Publishing Parties K 5

K5 students created timelines of their lives by sequencing photos and drawings of events that occurred at different ages--a picture from each year. This was a great activity to tie with their social studies unit. When they read books about Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks, they noticed that all of the books had timelines or highlights of their lives.

First grade writers published realistic fiction stories and shared them with parents, students and teachers after five weeks of hard work. Their room moms brought in tasty snacks to share for this meaningful celebration. In addition, the school librarian, Ms. Kim, offered to place barcodes on these books so other APIS students can check out these wonderful books in the future. 2

The second graders studied informational text during their reading and writing workshop. As they were reading, they used the table of contents, index, and glossary to find information. They also read a lot of nonfiction books, studied their features and decided on a topic. They checked out books related to their topic for further research. Some examples of the topics the students wrote about are: Cheetahs, Deer, Praying Mantis, Raccoons, Spiders, and Dolphins.

Grade 3 also celebrated informational writing by showing off their knowledge of wolves, squid, flowers, and even gymnastics! Students were the "experts" that day and enjoyed explaining the fascinating features of their topics.

Grade 4 students created non-fiction books on a topic of their choice using iBook Author. They had to display their knowledge of nonfiction text features, while also adding quotes from experts, supporting details, main ideas, expert vocabulary, and their thinking.

Science Brought to Life for Grade 1 Students

G

rade 1 students ventured outside of APIS to discover and experience science in a different way. On February 7, the class headed to Seoul’s Rolling Ball Museum and the Invention Museum. At these museums, they saw and experimented with different ways objects move with various types of force. Students enjoyed these various hands-on activities that helped them understand gravity, balance and motion better. Above all, first graders learned that science can be fun! The Grade 1 class is excited to visit the Rolling Ball Museum.

Students interact with an exhibit called the falling woodpecker at the Invention Museum.

Reading Buddies:

Sharing the Love of Reading Across Grade Levels

B

uilding community, encouraging student readers, and learning from each other are just a few of the many success stories emerging from the Grade 2 and Grade 5B classes joining together as reading buddies. Ms. Elaine Lee and Mr. Jeff Underhill started their reading buddy program in the beginning of February. Every other Wednesday, the two classes meet and spend time reading together. Each second grade student is assigned to a fifth grade buddy and they meet with the same buddy each time. During these times, the buddies bring books to share with each other and spend time reading out loud. The reading buddy program is designed to align with the Reader’s Workshop curriculum that is used in both classrooms. Ms. Lee and Mr. Underhill select certain skills that their students are working on and incorporate those skills into the reading buddy time. Ms. Lee has noticed that her students have already gained valuable experience in sharing with their partners; asking questions while they are reading, talking about books, working on their fluency, and predicting as they read together. They will continue to learn and develop new skills through each meeting. In the future, Ms. Lee hopes that the fifth grade students can demonstrate book clubs and help the second graders learn how to publish their own stories using the iPads. Both classes anxiously await the next time they get to meet with their buddy and are always really excited to see each other and to share books they have selected with their buddy. Working together in this way has created a special bond between the buddies. It is now even more exciting when they pass each other in the hallways, or when they attend each others publishing parties and can encourage their buddy in other areas of their schoolwork.

Valentine's Day

Middle School students were allowed to wear their pajamas to school on this day. The lunch activity for “Pajama Day” was the “Slipper Toss.” Many students participated and had a lot of fun. They competed with each other to see how far they could toss their slippers without using their hands. “PJ Day was so fun! It was so comfortable. I wanted to wear it the whole day,” said a 6th grade student named Cassendra Park. Middle School students were allowed to come to school with crazy hair styles. Some students dyed their hair with bright colors like blue and red, while others came with wacky hair decorations. The lunch activity for “Wicky Wacky Hair Day” was the “Wicky Wacky Relay Race.” Students went out to the field and participated despite the fact that it was freezing cold. “SRC makes very fun things. Crazy hair day was so fun!” said Lizzie Lee (Grade 6). Because the primary colors of APIS are yellow, orange, and green, 6th graders wore yellow clothes, 7th graders wore orange clothes, and 8th graders wore green clothes. The lunch activity for “APIS Pride Day” was a “Class Dodgeball game.” A mixture of yellow, orange, and green outfits on the gym floor made an interesting scene to watch. This activity built teamwork and deeper friendship among the players.

During lunch, students tried to find the heart shaped papers that MS SRC members hid throughout the school. Students who found the hearts received chocolates and sweets for reward.

