• MAP TO MIDDLE SCHOOL

    The fifth grade team works closely together and continuously throughout the year, sharing strategies, ideas, and resources to plan for rewarding fifth grade activities and units that additionally serve to prepare the students for the next chapter ahead of Middle School. Here you will find all the ways the 5th grade team works together to prepare our students for middle school.

     

    SEPTEMBER

     Throughout the month of September, we introduce technology skills and apps that will become a part of the students' daily lives in middle school.  The one-to-one iPad initiative will continue this year at J.F.K. and next year, in middle school.  Our goal is to seamlessly integrate technology into the students' routines while teaching them to see it as a tool to enhance their school experience. Additionally, we encourage our students to use their iPads as a way to enhance the home/school connection by providing them with access to materials, notes, and assignments outside of the classroom.  We begin by working with Notability, Classkick, Google Drive and Google Classroom.
