Monochrome Collage

Students did a great job cutting out their favorite designs and combining them into a monochrome collage!

Matisse Art Project

We made a Matisse art project by cutting out lots of colorful shapes, and layering them to make an interesting collage!

Pre School Craft

When I think of Summer, I think of sunflowers!
Students painted their hands yellow to make the petals of a sunflower.
In the center, we sprinkled sunflower seeds.
It turned out really pretty!

Donut hats

We miss cooking time!!
Because of the Coronavirus, we have suspended cooking time for a while.
Since we cannot eat real donuts, let's make donut hats! Looks delicious!

Summer School Reading Corner

At American Chatter Box, we all love our reading time.
some days, I want to explore about sunflowers and bees!
On other days, I love rereading books about trains! 
I think it is easier to read in a quiet, cozy and warm environment.
Our students got to enjoy a peaceful time looking at pictures and reading stories.
plan to add more cozy items. 
In your home, what do you do that makes your reading corner warm and cozy?

What's the order?

We did a story sequence worksheet for Hansel and Gretel.
Students enjoyed listening to the story and colouring their own candy house.
Good job!

Pool Party

We had a blast at our mini pool party during Summer School.
We played with bubbles and balls, students even helped me water the plants :D
Here are some pictures!

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Summer school is here! Students painted using handmade stencils to make unique art pieces!
We retold the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears using paper puppets.
Everyone enjoyed themselves!

Pre School Writing

Every month we have a writing session with our Pre School students.
This week we are revising vocabulary related to toys, and numbers!

Practicing English

Storywriting is a useful tool to help improve our English.

But how do I do that?

I hear you out. There are few things to help you improve your story.

: A Holiday in England.

1. Decide on your characters. I will use my perspective to tell my story!
2. When did this happen? How did it happen? Why, what, who.....so many questions to answer! 
3. Think about a beginning, climax and end.That makes it very interesting
4. Describe as much as you can. The easiest way to do this is by using many adjectives! Ex: surprising, lovely, satisfied, relaxed, scary

Let's try!

Last year, I went to England for a short trip. I stayed at a fancy and cozy hotel.
For dinner, I had a huge and satisfying steak. Next morning, I excitedly explored London.
I sat on the London Eye. It was very high but I did not get scared.
Afterwards, I went shopping for gifts. I had to buy four different gifts, so it took a long time!

Now, how about you give it a go!
Good luck~!
