JU-A Weekly Note

Dear JU-A Families,

Students in JU-A have been busy completing several projects this week: a mystery story based on The Chronicles of Harris Burdick, a character sketch of a merchant trading on the Silk Routes during the Tang Dynasty, a design for our Silk Routes game, and final math projects. Many students have also taken interest in the silk worms that have been living in JU-A for the past few weeks.  Today, they were excited to see the caterpillars begin spinning cocoons!  

Next week we will spend much of our time playing our Silk Routes Live Trading Game. We celebrated the completion of our preparations by enjoying a Chinese food feast with the entire Junior Unit.  This weekend, ask your children about the characters they have created and how they intend to play the game.  The children are excited, and we are excited to see how the last two weeks of research and city design contribute to the fun!  

Today TPS celebrated Rainbow Day and Field Day.  Students shared projects they did in their family circles with other groups and spent the rest of the morning playing and competing together.  This weekend ask your children about any new friends they made in other classes through family circles and what their favorite part of today’s celebration was.

On Monday, JU students will participate in Move-Up Day.  Fourth graders will welcome third graders into our space to help them learn about a typical day in JU.  Fifth graders will visit sixth grade to learn what they can expect when they transition upstairs next year.  Next week, students will also be receiving their summer assignments.

We are looking forward to one more week together next week before summer, but this will be our last Friday note.  It has been a pleasure working with your children and your family this year.  We hope you have a wonderful summer!

Warmly,

Tim and Julia

Dear JU-A Families,

Students forged through ERBs this week! When they were not taking tests, they enjoyed the opportunity to meet again in their city groups and move further along in their mystery stories. In the city groups, students continued learning about their city, got their hands messy as they built and decorated a city center, and spent more time designing their character. For their mystery stories, students worked on their drafts with a focus on using descriptive adjectives, verbs, and nouns to set a mysterious mood.

For our final science lesson, we learned more about the history of Philadelphia’s watersheds. Students were shocked to learn that before the 19th century, industrial waste and sewage were dumped into our rivers’ tributaries. We tested a new water sample from Wissahickon Creek and compared it with last week’s sample from the Schuylkill River. You can ask your child to share with you what differences existed between the two samples and what this says about our water supply. We ended the unit by watching and responding to a spoken word poem called “Dear Future Generations.” Many students found it powerful and motivating. Thanks to JU-A student, Peri, for finding and sharing it! You can watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRLJscAlk1M

Lastly, here are few important dates to look forward to:

  • May 30, June 1 - Launch of Silk Road Simulation
  • June 1 - Chinese Feast
  • June 2 - Rainbow Day/Field Day (morning)
  • June 5 through June 7 - Silk Road Simulation at TPS
  • June 8 - Silk Road Simulation at The Schuylkill Center
  • June 9 - Graduation (11:30 a.m. dismissal)

Wishing you a good Memorial Day weekend,

Julia and Tim

JU-A Weekly Note

Dear JU-A Families,

We had an exciting week of learning in JU-A! Students spent a good deal of time preparing to participate in our live simulation of Silk Road trading, which will take place during the last weeks of school.  This week, students broke into groups to become experts about one city on the Silk Route.  Today we began building symbols of those cities that we will use during the game.  This weekend, ask your children what city they studied and to describe the culture of that city.  You may also ask them if they have any ideas about the character they are creating to play in the game.  

Students began work on their final writing assignment for the year: writing a mystery story to accompany an illustration from Chris Van Allsburg’s The Chronicles of Harris Burdick.  Before writing, we reviewed the structure of a story and discussed what makes the mystery genre special.  Students were excited for this extended creative writing project.  Many were especially drawn to the idea of creating false clues to add suspense to their writing.  This weekend, ask your child about the mystery they have written and what clues they are offering readers to solve it.  

In science we moved from thinking about deforestation to examining Philadelphia’s water supply.  Students thought about how deforestation affects the quality of the water supply and made predictions about how clean the water in the Schuylkill River would be.  This weekend ask your child if the quality of the water in the Schuylkill lived up to expectations or if there were surprises.

Next week we will spend much of Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday taking ERB tests.  Please be sure that children have plenty of sleep and good breakfasts before coming to school, and do not schedule anything for these times. Students may bring mints to have during test, but please do not send candy.  

Have a great weekend!

Tim and Julia

JU-A Weekly Note

Dear JU-A families,

Happy Friday. We apologize for the lack of a Friday note last week; Julia was away at a conference, and Tim had to leave early due to an injury.

With the all-JU Silk Road simulation approaching, we have started a closer study of this historic trade route. After watching a video on the Silk Road’s trajectory and legacy, the students collaboratively read a nonfiction text about it and took detailed notes on one of the stops along the trade route. Today students had a lot of fun playing a Silk Road online game. Many students requested to play it over the weekend; here is the address: http://web.stanford.edu/group/spice/SilkRoad/SilkRoad.html

In fourth grade math, students are continuing to explore fractions using a variety of manipulative tools, including egg cartons. In fifth grade math, we began constructing kites for our quadrilateral study.

