Spring Break is here! I wanted to wish all of you a wonderful break!
I thought this would be a good time to mention something we will need for our last Unit of Inquiry of the year (UOI 6).
Our last UOI for the year is called “Journeys”. This unit will start until June, but I am sending this to you know because many of you will be traveling over the next two weeks. This Journeys unit will be geography intense and the students will be studying countries and continents around the world. One of the projects the students will complete is to write a postcard “from” a country we will have studied. In order to expose them to what in fact a postcard actually is, I would like to ask of you a favor.
If you are traveling over this spring break: Would you please send the class a postcard TO UAS from wherever you are? Wherever you travel to, please just pick up a postcard and write to the entire class 1KP. Please tell us…
*where you are
*what you have seen there
*what it’s like there
Please mail it to UAS from the foreign country if you can. We would like it mailed from the foreign country and not from Dubai so we can have a look at the stamp and date from a post office outside of Dubai.
Please send it to:
Ms. Kristen Prideaux
Universal American School Dubai
P.O Box 79133, Al Rashidiya
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
If you are NOT traveling over this break: You can still help us greatly!! Please contact your child’s grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins, and friends in other countries. Please ask one of them to send a postcard from their country to us here in Dubai! Ask them to write the same information on the postcard as stated above and mail it to the same address as well.
I haven’t told the students about this yet as it again, is not relevant until our last unit of the year. Of course, I think this will make it more exciting as well if you do not tell them what we are up to! Imagine how exciting it will be for them to hear me read out a postcard from you that was delivered to school without them knowing! They are beautiful to display as well. As I receive them, I will hold on to them until we start the Journeys unit.
Thank you for helping us learn! I hope you have a fabulous Spring Break!
