What will we be learning in quarter 2?
Quarter 1 fun in the kinder room!
It is amazing how fast quarter 1 zoomed by! But what is even more amazing? How much we learned in only 43 days! This year, kindergarten is full of curious children who have already published their first story and collected and analysed data about the weather! They have learned what symbols to use when comparing numbers and what it means to be a good citizen. They have shared a lot of laughs, searched for Pete the Cat, and learned how to use a mouse in the computer lab. They have cooperated as a class and spelled S-U-P-E-R 10 times; celebrating with popcorn, pajamas and a movie! Check out us in action!
Our Weekly Schedule
I was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia but also attended school in Northern Ireland where my parents and family are from. Being exposed to two different cultures was a unique experience and not only opened my eyes to travel but makes me who I am today. Now I get to live in the tropical Dominican Republic with my own international family, my husband Mr. Brown (Canadian), and my daughters Keira (born in China) and Maya (born in Guatemala). Working at ISS means I get to meet and teach awesome new students from all over the world; instilling roots so they know where they come from but giving them wings to fly! I believe that respectful, caring bonds with children and their families are the vital foundation for a wonderful kindergarten experience.