At The Schuylkill Center on Thursday we wrapped up our study of deforestation. We read aloud Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax, which focuses on deforestation and its effects on communities and natural spaces. Students drew parallels between our world and the world of the story. We played a game that simulated an unsustainable, linear system of production and had the students re-design the game to make it sustainable and cyclical. Lastly, students wrote their own sequel to the The Lorax, imagining how to create a world where commercial production does not deplete natural resources.

We want to remind you that ERB tests are around the corner. The ERB (a standardized test from the Educational Records Bureau) is being given to 4th and 5th graders from Monday, May 22, to Wednesday, May 24.  We ask that you not schedule appointments during those days.  More information about the testing days will be forthcoming, but we wanted to give you a heads-up not to plan other events or appointments then.

Wishing you a great weekend,

Julia & Tim

JU-A Weekly Note

Dear JU-A Families,

It was a fantastic, full week of school in JU-A!  As the week went on, temperatures went up.  Many students even remarked that they felt hot at The Schuylkill Center on Thursday.  Please be sure to send your children to school with refillable water bottles on Thursdays so they can stay hydrated when we are outside.

This week students finished their experiments with fast plants after working with them for much of the winter.  This weekend, ask your children if they were surprised by the results: Did the variable they worked with produce more seeds than the control plant?

Students also continued working on their Chinese culture research presentations and their research writing about Dynastic China.  This weekend, ask your children to share some interesting facts they have learned during the research process.  Is there any part of the process they would change the next time they do research?

On Friday, Kindergarten’s Brian Jordan joined us for Encuentro.  Brian’s band, City Love, led a dynamic and thought-provoking song workshop about identity that had all of us up on our feet singing, dancing, and thinking about our roles in this community.  Ask your child how they felt about the workshop.  

We have spent a few of our morning meetings this week discussing cures for “Spring Fever.” Many students have brought in fidget devices to help them focus.  We discussed as a class how effective these can be as tools when used correctly, but also how distracting they can become when used incorrectly.  If you’ve noticed fidgets at home, too, please continue that conversation.

Have a great weekend!

Tim and Julia

JU-A Weekly Note

Dear JU-A Families,

Happy Earth Day! We continued exploring themes of environmental protection today at The Schuylkill Center through a study of bluebirds, a species native to North America that is facing population decline. Students participated in a fun simulation in which they played the roles of sparrows, starlings, and bluebirds competing for resources; next, we looked for evidence of bluebirds--and efforts to protect them--at The Schuylkill Center. 

We have noticed that many students have been arriving to The Schuylkill Center with some anxiety about getting muddy or encountering bugs. We will continue to support kids to see the beauty in the time we spend outside and to push them to approach this natural space with an attitude of curiosity rather than fear. We would appreciate it if you had a conversation with your child this week about their time at The Schuylkill Center and encourage them to embrace this outdoor time.

Now that students are more than halfway through the year, we are pushing them to build more independence, specifically with managing long-term deadlines. This week we discussed the importance of writing interim deadlines, such as for a science lab report that is due next Friday (4/28). You can support your child with this at home by asking them to share with you how they plan to break up their assignments over multiple days.

Have a great weekend!

Best,

Julia and Tim

JU-A Weekly Note

Dear JU-A Families,

Spirits were high this week with the beautiful weather surrounding us, and we especially enjoyed being outside yesterday at The Schuylkill Center!

With April being National Poetry Month, we enjoyed exploring poems this week. Some students have brought in poems from home to read aloud to the class, and today we had students write a poem at morning meeting. Our conversations about our read-aloud book, Brown Girl Dreaming, have focused on its themes of discrimination, as well as the ways that Jacqueline Woodson paints pictures in our minds with her poetic words.

Our environmental science focus this spring is on the ways humans affect the environment.  Students did an online survey to determine their ecological footprint (http://www.earthday.org/take-action/footprint-calculator/). They found that they generally underestimated how many earths it would take if everyone on the planet had their lifestyle, and many were surprised that their ecological footprint was larger than that of the average U.S. citizen. We also discussed actions that they themselves could take to reduce their footprint. At The Schuylkill Center we visited Penn’s Native Acres, a 10-acre area of land set aside for restoration. After having taken the ecological footprint quiz, the students were quick to point out that while restoration is important, we must also strive for sustainability in other areas of life.

We want to remind you that spring is the beginning of tick season, so it is important that students come to school on Thursdays wearing clothes that can protect them against ticks. Students need to wear long pants and long-sleeved, light colored shirts on Schuylkill Center days.

Here are some other questions you can ask your child about their week:

  • In what stage of the life cycle is your fast plant? Why is it no longer producing flowers?
  • What revisions did you make to your research paper this week?
  • What result did you get on the ecological footprint quiz? What was your reaction, and what do you want to do about it?

Have a great weekend,

Julia and Tim

JU-A Weekly Note

Dear JU-A Families,

It was so nice to see many of you for conferences before break and to welcome students back on Monday!  

