Despite this unprecedented situation we are facing, there’s a lot to look forward to the festive and beautiful month of May. Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day – a special day to celebrate our OMS moms, and our Art Exhibition.
I will be introducing my students to some famous artists and their work and encourage them to create their own versions at home. I understand that households may not have many arts supplies, so I want my students to use anything and everything that they can create their own renditions of the artists. I will discuss it during our zoom meetings and ask the students for their ideas as well. It is our plan to have a virtual Art Exhibition this year, something new, something we are looking forward to.
I am committed to making sure my students are well – equipped for the next grade level and will continue to give lessons and presentations that will allow them to do so.
For the month of May, as per our school curriculum, students will continue learning the parts of speech, literature reading, and creative writing in Language. In Math, lessons will be to polish and be confident with the four math operations: practicing computation and word problems.
Our First Grade Cultural Arts lessons will be learning about Endangered Species, and Carnivores/ Herbivores/Omnivores for zoology.
Types of Plants – edible/ medicinal/ poisonous for Botany, and the continent of North America and the 50 states as an oral report for Geography.
In History, we will learn the comparisons between Primitive and Modern Man in terms of food , clothing, and shelter.
Our Second Grade Cultural Arts lessons for zoology will be an introduction to invertebrates, and its differences with vertebrates.
For Botany, using the Classified Nomenclature Cards we will learn about the parts of flowers.
The understanding of maps and the continent of Asia and its countries will be the topic of the oral report for Geography.
For History, it will be the Timeline of food, clothing, and shelter.
Looking forward to another fun filled month with our busy bees. Thank you for being patient with me with this new method of instruction as I am not tech savvy. I am a willing learner and will continue to do so until I get proficient and confident.
