In June, students will showcase their learning with student led conferences and portfolio presentations. This sharing of their learning and year-long effort is a celebration of the deep and meaningful learning they have been engaged in.
This month has been a bit different. During this time you are invited to see and hear about specific projects/units that have been powerful learning moments in the year. Through performances, exhibits, and guided classroom tours students share about powerful learning moments in the year.
In kindergarten, students have learned about space and the solar system. They built their own space station that they are eager to talk about with their parents, buddies, and other students. In third grade students will read excerpts of their written work at Author's Tea and, in fourth grade during their History Alive! presentation, students created characters to demonstrate their understanding of California history. Our sixth graders have dived into Shakespeare and their culminating event is a series of scenes they will be performing to the community.
These culminating events help us gain a better understanding of what how our students are learning. They are also fun as we gather together to enjoy their excitement in their work!
