We explored Singapore, a country at the tip of the Malay Peninsula that is surrounded by 60 islets! A Peninsula is a piece of land nearly surrounded by water or sticking out into the water. Fun fact: the capital of Singapore is also called Singapore. We had fun learning some Malay. Check out some words below! Did you know that everyone in Singapore lives in cities and that buying a car can be as costly as buying a house in other parts of the world? The government makes cars extremely expensive in order to lesson traffic.
Popular sports include swimming, waterskiing, soccer (called football) and martial arts. Mornings are often started off with toast and coconut jelly, so we had toast and some “football” cake.

Miss Sherry brought money from around the world! The kids had so much fun learning about the different names of money and how the currency changes when you try to exchange it. Many kids learned an important lesson about exchanging money from one type of currency to another. What a fun way to get their stamp for their passports!
DON’T FORGET that 80 stamps, or 80 books from around the world (about a different country or written by an author from a different country), will get you a chance to win an awesome learning adventure in BOISE up to a family of four! Keep on reading and collect those stamp… and BRAG TAGS!
