PYP at Scott Elementary
2nd Grading Period (2019)
The International Baccalaureate Mission Statement
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
To this end, the organization works with schools, governments, and international organizations to develop challenging programs of international education and rigorous assessment.
The programs encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate, and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

Action in the Classroom
Kindergarten, Planner 1: Who We Are (continued)
Kindergarten had community helpers visit our school and tell us important things they do to help the community! Check them out!
First Grade, Planner 2: Sharing the Planet
Second Grade, Planner 2: Where We are in Place and Time
The second grade students learned about the phases of the moon, and then they were able to recreate the phases using vanilla wafers to help demonstrate their knowledge. We covered vocabulary such as waxing (growing larger) and waning (growing smaller). This is just one of the several natural cycles we covered in this planner.
Third Grade, Planner 2: How We Express Ourselves
Students here are discussing how energy changes matter.
We have been discussing perspective in many different ways, including what it takes to appropriately respond to different types of literature. Here students are talking about their response to an article titled “Rats play hide and seek and like it.”
Communication and Thinking Skills
Here students are using their communication and thinking skills to evaluate each others kernel essays over “an unusual test.” The conversation happening has been most impressive.
Fourth Grade, Planner 2: How We Express Ourselves
Fifth Grade, Planner 2: How We Organize Ourselves
Students worked through a candy lab to determine the physical properties of each candy. They then predicted whether they would dissolve, refract light, or melt!
