Welcome to our fourth blog for the month of January.
This week, a few of Shooting Star students who got infected with flu got recovered and have gradually come back to school. We are expecting for a full house next week!
As part of our UOI, we wanted to know what our parents do, where they work, and how they help the community. With that in mind, we took an interview sheet home with three questions that we wanted to ask; What do you do? Where do you work? and How do you help the people in the community? After gathering the information that we wanted to know, we are going have a class presentation which means each student will tell the class about it. And for the presentation, we have made a self-assessment form with a couple of criteria wherein students can assess their their presentation performance right after they have done it. Criteria are as follows; I looked at the audience, I spoke loudly and clearly, I kept my hands and body still. They are going to encircle the sad, neutral, or happy emoji according to their own assessment. We are going to have our presentation once we collected all the forms. It’s going to be an exciting task for everyone. Knowing what each parents do in the community is a wonderful thing.
Guess what? One of Shooting Star parents came to share about their profession as health workers. They showed us how they diagnose the patients. As a doctor, listening to the patient is the very first thing he/she does. After listening to the complain of the patient, a doctor examines the patient by using a stethoscope, once the examination is done, a doctor thinks what kind of illness the patient has, and then treat the patient. Thank you, doctors for keeping the community healthy. And thank you for showing us the different kinds of equipment you use and for allowing us to use the stethoscope. It was a wonderful thing listening to our heartbeat.
It may be tempting to hide in the classroom in winter to keep warm, but outdoor play is essential for our well-being all year long. As we spent time in the cold, we developed resilience and that’s why we still walked to Nambu park despite of the cold weather. As we moved our body, we felt warm but ops, we still need to wear our jacket.
Have a fantastic weekend everyone.
