Last week the students celebrated the fact that we are 100 days smarter than the first day of this school year.
On their 100th day of school the students were asked questions involving the number one hundred. Some examples of our student’s answers:
I wish I had 100: “puppies.”
I wouldn’t want 100: “brothers.”
If I had RMB100 I would: “buy an orca.”
When I am 100 I will: “still be alive.”
Having 100 “iPads” would be fun.
I can make 100 “Quartz blocks in Minecraft.”
I can eat 100: “peas”
I can’t eat 100: “potatoes”
I can do a “mule kick” 100 times.
The French Heritage students also made a small inventory of what they have done so far to learn English.
In 100 days grade 2-3 memorized about 240 vocabulary words.
In 100 days grade 4-5 memorized about 1000 words vocabulary words.
In 100 days we read about 40 books.
In 100 days we published about 11 stories.
In 100 days we finished about 8 units of grammar worksheets.
Phew.. that seems like a lot of work that has been done already. But of course our learning doesn’t stop here. And let’s not forget that these students are also doing their very best in learning their basic subjects such as math, geography, history, science and literature in French. Switching between two languages is not always an easy thing to do. Our goal is to make as many connections between English and French as possible to become stronger in both languages. And you know what? It’s not about being the best, but it’s about being better than yesterday! #Day101
