Please take the time to remind yourself about Dengue fever - anyone with a high fever, headache and no cough/cold symptoms should go to the Doctor to rule out Dengue fever. Here in Northern Thailand we see a rise in cases at this time of the year.

The grade 7 students explored the challenges of communicating how to draw a picture with shapes using a grid. Students worked with a partner and took turns being the "programmer" and the "computer." The programmer instructed the student acting as the computer to draw a predetermined picture on a grid. This lesson demonstrated the need to be exact when programming a real computer to draw an image and was an introduction to the following lessons where the students will be using code to program images on a computer.

In spite of some of the COVID regulations in place at school, CMIS students have still been busy finding their own service projects to work on out in the community. This summer, a handful of students went to the FAE Elephant Hospital in Lampang for two days to help the hospital staff take care of the elephants. Click on the following link to the Service Learning website in order to read more about the experience of one student and watch the video they created about their time with the elephants: https://sites.google.com/…/cmis-service-l…/student-spotlight

This semester, the grade 2’s have been exploring the exciting world of plants and insects. Much to our excitement we introduced a new insect into our classroom, and quickly discovered that they are called mealworms! Like other living things, we learned that in order for them to survive, they need air, water, food, and a home. So we quickly got to work, creating a home for them in a cup of oats with a small carrot. Some of us even gave our insects names.
Weekly, we have been able to observe the mealworms and discuss their structures, behaviors, as well as any other changes we noticed. We recorded all their changes on our calendars, as well as noted when they shed/molt their skin! As they grew bigger they became more active and grew longer. After a couple of weeks, we were surprised to find that a few of the mealworms were curled up in a ball and had started turning white in color. We discussed how these larvae will be going through changes in its life cycle. As they continued to change, we learned that they are now called a pupa. Again, we discussed the structures and behavior of our new pupas. We are eagerly awaiting the day that our pupa’s go through their next life cycle stage and change into a beetle!
Each day we look through our magnifying glasses and wait to see how these changes will take place. Oh what fun insects are!

In Visual Arts, the Grade 8 students have been broadening their knowledge of traditional architecture by investigating traditional houses from all over the world.
They presented their findings of how and why houses are built the way they are in front of their peers. We now know much more about the Hanok houses in Korea, the Honai homes in Indonesia, and the Adobe homes in Mexico, to name a few.
For the practical part of the assignment, they are designing their own Canal house, inspired by the houses with typical gables in Amsterdam.
They have been extremely creative in planning who is going to live in the house they designed and in some cases combining traditional gables from the Netherlands with some Asian influences.
They will use the pieces in a creative way to make their gable into a relief and will start transferring their sketches to wooden boards next week.

I race a lot in Chiang Mai and on Sunday, I ran a 12-hour ultra race at Huay Thueng Thao called Until the Sundown. It rained most of the day, but I managed to run 90km and won 3rd Overall Female.
On Thursdays, secondary school students can run with me and join the after school cross country team!

PE had a great start to the Football/Dance unit. During the next couple of weeks, students will explore these physical activities while also learning how to maintain Good Sportsmanship behavior.
Here, students are showing off their dance moves (while maintaining distancing). There was break-dancing, ballet, moon-walking and so much more from this awesome class!
