy Earth Day!
Lately, times have been tough. There are many things we cannot control. It can be difficult to stay positive. But at International Language House, we are still working hard to be able to provide good English opportunities for you and your family!
In March, our students practiced an original song with Timo Teacher and it sounded very good! We decided we wanted to share the song with everyone at home, so please enjoy this YouTube video we made just for you!
Together, you and your child can sing as if you are Here With Us 🙂
