This academic year, we have been teaching with a new system in place.
The new system, called STAR, mixes English with special topics to help immerse our students into the language more while doing different activities.
We have added three new special classes:
Timo Teacher is in charge of our music class,
Janna Teacher is in charge of our Theatre class,
And Thom Teacher is in charge of our science class!
Our English teachers teach their special class to a different grade three days a week.
Here are a few words from our teachers about how the past few weeks have been with our new program in place.
*All of the music that we use in the class is either an ILH original songs created by TILT, or a monthly kindergarten song.*
After teaching STAR class, our teachers return to our regular classes and teach normal english after that.
So far, it’s been a lot of fun! We are happy when our kids go home and practice what they’ve learned with us even at home.
