TEDx Youth Jingshan 2019
On Saturday, February 23, TEDx Youth Jingshan hosted their inaugural event featuring students and adults throughout the community. Participants put forth countless hours to prepare for their TEDx talks, meeting with mentors, revising / editing, enhancing, and developing amazing presentation skills. This hard work was certainly apparent at the event. Congratulations to 5B’s very own, Emma, who did a talk on how imagination can lead us to problem solve issues present in the world and to 5C’s Shian who did a talk on wanting to be invisible

Congratulations to all the amazing speakers of the evening!

Last, but certainly not least, congratulations to the fearless leader who organized, narrated, and put together the entire event. Without her, this simply wouldn’t have run. Awesome job, Ms. Killoran!

This week we are finishing up a bunch of units. Students have taken their reading debate topic and have written in up as a 5-paragraph persuasive essay. This will be revised and published this week. In reading, student are reviewing how to summarize articles, analyze how one part relates to the whole article, looking at who the author is to determine if there is a bias, and synthesizing information across texts. In math, we are starting to divide with fractions!! Ask your child how to draw a picture to solve how to share 1/4 of a liter of milk among 3 people.
