Hello! Please see the attached PDF which details parent participation for World Read Aloud Day.
this says it all – nothing to add. Beautiful.
While reading about kids and their ‘passion,’ one tip I have taken to heart is to ask parents directly about what they have observed as their child’s passion. Or ‘passions.’
Since you are the adults who are closest to your child, it is really helpful for all of us to get your input.
Some children find the question of what “passion” means very difficult to understand, and so this input will be invaluable for your child and for us.
It may not always be the obvious hobby or activity that really stirs your child. And maybe that’s exactly what we need to hear about, talk about, discuss etc in the weeks ahead.
I’m looking forward very much to seeing where this all goes – and where we end up
5W students – let’s watch this together, discuss and then please leave a comment below giving an example of what you should do for each of the 5 “A’s”
A video (recommended by Kiva) from PovertyCure discussing the importance of ‘doing’ microfinance right. Because if it’s not done right, loans can easily lead to more problems, more debt and more impoverishment
5W students – could you please leave a comment explaining:
1. what you think poverty is
2. do you think it is ‘fair’ that some people earn hundreds (sometimes thousands) of times more money than others
Free verse – slam poetry
Hopefully we do make a difference
Has your child been asking you how many people in your office/team/floor/organisation there are? And if so, what do you think the ‘probability’ of any 2 of them (or more) sharing a birthday is? Well that’s because we’ve been working out this famous problem here at YIS.
Of all the classes in Elementary at YIS, only 1 class (Mrs. Saito’s class 1S) – this was the ‘experimental’ result.
However, we worked out in that a class of 16 children like ours (according to Professor Haruna) – there is a 0.32 (32%) chance of any 2 children sharing the same birthday. So we would have expected about a third of classes to have children sharing a birthday!
Read this page on the web for a full explanation – or better still – ask your child.
Have a great weekend
Mr. W and the 5W Team
