|Mr. Antonio's Grade 2|
Last week QISS Lower School had its final assembly of the year. Throughout the school year each class has given presentations to the rest of the students. At each of our assemblies we have focused on one ESLR - Intelligence, Courage, Sensitivity, Compassion, and Vitality. Some presentations taught us about the ESLRs, and some taught us cool things like 8 Kinds of Intelligence and the 6+1 Traits of Writing. Mr. Tony also worked with each grade to give a presentation showing a way that we can use what we learn in counseling to be better students and friends to our classmates. The Lower School Student Council used the assemblies to make important announcements, too.
For the first Lower School assembly, Grade 2 prepared a video to teach everyone about the 6+1 Traits of Writing. Each student chose one trait to explain to everyone, and then gave both a good and a bad example. They did a great job! Here is the video if you would like to see it again:
The other grades took turns presenting at the next two assemblies. Here are some pictures from their presentations.
At the third assembly the Lower School watched a short movie that shows us that we should be sensitive to other people's feelings. Being mean to someone is never a good idea!
Grade 2 worked with Mr. Tony to prepare a skit for the fourth assembly. The students showed everyone that compassion is an important part of being a good friend to your classmates. We should be sensitive by paying attention to each other's feelings, and then we should be compassionate by taking care of each other when someone else needs our help.
At the fifth and final assembly of the year, Ms. Ruth's ELL students showed off their improved English abilities with a song. Amy did an excellent job representing Grade 2. Great work, Amy!
The fifth assembly also included an energetic cheer showing Vitality from Grade 1, a skit about vitality from Grade 4, and a song from Grade 3 about different kinds of intelligence. Ms. Alejandra ended the assembly by acknowledging all student birthdays through the end of the school year. Look at all of those birthdays! It was a lot of fun getting together with the entire Lower School throughout the school year!
