Dear parents,

Unit of Inquiry – Sharing the Planet

This week students had learning experiences in the unit Sharing the Planet, including a presentation from the Shaw family.  The classes met their two ponies and inquired into the concepts of change, responsibility, and connection.

Students have also been preparing and planning for next week’s final assessment.  They will choose a living thing,  conduct research, and then create a poster that shows their knowledge of the habitat, physical characteristics, life cycle, and other interesting facts.  We have plenty of sources in class for research, but please encourage your child to bring any additional resources they may have at home on Monday.

Student-led Conferences

Thank you for confirming your child’s conference time with the teacher.  We look forward to hearing the students share their work and reflect on learning accomplishments and goals.  We are very proud of all hard work the children have done in preparation for the conference and all the progress they have made this year!
