Summer Programs 2020

 GRADE INQUIRY PROJECT 

小学生探究​プロジェクト

Ages 6-12

CONCEPT

This summer, the student will use engineering design to pose questions, seek answers and develop solutions.  Naturally inquiry-based learning forces students to apply both scientific concepts and mathematical skills  to help solve real world problems.  Additionally, Elementary school students will brush up their academic skills in reading, writing and speech. 
こども探究プロジェクトとは自ら湧き出るアイデアや創造性を使い、疑問を構築し、多様な問題解決方法を学習します。3つのプロジェクトを通じて探究しながら、算数のスキル、理科の概念を応用しながら、社会に存在するリアルな課題に取り組みます。また、コミュニケーションスキルそして人と人とが関わりながら生きていくために欠かせないソーシャルスキルを使いながら、英語での読み書き、スピーチの学力を磨きます。​

Inquiry Projects 

WEEK B AUG 3- AUG 7

People have used the science of buoyancy to invent a variety of things. During Week B, the student will use the concept of buoyancy to invent and build a flotation device out of everyday materials. They will explore the following concepts: 

*  Why do things float and sink? 

* How do you record buoyancy?  

* Can heavy objects float? 

探究テーマ:浮力

人々は浮力の科学を利用してさまざまなものを発明しています。 Week Bでは、浮力の概念を利用して、日常の材料から浮揚装置を発明および構築します。子供は、次の概念を探究します:

*物が浮いたり沈んだりするのはなぜか?

*浮力をどのように記録するか?

*重い物が浮くぶのか?

SOLD OUT!

SOLD OUT!

WEEK C AUG 17- AUG 21

During week D, students will use static electricity to create their own inventions and games ! We will inquire on the following concepts:   
* How does electricity behave?
* How do you produce static electricity
* How can you use static electricity to create new ideas

探究テーマ:静電気

Week Dでは、生徒は静電気を利用して独自の発明やゲームを作ります。
子供は、次の概念を探究します:

*電気はどのように移動するのか?

*静電気はどのようにして発生させるか?

*静電気を利用して新しいアイデアを作るにはどうするか?

SOLD OUT!

WEEK D AUG 24- AUG 28 

SOLD OUT!

During Week D, we are going to be architects and construct a future city using a variety of 3-D shapes. We will inquire on the following concepts:   
* What 3-D shapes are used in our community?
* How are 3-D shapes combined to create effects? 
* Significance of geometric forms in architectural design 

探究テーマ:3次元のデザイン

Week Dの週は、建築家として、さまざまな3Dの形状を利用して未来都市を建設します。
次の概念を探究します:

*コミュニティで使用されている3D形状とは何か?
* 3Dの形状を組み合わせるとどのような効果的が生まれるか?
*建築設計における幾何学的形態の重要性とは何か?

CLASS INFORMATION
 
Classroom Language
The primary classroom language at SIS will be English, however, we understand that there will be a difference in language abilities and experiences. Therefore for students who are beginning their journey as English learners, we will work specifically on their curiosity and motivation for the new language. At SIS we believe this is the essential stage to becoming a life long learners of a new language. Please be aware that our program does not only focus on grammar and conventions of language but all three domains of learning- these are cognitive (skills and knowledge), affective (emotional stability) and psychomotor (the act of doing and reflection).

Reading

Students will practice reading comprehension skills necessary in an academic setting. The reading skills we will focus specifically are:

  • Recognizing and using more vocabulary

  • Applying skimming skills to comprehend to main ideas and specific details

  • Identify topic/ main ideas & Supporting details

  • Use note taking strategies when reading 

  • Apply critical thinking skills (e.g. inferring) to the reading process with guidance 

  • Reading fast and fluently

For students in need of EAL support, our EAL staff will have 'pull out' sessions during literacy/ language arts sessions and work with them on their individualized programs. 

Creative Writing

Students are challenged to complete at least one well-developed, polished piece throughout the two weeks    Through writer's workshop students will gain skills in writing, editing, analysis, and effective communication. Don't worry if you don't have prior experiences as a writer, our workshop is there to help you gain confidence and skills on becoming better writers! For students in need of EAL support, our EAL staff will have 'pull out' u sessions during literacy/ language arts sessions and work with them on their individualized programs.

Programming 

 Your child will build and program simple robotic systems using LEGO® Education WeDo, use simple coding skills, engineering concepts, components of the robotic system and connect it to block programming to expand their project. Students assess different outputs of the system by varying the inputs and variables. They learn to analyze and present these results to an audience. This program reinforces team-building skills, boosts confidence and encourages your child to experiment with new ideas.

Table Topics  

TableTopics is a time where we engage in conversations about our thoughts, opinions, desires, and dreams. We will sit around the table and take turns discussing random topics written on pieces of paper placed in a box in the middle of the table. The purpose is to be able to spontaneously generate your thinking and speaking. 

Independent Goals

We all have specific goals that we want to attain academically and personally. This could be simply "being able to say the times tables faster", or "being able to play the play the scales on the keyboard more fluently".  With the help of teachers, the students will work towards attaining their goals. Learning to set goals plays an important role as your child starts to gain independence and feel as though she has some control over her own life. When she begins figuring out what she wants to achieve and accomplish, it can set the stage for her to be more self-motivated and not depend as much on external rewards and praise.

クラスで使う言語
Grade School Summerのクラスの中で使用される言語は「英語」です。しかしながら、「英語」のスキルのバックグラウンドが異なる環境から参加される子供たちがいます。そのため、「英語」に触れることがはじめての子供たちには、新しく学ぶ言語に対して、まずはモチベーションと興味を引き出し、働きかけます。Grade School Summerのプログラムは、文法やコンベンションなどの英語のスキルにフォーカスを置かない代わりに、言語の習得に必要な3つの要素を取り入れています。ひとつ目は、学習した知識とスキルの認知学習、学習内容に影響を与える社会性と感情性の調和、そして3つ目に子供が自分のとった行動や言動を振り返る力、すなわち精神運動スキルです
