Week of January 22nd

Ni Hao!

This week we boarded the plane to China and have started to learn explore Beijing. We boarded the plane with our passports, suitcases, and tickets in hand! We took off from Burlington on a once-in-a-lifetime direct flight to Beijing! We started with a trip to the Forbidden City to see where the emperors used to live! We compared the Imperial Place to the White House and the National Mall. The Forbidden City has a moat, 90 palaces, and 8,707 rooms! We also talked about how much older China is compared to the USA.

Has your child been abuzz with talk of a number scroll? Many students have been using every spare moment to work on their number scrolls! They are budding mathematicians using their place value knowledge to build numbers in the hundreds and even thousands! I can’t wait to see how far each student goes!
