Fun under the sun

For the past three weeks, our toddlers have explored so much about the world. First week of May, our lovely Qingdao turned pink with all those beautiful cherry blossoms. The weather also started to get warmer and we didn’t hesitate to walk around the campus with a basket in hand and improvise a cherry blossom collection. […]

Building friendship

Here we go again! Few weeks have passed already since the last post, but here is more about the little ones of our school. Children continue mastering skills with activities that they already know. They are also showing curiosity for the new materials presented. Activities such as transferring water with a pipette, sponges or small pitchers are excellent to develop eye-hand coordination, precision of their grasping, first notions of math such as quantity, and concentration. These types of activities are self-corrected which means the child can see his/her mistakes and try to improve. These water […]

Simple Machines简易机械

After enjoying the movie of Ferdinand, we became book & movie critics. We began by doing a compare and contrast with a Venn diagram to identify the similarities and differences. Then we each shared our opinion about which one we preferred and why. 看完了《公牛历险记》的电影之后,我们都变成了电影和小说的评论家。我们先是用维恩图解对小说和电影的相似之处和不同之处,进行对比和比较。然后再一起讨论,我们更喜欢小说还是电影,以及为什么喜欢。 We unscrambled our third line of inquiry: Inventions and innovations that […]

A QAIS jazz session with musician and composer Michael Zsoldos与音乐作曲家Michael Zsoldos的QAIS爵士盛会

At QAIS we talk about language a lot. As a multi-lingual community, we are all constantly working to communicate, deepen understanding and make connections with each other. It came to my attention this week that our students have another significant “language” connection to each other and to the world; the language of music. This should […]
