Mathematics - "The Singapore Tax System"

Use the income tax calculator found on IRAS website
http://www.iras.gov.sg/irasHome/uploadedFiles/Quick_Links/Copy%20of%20Tax_Cal_Final_170211_IRAS.xls

Consider how the tax system affects the following 3 groups of Singaporeans
(1) Lower-Income
Mr Daglish is uneducated. He earns $900 a month. He has to pay 20% to cpf (take away 20% of his salary). He has 2 kids. His wife is not working due to health issues. They live in a 1 room flat.
(2) Middle-Income
Mr Tan is an executive. He earns $5000 a month. His wife takes care of the family. Mr Tan has to give 20% CPF. He has 2 kids. He takes care of elderly parents. He drives a car. He has a maid to take care of the elderly parent. They live in a 5 room flat.
(Median household income in Singapore is $5000)
(3) Higher-Income
Mr Ng works in the bank. He earns $8000 and his wife earns $5000. They only have 1 kid. They stay in a condominium.

English - "Reading Aloud"

Where: 1 Elijah classroom
Task: Read a passage aloud and record their reading.
Learning: Self-Directed Learning. In the video, you see how a boy retreats to a corner of the school and records his own voice. I observe that the boy was replaying his recording and tries again until he is satisfied with his reading. This is one of the proud moment for me as a teacher to see our students engaged in learning. They feel empowered to learn.
