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.
Who We Are – Transitions
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 strategies of solving multiplication problems and discovered patterns in geometry by finding areas, lengths, and angles to better understand the world around us. In literacy, students learned to provide descriptive details into their “recount” writing.
Next week, students will take the standardized MAP assessment on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Families can help students by ensuring that their children come to school rested with full stomachs.
Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow morning, Friday, May 11 at 8:30 a.m., for our Transitions Coffee Morning in the Community Room, B7.
