Greetings 5C Community,
A heartfelt thank you to everyone, especially our class parents, who organized and provided food for the UN Day lunch! It is always such a treat to taste dishes from other countries. It is a source of pride for students when they can share their favourite foods with their friends.
This week, students analyzed several example texts and completed drafts for their own discussion essays. Next week, students will peer review, revise and edit their drafts to include complex sentences, modality (opinions) and grammar.
Students have continued to develop their understanding of multiplication and have been using estimation strategies to solve real-world problems such as how many students attend UNIS and how long would you have to wait in line at a concert.
Students created several flowcharts to represent thier understanding of the governing structures at home, in our class and at UNIS. Afterwards, Jane McGee, the UNIS Head of School, spoke with the class to explain how things really work. Students were most surprised to learn that Ms. MCGee has a boss, the Board of Directors, which includes six parents. As one student put it, “She gets bossed around by the parents.” Next week, students will prepare for their end of unit assessment, where they will be creating an effective governance system for an organization of their choice.
