Do you know we have 206 bones in body together make up the skeleton, which supports our bodies.

“Joint” is the name given to a part of the body where two bones meet, such as your elbows or your knees, Most of your joints can move.

There are seven continents in the World. Antarctica is farther south than any other continent, and it is very cold there.

In Antarctica, the snow builds up into layers of ice. The ice covers nearly all of the land. This is known as the Antarctic ice sheet, and it is very thick. 

We had have learned many sound of letters, and now we can try to blend the sounds together. 

It is the time to decorate the Christmas tree.

Chinese Activities

 

I can sound all the consonants and sing the consonant song.

"ü" is a very special vowel, it can only be spelled with some consonants. Let's check it out.

 Can you repeat after me? "k, k, 美丽蝌蚪k k k."

 I matched all the sounds with a little help from teacher. 

 I start to read the characters with the initial sound.

I like to spell with the single vowels in the four tones. "l-ǎ- 喇,喇叭!"

 I'm checking if all the spelling I did is correct.  

 Let me write down all the words I spelled. 

 Do you remember these characters we learned before?

Can you pick two characters to make a word?

The word I made is "家人/ family.

Who knows what this flower is?  It's plum blossom. Plum blossoms often bloom most vibrantly even amidst the harsh winter snow. It is symbol for resilience and perseverance in the face of adversity.

 Here's a poem of Plum blossoms by Wang Anshi/王安石.

"墙角数枝梅,凌寒独自开。遥知不是雪,为有暗香来。"

Special Events

 

Ginger Bread House Night

 

It is our annual gingerbread house night. We are so happy to see all the families built and designed the gingerbread house with their children together. All the house turns out fantastic. Two thumbs up to everyone.

 

Fire Station Donation

 

The world would be a much better place if more people felt true empathy for those less fortunate than themselves and acted accordingly. Helping children from a young age teaches them that even the smallest child can make a big difference in the lives of others.

Let's making our favorite chocolate chip cookies for the firefighters. 

 I am measuring the brown sugar.

 I dropped the cookie dough to the baking sheet by a spoon.

 Chocolate chip cookies are ready to be sent out.

 I want to help community like a firefighter when I grow up.

 

Book Exchange

I love my friends so I am so excited for the book exchange.  Now,  Ms. Dawn is labeled a number for each book.

How do we do the book exchange? First, we need to draw a number from a basket. Second, we have to match the number we drew to the number on the book. 

 Finally, we all are happy to get a book from each other.

It's fun to have a pajama on in a school day. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone.

Birth of Jesus

 

Mary and Joseph had to travel to Bethlehem because of an order from the Roman emperor. When they arrived they were told that there were no places to stay, all the inns were full.

They settled down on the hay in a stable with animals sleeping......

That night an exciting, wonderful thing happened: Mary and Joseph had a baby! 

This wasn't just any baby, he was Baby Jesus!  The creator of the whole world, the King of Kings, and the one who would save the world!

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believe in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

--John 3:16
