6th Grade Promotion Committee Meeting
6th Grade Promotion 2016
We are performing Student-Led Conferences from Mrs. Blevins' room on Monday, March 28th, and Tuesday, March 29th. If you prefer one of the two days, please contact me in regards to letting me know when it's a good time to meet. I will be sending home a half sheet of paper (a week prior) informing all parents when their appointment will be.
What is Student-Led Conferencing?
Essentially, student-led conferencing is an ongoing process whereby the student assumes an active role in planning, implementing and conducting the parent conference. It is my belief that involving children in conferences is necessary if we expect them to be self-reflective and to assume ownership over their own learning. The goals of student-led conferences are simple: to increase self-confidence, to develop student leadership, and to put the ownership for learning where it belongs—with the student!
Talent Show was a success! We had so much fun! Thanks for showing your support!
Our Week at a Glance
Students have been also building stamina this week from independent reading at the end of the school day. Ask your child how many minutes we are up to now! With our stamina goal in mind, we are also continuing to pursue the 40 book challenge. Please ask your child how many books they read so far this year. i have been conferring one-on-one with them to make sure they are reading "Just Right Books" that pertain to their interests so they can reach their 40 book goal by the end of the year.
Reading Logs: Students received a February log. Please remind your child to read 20 minutes every day outside of school. Reading with your son or daughter is a great way to spend time to learn about their reading interests! Reading logs can be found on my website if your child misplaces theirs. There is a direct link below as well. February Reading Logs are due Tuesday, March 1st.
