Normally we have a full six weeks of inter disciplinary class time to prepare but, when juggling the constraints of a public school system with the PYP I am leArning that six weeks is actually brought down to a matter of days. No stress! When in Rome….etc.
The kids were amazing as they pulled it together for those final few days. The art was creative, the technology impressive, the action inspirational and the writing edited. Through collaboration, delegation and negotiation our groups were guided to the finish line by their incredibly committed mentors, the parents and teachers who volunteered their time.
Our 5th graders took to the stage like the pros that they have become and led a 25 minute multi media presentation in front of an awe struck audience! I was bursting with pride!
