Happy Hearts Day! The Grade 1 students had plenty of activities last February. They celebrated Valentine’s Day in school. There was a program at the auditorium and the children performed a poem recitation and dance number for everyone. On that day as well, all the winners of the Spelling Bee, Math Quiz and Mandarin Spelling Bee were awarded with medals and certificates. The month of February was also a time to learn new lessons in class. In Language Arts, the students made Valentine’s Cards for their loved ones. It was a good way to practice their composition skills. They also learned adverbs and some helping verbs. In Science, the children learned more about Insects, Birds, Mammals and Fish. They watched videos to know more about the animal groups taught. To strengthen their knowledge, the children made booklets and picture collage about these animals. In Geo-History, the topic was about Air. They learned more about air through watching videos and going out of the classroom to feel it. They also made a pin wheel project and played with it in the garden. It was such a fun activity!

In Mathematics, the children learned more about Addition and Subtraction within 100 (with renaming). It’s quite a challenging lesson yet most of them were able to grasp the concept taught. They still need more practice for mastery. They also enjoyed the games we had on this topic.
