All Aboard to Fifth Grade

Comment 0

I can’t believe it’s been two months already since we have welcomed school year 2018-2019. Time flies so fast! It feels like we have accomplished so much already in that span of time.

The kids have been busy working, learning and adapting to the routine of fifth grade. Since this is also a transition period from Elementary to Middle School, they are being trained to be socially responsible and to always show empathy and care to one another. Circle Time is also being done with the Guidance Counselor to help the kids cope with the challenges in fifth grade.

For the past seven weeks, kids have been spending a lot of time doing hands on activities and experiments in Science. They have been observing, exploring and note taking the changes in matter- whether it is a physical or a chemical change.

Math continues to be a challenging and fun class as they get to do Mental Sums and Speed Tests for 2 minutes, with 20 to 30 questions; solve problem sums and exit questions and do active and engaged activities. Power School (PS)  has also been introduced to the kids. They get to see their numerical grade (in real time) for both Maths and Science and how are their grades were generated in the Power School. Parents can also access their child’s grade in the Power School by logging in to their accounts.

Below are some photos from the past two months. I can’t wait to see more of their activities as the rest of the year goes. :)
