G5 Celebration of Learning
(save the date)
UNIS Center for the Arts
Monday, June 11 at 9:00am
Please join us in celebrating the end of your child’s Primary Years Program.
Greetings 5A Community,
This week students took the MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) Test over three days, covering reading, math and language. We will receive the results in the next week or two. While this test is only one measure of student academic achievement, it will provide a glimpse into your child’s academic growth.
As we continue our units on “identity” and “transitions”, students identified many types of transitions, from moving to maturity. They researched topics such as puberty and hygiene, and thought about how they are changing, physically, socially and emotionally.
In literacy, students practiced adding description into their writing. You can see their reflections and sample paragraphs on their blogs. They also discussed literary devices, such as metaphors and symbolism, during our read-aloud of The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. In math, students continued to practice solving problems involving different types of measurement.
Finally, please put the G5 Celebration of Learning on your calendar for June 11. We will use this event as a way for students to showcase their changing identities through artifacts and presentations, as well as a way to say goodbye and provide closure on a wonderful year.
In continued partnership,
