I sincerely hope everyone had a relaxing and refreshing Spring Break. It is the last break for this year and now it is time to head to the end. First up are the very important Student Led Conferences. If you have not signed up yet please do so soon. There are two conferences at the same time but the times are filling up.
I have prepared my class for these in the following manner. First we took a look at the five areas in the Learning 21 standards of ISB. For each of these we asked what it should look like in a grade 5 classroom. Then I had each student explain how they show this in their learning, provide examples of their growth this year and finally provide goals for continued growth. After this we did a similar process for the Habits of a Learner that are the third quarter report card. Students used these to work through completing their
own report card with my help and assistance. You will get a copy of this report card during the conferences. Students have also organized their portfolios into these areas as support for what they will discuss with you during the conference. With all of this in place, I believe they are ready for a discussion with you. The support of your student's learning is very important and I want to thank-you in advance for this.
There will be no current events, homework or Monday Folders this week as there is only two days of school before the conferences.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me and I will gladly set up a time to meet with you.
