Thank you to all the parents who shared with grade 5 during International Day. It was a very busy, yet fun day.
We were able to learn about Guy Fawkes Day, The Sights and Art of Paris, make gazpacho soup and try traditional Ukranian painting called Petrikivka.
Lunch was delicious and amazing!
After lunch, we learned about the history of Saint Maur and made a poster with our thoughts on what makes Saint Maur special. Then we danced off the day long day!!
During the week I took note of the kind of negative comments students made about themselves and their abilities. We talked about how to change those thoughts. Each student chose the negative thought they tell themselves the most and made a ‘positive thought’ card to keep on their desks.
~We hope you had a great birthday~
In 5H we learned about character traits and we chose 3 character traits for each person in the class. In the end everyone got the words that others said describes them, and made a World Cloud on ABCya with them! ~Bijoux~
We have already celebrated two birthdays since school has begun. Happy Birthday Aron and Bianca!
Last week 5H discussed what kind of classroom jobs were needed to help keep our classroom running smoothly and clean. We talked about how you get jobs in the “real world.” Some ideas were; “You take a test.” “You do what you like.” “You ask for the job.” There was more discussion about how some jobs require specific skills or training, how you needed to apply for a job and have an interview. On Friday the students read through the 5H Help Wanted Classified Ads. They all chose two jobs to apply for. The application included reasons they though they were the right person for the job including what skills they had, their strengths and weaknesses.
After much consideration, interviews and job expectation discussion we now have 13 new employed students in 5H.
