While your kids are busy doing a scavenger hunt around the house, why not treat yourself with a nice cup of dalgona coffee? I have tried this recipe many times since March, and it’s really delicious! You only need 3 ingredients: equal parts black coffee, sugar, and hot water. Put all ingredients in a bowl and whisk until it turns foamy and light brown. I usually use 2 tablespoons of each, and that gives me two servings. I use a lot of ice and milk so it’s not too sweet. If you’re not a coffee fan, you can try matcha dalgona, cocoa dalgona, and milk tea dalgona.

That’s it for our blog update. Please take care of yourself as well, dear parents. We know how stressful everything is right now, so let us know how we can better support you and your kids.

Have a safe and relaxing weekend, and we’ll see you all on Monday!

Lots of love,

Ms. Alano and Ms. Akashi

Dear 1B Parents and Students,

Dear 1B parents,

Thank you for your constant support at home for eLearning! πŸ™‚

It has been very nice to see the students trying their best to study at home.

We understand that the current situation has been very difficult for everyone. What’s most important is that everyone is staying healthy (physically and emotionally) and safe. If your children need a break from the computer, please encourage them to move around and to take a break! This is an experience that we have all never encountered before. We’re sure that we are all going through different emotions. But we are all in this together! We hope things get better soon.

Most importantly, please stay safe! πŸ™‚

Here are two resources we would like to share with you. Feel free to use them as you see fit:

  1. How To Talk to Your Kids About Coronavirus
This is how the website looks like.

2. EPIC – An invitation has been sent out to your email. There are free books available online. You can read books based on your child’s AR level. You can access this on your computer or download it as an app.

This is how the website looks like.

Dear 1B Students,

Thank you for working so hard everyday! We are so proud of you πŸ™‚

How is everyone doing?

Ms. Alano and I am so glad that we got the chance to see everyone on the screen this week.  

Please don’t forget to keep playing, dancing, singing, making, drawing, writing, problem-solving, and learning at home. Make sure you wash your hands!

And don’t forget one thing: Even if Ms. Alano and I cannot see you everyday, we are always thinking about you! School is not the same without you but we hope you are enjoying our eLearning lessons!

We love and miss you, boys and girls! πŸ™‚ 

Love,

Ms. Akashi and Ms. Alano
