The Kindergarten students have been learning about the Indonesian rain forest and the animals that live there. The students know that the Sumatra rain forests are disappearing faster than in any other part of Indonesia. With the loss of the rain forest some animals are also endangered as they are losing their habitat. The Sumatran tiger, the Sumatran rhino, the tapir, the orangutan and the Sumatran elephant are all endangered and at risk of becoming extinct.

The kindergarten students made charts indicating which animals were endangered in Indonesia.

Students in Grade 1 / 2 have been learning the numbers from 0-25 in Bahasa. The children participated in a variety of learning activities in order to learn the numbers: number hunt, language program, and match pictures and words on the board. I am truly impressed with the fact that almost all the students know how to say the numbers in Bahasa.

Grade 3 / 4 students have been learning how to tell time and to track daily routines in Bahasa. It was fun when students shared their daily activities because each student had a different time schedule and different activities! Max said he has never had breakfast, Caitlyn shared that she only watches TV on weekends! Eamon shared that he can wake up at 7:00am because his house is very near to the school. The one thing that all students had in common is that they all do homework.