Friday, February 14 was not only the final day of Spirit Week, but it was also Valentine’s Day. On this day students were allowed to dress down. Students who wore red, white, or pink received chocolates from SRC members during lunch. “I think SRC members this year made more entertaining events than last year!” said Leo Rho (Grade 7).

KIMEA/KAIAC National Honor Music Festival 2014

O

n February 14-15 APIS sent 22 student musician delegates to participate in the National Honor Music Festival held at Seoul Foreign School (SFS). This annual festival is for the finest high school musicians in band, orchestra, and choir. Students are accepted only after successfully completing a rigorous audition process the previous fall. APIS students joined 215 other musicians from 11 international schools throughout Korea to comprise the National Honor Choir, National Honor Orchestra, and National Honor Band. The guest directors for each group are top conductors, educators, and clinicians in their field and typically work with university-level music ensembles. Dr. Tim Robblee (band) from Northwestern University, Dr. Tim Peter (choir) from Stetson University, and Maestro Jong-Jin Lee (orchestra) from Korea University and Yonsei University were able to bring out the very best of the students. Rehearsals were highly energetic and the passionate connection from all three conductors while working with students was evident to anyone in the room. Musicians were also engaged in every moment, especially during a Skype session with one of the band music composers, Jonathan Newman. At the end of the concert, the students did not want to leave the concert stage, opting instead for autographs and photos. Jinwoo Choi (Grade 10) said, “Dr. Robblee was too special to ever forget!” Another student reflected on the event and said being in the National Honor Choir was inspirational and gave renewed joy in singing. APIS Band Director Sophie Holbrook had Dr. Robblee as a teacher during her middle and high school years in California. “He was the most motivational teacher I ever had and I became a band director because of him. It was a great pleasure to work with him now as a colleague and I continue to learn from his musical wisdom and knowledge. It was so much fun to see my students learn from my teacher!” The two-day festival included many hours of rehearsal, instrumental and vocal sectionals, and a final concert in the SFS Lyso Center for Performing Arts. Many APIS parents, students, community members, and administrators were in attendance. This festival is the highlight of the year for KIMEA and KAIAC music events. Planning has begun and students are already looking forward to NHF 2015!

National History Day By Carly Althauser, MS ELA/Social Studies Teacher

T

his was the second year APIS participated in National History Day (NHD), a months-long project in which students research a topic in history and create a project to present in a competition. The theme for 2013-2014 was “Rights and Responsibilities” and all students conducted research related to that theme. This year, APIS had 12 students present their websites and documentaries on February 22 at Seoul International School, and we had several students who received awards: Brian Kim (Grade 12) won 3rd place for his website, “Nationhood Denied” on the rights denied to the Cherokee Indian tribe in the 1800s; Gia Kim (Grade 8) and Huck Jun Hong (Grade 8) won The Royal Asiatic Society of Korea Award for Excellence in Korean History for their website, “Murder of Humanity: Korean Rights During Japanese Occupation;” and Jakin Jeong (Grade 7), Clara Park (Grade 6), and James Park (Grade 8) won the Middle School Quiz Master Award for winning a quiz game on history and geography played on the day of the competition. NHD takes up a lot of time and is a demanding after-school club; congratulations to all students who participated and completed a project! Also thank you to APIS teachers Mr. Niman, Mr. Underhill, and Mr. Forrester for volunteering to judge during the competition!

The theme this year was "Rights and Responsibilities."

Clara Park (Grade 8) and James Park (Grade 8) receive Middle School Quiz Master Awards. Jakin Jeong (Grade 7) also won this award.

Jackie Lee Wins Bronze Medal at the Korea Science and Engineering Fair

C

ombining her own experience with her interest in biology, Jackie Lee (Grade 11), competed in and won an award at the Korea Science and Engineering Fair held January 19, 2014. Students from all over Korea came to participate in this fair held by Korea Science Service and sponsored by Intel Korea. While most participants currently attend a science high school in Korea, Jackie was one of only a few students to compete from an international school. Jackie’s project, titled “Loss of antibiotic resistance on bacteria according to different types of sugar sources”, was entered into the biology section of the competition. Students could also submit their works to other sections including physics, chemistry, earth science, environmental science, or engineering. The idea for Jackie’s project came from her experience having a skin condition called atopy (a kind of eczema) when she was younger. Children with atopic dermatitis (atopy) are told to restrain from eating chocolate or sugar-abundant snacks, and Jackie Lee (second from the right) poses with her award. She will be traveJackie was therefore unable to eat candy or ling to Jordan in August this year to compete in Expo-Sciences Asia. chocolate as a child. She wanted to explore this relationship between sugar and bacteria for her science project, so she set out to discover the effect of sugar on a bacteria’s chemical response (specifically their antibiotic resistance). During the course of her experiment, she learned that sugar does not cause bacteria to become more resistant to antibiotics (which has been a common thought), but that certain sugars make bacteria more sensitive to antibiotics because the sugar responds strangely when the atopy bacteria encounters chemicals in our body. Jackie won the bronze medal for her experiment. Because of this accomplishment, she will be participating in an international competition held in Jordan this August as part of the Korean national team. Jackie hopes to continue to study biology. Because of her research on sugar and atopy, she hopes to continue her studies by researching the relationship between sugar and other types of bacteria such as food poisoning (salmonella). Congratulations to Jackie on such an amazing accomplishment and we look forward to hearing about all of her future successes as well!

