Parent involvement is a pillar we strongly uphold at ACS. With the aim of celebrating learning, our students, divided into groups of five, gave several presentations to an audience of parents thus showing the different learning techniques and perspectives.
Grade 5B parents listened attentively to a group of students presenting their project on “Diseases and Disorders” of the Nervous and Cardiovascular Systems.
Two other groups presented on different reading strategies, particularly “inferencing”, which the students are in process of mastering in the classroom
Other groups presented on problem solving and explained the strategies students need to use in order to solve problems correctly.
The presentations concluded with a contest between the students and their parents similar to the show, “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?”
My students scored much higher than their parents! But, let’s keep this between us!
