Harding's Happenings

5H Rocks!

Theme 2 Project

The Holiday Traditions project was assigned before the November break. Each student was able to research the background history of traditions they do with their family. They are to pick one family tradition to present on, students are encouraged to be as creative with this presentation as they like. I am really looking forward to hearing about their traditions, the best part is seeing how excited they are to share something they do with family. They will start presenting Theme 2 on December 17th. I will have 5 students present each day.

Student Led Conferences

Student-led conferences are just around the corner, so we have just begun the steps necessary to prepare for this big task. The students will have 15 minutes to share about their academic successes and struggles so far this year. Each student will be creating a portfolio in Google Sites, this is the best way for them to be able to add to it throughout the year to show their growth as we move along this school year. Reflection is key in this process and it is ongoing.

With that being said, I only have 5 minutes to share with you after your child is finished. Please be sure to address any questions or concerns as they come up, don't wait for conferences. In order to be respectful of everyones time I must stay true to the schedule for each conference. So please never hesitate to email or call about any questions. The big picture for this year is to get your child self-sufficient and an advocate for themselves when they enter middle school. And of course have tons of fun while learning along the way!

Field Trip

The students recently brought home permission slips and details about our first field trip on December 9th. Each student is asked to get the slip signed and returned along with $8.00 in cash to help with the remaining cost of the trip. Please be sure to check in with your child if you have not seen the permission form yet.