National Merit Scholarship Finalists

C

ongratulations to APIS seniors Chris (Ye Darm) Kim and Jeremiah Kim, the two brothers who have been selected as National Merit Finalists! According to the National Merit Scholarship website, the program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®)—a test which serves as an initial screening of approximately 1.5 million entrants each year—and by meeting published program entry/participation requirements. Of the 1.5 million entrants, some 15,000 Semifinalists are notified in February that they have advanced to Finalist standing. All winners of Merit Scholarship® awards are chosen from the Finalist group based on their abilities, skills, and accomplishments. A variety of information is available for National Merit Scholarship selectors to evaluate: the Finalist's academic record, information about the school's curricula and grading system, test scores, the high school official's written recommendation, information about the student's activities and leadership, and the Finalist's own essay. Beginning in March and continuing to mid-June, NMSC notifies approximately 8,000 Finalists that they have been selected to receive a Merit Scholarship® award. Merit Scholarship awards are of three types: National Merit® $2500 Scholarships, Corporate-sponsored Merit Scholarship awards, and College-sponsored Merit Scholarship awards. Mrs. Shana Russell, APIS’ College Counseling Director, is particularly proud of the Kim brothers, stating that, “being a finalist demonstrates a strong commitment to their academics and their own future, so this (potential award) will be considered positively in the college application process. Anytime a student wins national recognition for their commitment to education is a good thing.”

Secondary Japanese Students Celebrate Hinamatsuri

M

arch 3 signifies Hinamatsuri, or Girl’s Day, in Japan. To celebrate, families with daughters put out their display of Hina dolls which usually include an Emperor, Empress, attendants, and musicians. Beginning in February, the Japanese Embassy in Seoul also began celebrating with their own displays at the embassy. With an opportunity to expose her students to Japanese culture, Ms. Naomi Anno planned a field trip for her secondary Japanese students to visit the embassy to learn more about this festival. In addition to viewing the doll displays, students also visited the embassy library, full of magazines, books, dvds, and Japanese cartoons that they could peruse. While on their field trip, the APIS Japanese students also visited the Dongdaemun Gallery to see a display on omiyage. Omiyage are souvenirs popular in Japan and are often wrapped in a very beautiful or unique way. At the Dongdaemun Gallery, students viewed all of the omiyage packaging and designs and wrote down their three favorite designs. The day would not be complete without a traditional Japanese meal. The classes headed to a Japanese restaurant in Sinchon, famous for Udon noodles. Students were required to order their food in Japanese, providing great practice for them to use their language skills in natural conversations. They had a variety of choices and enjoyed getting to sample many varieties of Japanese food. As an extension of their field trip, grade 9 Japanese students also visited the Japanese School in Seoul. At the school, they received a tour of the facilities by the headmaster. The tour was given in Japanese, providing the students with another opportunity to practice their conversational language skills. They viewed the school facilities, classrooms, and even practiced greeting the elementary students.

“ Like Kimchi on a Hotdog ”

O

n February 6, Ms. Hayne's STEM class and Ms. Pendleton's Industrious Design class journeyed to the brand new Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA). As both APIS classes focus on the ingenuity of design, the museum made for a perfect field trip destination. The group enjoyed wandering the expansive galleries, stopping to focus on two specific shows. While visiting “The Aleph Project,” students experienced a living, breathing technological organism, actually stepping inside a piece of installation art which reacted to their touch and presence. In “Home Within a Home,” students were asked to design their own dream home inspired by the show. Windows, comfortable seating, and quiet spaces were popular across the board. According to Albert Cho (Grade 11), " 'Home Within A Home' was an inspiring mix of the two totally opposite styles: Korean and American; just like kimchi on a hotdog!". All joking aside, the students witnessed firsthand the fusion of science, contemporary art, and design in these two shows.
