This week’s theme is Sea Animals. We will learn about different sea creatures. We will discover their names and how they look like. We will also make Under the Sea craft. We will hear new stories and review the songs that we have learned. We will also have a field trip at Vin Space. We will make some Christmas decorations in preparation for the upcoming season. It’s going to be a fun-filled week!

We will be learning the concept of Long and Short this week. We will arrange different sizes of red lines from shortest to longest to help us differentiate their length. We will also string beads to make some necklaces to develop our eye and hand coordination and compare our work with others to see which one is longer or shorter. We will continue to learn more about Japan in preparation for our International day on the 28th.
This week’s theme will be Light and Heavy. We will learn the concept of the weight of the object. In this theme we will be painting heavy and light materials to be used for our lesson. We will also compare the objects in the classroom in regards to their weight. We will learn simple songs and stories that relate to the topic. In preparation for International Day, we will be learning about Japan since our class will represent this for the said event. We will learn about their flag, people, language and their food. It’s going to be a great week!
The children of The American School will be collecting books for our newly developed drop in “Reading Corner” in the TAS Elementary Building next to the entrance, from now until the end of the school year.
This literacy project will begin with this letter in the hopes that your students and you (as families) will feel comfortable sharing books with other students and families who can productively occupy this cool little school space to increase literacy options for our educational community.
Please support your child’s participation in this Book Drive Project by collecting and dropping off books at school. Beginning on Monday, November 10th, you will find a book donation box in the Elementary Lobby at arrival and dismissal times. We will stamp your family’s name in each book as a contribution symbol to recognize your efforts as our sincerest appreciation. Encourage your child to go through her/his own books and choose a few gently used reading materials to donate to this new space. If you wish, feel free to go to a book store with your child and buy items to donate, but please feel no pressure to spend unnecessary resources. As we are an American school, we would love to build our English language reading materials, however, we recognize that there are many languages spoken at our school and would therefore be happy to accept children’s reading materials in any language. The school will match this effort through developing a comfortable reading space including carpeting, bean bags, and book cases to house your contributions. The official name of this area is still being investigated, and the school will continue to inform you as new information is uncovered.
If you would like any additional information about this project or would like to volunteer in way, please contact our Elementary PE/Health teacher, Coach Justin (Justin.firstname.lastname@example.org) who has graciously volunteered to spearhead this project.
Please be in touch whenever possible.

This week lesson will be the concept of sizes of Big and Small. We will learn new songs and apply it in our lesson. We will also have fantastic games that are related to the topic. We will also learn how to compare things using our body parts, shapes and available toys inside our classroom.
Have a great Weekend!
