Dear parents, We took our photo in the end of year. Children were doing great trying to be patient and showing the best face in front of camera. They all did a great job. During this week, we took two days to evaluate all children for our end-year student report ready. Thank to all children for their cooperation. This week, we talked about farm animals. What farm animals eat, what farm animals benefit us and how the different animals sound. Language: story: farm animals Have you been to little farm? What do you see there? We shared a story having pictures. We saw hours, cow, goat, sheep, goose, duck, dog, cat, pig and so on. We discussed what they eat and how the benefit people? We could see it clearly from the pictures. We also create different sounds of animals. Music: 我家有个小农场 We had a new song about the farm animals. We created a lyrics by making a sound of animals. 一二三四五六七,一哎一哎唷,我有一个小农场呀,一哎一哎唷,我有 xx(animal- we changed everyday), xxx (the sound of the animal). 我有 xx(animal- we changed everyday), xxx (the sound of the animal). 我有 xx(animal- we changed everyday), xxx (the sound of the animal). 这是我的小动物呀,一哎一哎唷。 Body movement: We follow the music and whatever farm animals they try to be, we make sound of it. Science: 变大?变小? Bigger and bigger or smaller and smaller We had our growing toys in the water which were a shark and a castle. We have been observing what is changing. Children discovered that it was growing up and become bigger and bigger for about a week. This week, we took two of them out...

We are still learning about the transportation. We are glad to have Julian’s grandfather (陈爷爷 / Chen Ye Ye) came to the class this afternoon. Chen Ye Ye was a bus driver. He worked at AC Transit for 33 years. He was honored by the AC Transit Company as a thirty years safe driver. He explained to the children how the public transportation changed from time to time in the Alameda County. Chen Ye Ye also gave each child a sixteen years honored safe driver badges. Thank you Chen Ye Ye for sharing his experience with the children. Party time! This month, the Plum Garden has two birthday stars—Julian and Ethan.

Important dates: 6/18 Last day of school, School party for all students 6/22 First day of Summer Camp Dear parents, One more week and we will finish our school year. After considering how to take care of the fish over the summer, we decided to have the water ready before next school year starts and to have new fish for the next school year. Instead of having new fish at the end of school year, we will have a “growing toy” shaped as a fish and castle. We will experiment with what is going to happen when we put them in the fish tank. Language: 雨靴里的麻雀 We talked about how birds fly. We talked about how they have babies and how they build their nests. Science: Fly! Fly! We had an experiment about how birds fly with cardboard shaped as a bird. We discovered that birds can move their wings so fast in order to fly and they can stay in the air while getting food. We also realized that the convenient airplane is an idea that came from flying birds. Art: 我的风筝 We made our own kite. We fly them when we play outside. Music: We continued singing our songs related to sea animals and birds. Activity: 老鹰捉小鸡 We played a game to end this inquiry named “An eagle catches chicks.” Pei was a chicken and all children were chicks. Feng Laoshi was an eagle. We sang our bird song and every time the song finished, an eagle tried to catch a chick which was left behind. Next week, We will move on to farm animals. What do...
