Grade 6 and 7 students and teachers throw a birthday party
Grade 6 and 7 students began the term with a series of entry point activities for their IMYC unit on Celebration, which was interpreted through the lens of birthday celebrations. Students and teachers planned a birthday party, decorated the room, baked birthday cakes, prepared gifts, and wrote cards for each other. Students had an opportunity to practice their English rehearsing the birthday song, study the chemistry of fireworks, and make connections with their peers and teachers as they planned a celebratory event together. The takeaway for students was a shared understanding of the cultural and social value of celebrations. In the coming weeks, the TH School community will prepare to welcome Tet with many activities honoring important Vietnamese festivities.
