Dear Parents,

I hope you had a great summer and your child is enjoying his/her new classes and teachers at East-West.

This blog will now focus on another grade/class. I’ll continue teaching part-time at East-West and tutoring students from all grades.

If you feel your child needs a private tutor, feel free to contact me!

Camping – Kirirom National Park

Posted by msmartaPS1 | Posted in Homework & home-based activities, Language Arts, Parent-Teacher, School goals, We are reading… | Posted on May 8, 2015

We are reading The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark. This book teaches us that Dark does not have to be scary.

Dark can be EXCITING, KIND, FUN, NECESSARY, FASCINATING, WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL…

One of the reasons Dark is Exciting and Fun is because we can see fireworks and sit around a camp fire. Our students love this idea: Go Camping and Sit around a Camp Fire, and have asked me where and how they can go camping. I’ve told them about Kirirom National Park and thought it could be a good idea to share it with all of you. This place is great for a family holiday surrounded by nature!

I asked them what they’d like to do if they went Camping and these are some of their answers 😉

ANY OTHER IDEAS ABOUT CAMPING HOLIDAYS NEAR PHNOM PENH OR IN CAMBODIA? 

Thank you for your suggestions 🙂

Have a wonderful weekend!

Dear parents,

We are using an exciting reading website! Raz-Kids delivers hundreds of interactive, leveled eBooks spanning 27 levels. Each student has his/her own Student Portal and knows my Login Password.

We’ve had two sessions to help them understand how to use their Student Portal and complete their Reading Assignments. I will ask them to read one book and take a quiz every weekday.

I’d like to ask you to encourage them to use all these online tools we are providing. Interactive learning is very positive for their learning progress and confidence.

We are reading … Charlotte’s Web (E.B. White)

What is a Diamante Poem? A Diamante Poem is a poem in the shape of a diamond. Each line uses specific types of words, like adjectives and -ing verbs. It does not have to rhyme!

Our students created some great Diamante Poems last week and I’m very happy to show you some examples. Because we are reading Charlotte’s Web, we first did contrast poems between Country & City:
