This week & next, we will host the final Middle School (MS) transition visit in 5th grade. This year Delana Brinkman, Dean, Theresa Weber, MS School Counselor & current MS Students came over to each 5th grade class and co-facilitated an engaging, interactive lesson with me. We covered 6 different topics that are relevant to MS.
Each student received a special orange SLP Middle School folder with their materials in it. They were instructed to bring this home and share out some things they learned from our knowledgeable Middle Schoolers!
If you would like more information on how to support your student through this change, visit the Middle School Transition page.
The final all-school theme for this school year is College & Career Readiness (CCR). These lessons are meant to expose students to all the options and choices that are waiting for them after high school. The material covered is pretty basic, but interactive.
The biggest curriculum change was in 4th grade lessons. I found a College & Career Escape Room on the Teachers pay Teacher website. This activity was created with Middle and High School levels in mind - however, I was able to edit the material to fit our needs for this lesson. This was a fun & engaging way to get students continuing their journey in learning of new careers, but also introduces them to some light college material including mascots! I am happy to report ALL groups finished! Their treasure for accomplishing their tasks was 2 things ~
1. A certificate proving they escaped the room
2. A college pencil (purchased online from Party City)
