May 7 – 11

This week we introduced our last unit of the year on “transitions,” and we began our exploration with a visit to a Kindergarten classroom to help students realize some of the transitions they have already made as learners.

Next, we brainstormed other types of transitions and created a list that included physical, social and emotional changes. And yes, puberty was on the list! The following presentation slides give a brief overview of topics covered during the unit. Please attend the coffee morning to find out more. This information session takes place at 8:30 tomorrow in the library.

Now that Exhibition is over – although some groups are continuing their actions – we are back to a more normal schedule of math and literacy. In math this week, students learned about the different types of measurement through hands-on activities worked mathematically by reflecting on themselves as mathematician, solved a multi step, multi solution problem and set goals. In literacy, students learned to provide descriptive details into their “recount” writing. We used our own experiences and our Kindergarten experience to structure our writing.

 

Reminders:
Standardized MAP assessment on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Families can help students by ensuring that their children come to school rested with full stomachs.
