Highlights from this week.

UAE National Day

It is a 4 day weekend/holiday There is no school tomorrow or Sunday.

 This week: We had a week full of UAE activities! We learned that Dubai is in the UAE, that the UAE is a country, and it is where we live! We read books like One Humpy Grump Camel, A is for ArabiaTwo Great Leaders, and Noura’s Numbers.  During centers, we made camels, made a falcon, and watched a video about the National anthem.

CELEBRATIONS!–  We had wonderful UAE parental involvement today. Thanks to our 5 parents (‘sParisa mom, Ellie’s mom, Jasimine and Amani’s mom, Khizr’s mom and Gia’s mom, and Mariam’s mom) who came and helped out with our UAE centers. They took small groups around different activities. Thank you to all the Emirati family’s in Pre-K, KG-1 and KG-2 who brought in UAE foods for us to enjoy.

The fun will continue today from 5-10 pm, so bring the family for more, if the kids are not too tired out already. Don’t miss out on the all new photos on Flickr!

National Day Update

Dear Parents, 
To followup on the National Day parent information you received earlier today from UAS, we just want to clarify a few things. 
PK and KG1 decided not to attend the outside activities that the Emirati Club has organized. Although these students have done a great job, we felt that most of the activities were not as age appropriate for our little ones. So instead we have organized our own UAE Fun Day for Wednesday. It will be packed full of exciting activities and we want to THANK our many parent volunteers assisting us! 
Please allow your child to dress in UAE National Dress or UAE colors (red, green, white and black) forWednesday. Also, send snack and water bottles as usual. 
Thank you so much for supporting our Early Years experiences!

We planted our plants in dirt and they are growing in the window in class. The children love watering them everyday and watching to see how much they are growing.

Rio, Ellie and Khirz giving there caring box.

We played in the new drama room, the theme right now is bakery and flower shop.

 Finally, all of our hard work paid off. We presented our support staff with our kindness boxes. The students were so proud of themselves. They brought in the items, placed them in the boxes, painted the boxes and made cards for each person. Our class was able to fill 8 boxes for support staff. Thank you to the parents for bringing in those items. The students then told everyone thank you and handed them the boxes.

Highlights from this week.

 SEEDS AND PLANTS– The kids are enjoying watching their seeds grow. We will be planting them in dirt next week. I’m always amazed myself that life comes from a tiny seed that looks all dried up! They have been amazed too. It will be fun to see the growth that occurs over the long weekend.

We have started our new unit, we are talking about Homes and what animals live in what type of home.

Reed was a night and a dragon with 5 tails.

Last day in the drama room. The TA’s are working on changing the theme of our drama room. So next week there will something new in there. I was out today, I was coaching at a swimming meet, but heard from Ms. Derhyll that the kids had a wonderful and fun day.
