Ex-day Kids are Excited for the Musical!
During the Ex-Day Soundscapes Class, students learned about the importance of tech for a musical, including using a light board and sound cues.
What Does Integrated Learning Look Like?
In 6th Grade, it looks a whole lot like a Population Density Country Comparison chart.
6th Graders do an extensive country research project each spring, as a way for students to personalize and focus their thematic studies of world cultures. This year, this project was integrated with their math lessons on rates and ratios. In pairs, students chose 4 countries (the countries of their projects and 2 more), independently found resources online to compare them, and created to-scale drawings of the four countries. Finally they made a graph of the population densities, experiencing concretely that the size of a country doesn’t necessarily match its population.
Building Bridges Update
Last weekend, PMFS’s Building Bridges group hosted a party to celebrate spring and learn more about Historic Fair Hill. This Quaker burial ground now serves as a hub for community services in a neighborhood where the median income is $14,000/year and only 15% of school children read at grade level. The more than $700 contributed by our party guests will allow HFH to fund a bilingual parent classroom aide for more than 6 weeks, reducing the student:adult ratio from 30:1 to 15:1. Keep an eye out for more opportunities to get involved. http://historicfairhill.com/
