Grade 4: Camping Chronicles

Grade 4 went camping with Ecoventure during the first week of March and it was an absolute riot! The children enjoyed sandboarding, rock climbing, archery, fire and shelter building, animal tracking and so much more.

Going to camp really helped our students build stronger relationships with each other as well as with their teachers.

Our students slept in tents for 2 nights and was such troopers when it came to taking their 1-minute showers and keeping up with their jam-packed itineraries.

The best part for both teachers and students was when we all gathered around the campfire to roast marshmallows and share riddles and jokes.


Teacher Spotlight

Last week I had the job to interview a teacher at SISD. I interviewed Mr. Rodriguez. Mr. Rodriguez is our rock star, 5th grade English teacher. He is from Miami, Florida in America. When I first saw him I thought he was a teacher who just liked to work non-stop but when I got to know him I quickly realized how fun he was; meaning he teaches in a really fun way and that’s why I picked Mr. Rodriguez.

Mr. Rodriguez- Grade 5

Meet the best and nicest English teacher in all of Dubai! Ms. Billups is an amazing 4th grade teacher. She is very intelligent and child-friendly. She is super silly and loves to joke around and she makes learning extremely exciting. One thing that I will forever remember about Ms. Billups is when she came to my “Back to School” pool party with my French teacher Mr. Gentilleau.

Classroom Cooks

Grade 4 has been learning about procedures. We read several books explaining how to do something step-by-step, we learned how to write our own procedural text and best of all, we practiced following a procedure. That procedure was a recipe. That’s right! We turned our classroom into a kitchen and made Spaghetti!! Yummy