This week we returned to much of the work we began earlier in the spring.  On Tuesday, students turned to the revision stage of their research writing about China.  Writers considered how to organize paragraphs around topics and subtopics using strong topic sentences.

At Community Meeting on Tuesday, we discussed crushes and relationships, starting with a story for each group to prompt discussion.  The boys’ group read a chapter from Benjamin Alire Saenz’s young adult book Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, and the girls’ group read the short story “Secret Samantha” by Tim Federle from Flying Lessons and Other Stories.  Both groups then looked at the spectrum of attraction (from heterosexual or straight to lesbian/gay, with bisexual filling the entire space in between).  Be sure to ask your child about the story that was read and what was interesting to them about the meeting.

Unfortunately, rain kept us away from The Schuylkill Center this week.  We stayed at TPS and did a simulation to help students understand sustainable use of resources. We followed up by watching a video titled “The Story of Stuff,” which explained and raised questions about consumer culture.  

We ended the week with a trip to the PMA.  Students looked at art that showed the movement of Chinese ideas from China to the west via the Silk Route.  You may ask your children if they noticed any new, interesting artworks on this trip.

Have a great weekend!

Tim and Julia

JU-A Weekly Note

Dear JU-A Families,

It was a short and productive week in JU-A. We kicked off the week by attending an inspiring musical put on by JU-C students and students from the HMS school in West Philadelphia.

Our fast plants have finally blossomed, and this week we cross-pollinated them. The plants' seed pods have started to swell and the students are eager to find out how their chosen variable has affected their flowers’ seed production.

Most of this week was spent preparing for student-led conferences. We are proud of the hard work students have put into reflecting on their progress and finding a way to present this information to you. 

Here are some questions you can ask your child about their week:

  • What changes do you expect your fast plant to undergo over the break?
  • What was the theme of the HMS/JU-C performance The Same Sky? What message did the plot and songs convey?
  • What is one word that describes how you would like your student-led conference to feel?

We’re looking forward to joining you for your child's student-led conference.

All best and have a wonderful break,

Julia & Tim

JU-A Weekly Note

Dear JU-A Families,

We are busy preparing for conferences in JU-A!  The students are excited to share their successes from the winter and their goals for the spring with you.  We are looking forward to welcoming you into the classroom again.  

As we looked back on our past work, we continued to move forward.  Students continued to use our topographical and climate maps of China to hypothesize how geography and climate can affect culture in different parts of China.  They will work in small groups to research their hypotheses after spring break.

Jill Garland visited JU-A this week to help students organize their ongoing research writing projects.  Jill helped students understand the cyclic nature of the writing process, pointing out that, especially for research writing, they may move back and forth through the prewriting, drafting, and revising stages several times before publishing.

Here are some questions to discuss with your children over the weekend:

  • How do you think your variable has affected your fast plants' growth?
  • What are you enjoying about the Brown Girl Dreaming read aloud?
  • How do you feel about your upcoming student-led conference?

Have a great weekend!

All the best,

Tim and Julia

JU-A Weekly Note

Dear JU-A Families,

This was a week of growth in many different senses of the word. Leaves are beginning to emerge from our fast plants, and students are reflecting on the way their variables have affected their plants’ development. Students’ research papers are progressing as they find answers to their open and closed questions. Additionally, students have been reflecting on their own growth as they set goals in preparation for student-led conferences.

We continued studying China’s ethnic groups this week; students worked in small groups to hypothesize the ways that China’s geography may affect the culture of the ethnic groups living in various regions of China. 

Two highlights of the week were a visit from the Peter Tang musical ensemble on Tuesday and our visit to the highly interactive 7th grade "Seeds of Change" exhibit.

Here are some questions that you can ask your child about this weekend:

  • What is a SMART goal? Why is it important for a goal to be SMART?
  • What did you learn about Chinese music and instruments this week? What makes the Chinese musical scale distinctive?
  • What questions do you have about China’s ethnic diversity?
  • What is a surprising fact that you have discovered about your research topic so far?
  • Name a “seed of change” you learned about from the 7th graders. How has this factor influenced human life and history?

Please remember to sign up for a student-led conference, which will take place March 23 & 24. To sign up for a conference with Julia, visit http://doodle.com/poll/8iieb7t77e889wqn.

JU-A Weekly Note

Dear JU-A Families,

We had an exciting week in JU-A!  After a few weeks of learning about plant growth and thinking about the scientific method, we planted our fast plants and began our experiments.  Students are now eager to see how their plants grow in the next few weeks.  This weekend, ask about what variable your child decided to change and how that has affected growth so far.

Students continued researching a topic of choice for a project on Dynastic China.  We introduced the children to the idea of having a questioning stance when reading nonfiction.  To practice at home, try reading a newspaper or magazine article together this weekend.  As you read, ask your child, “What surprises you about this article?”  

During Community Meeting this week we looked at how the media can affect how we see ourselves.  Students saw how advertisers have created images of the stereotypical boy and girl to whom they sell their goods.  Ask your child about how segmented marketing can influence what toys you buy for your child.  

We also began a new read-aloud. The class is listening to Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson. This week, in addition to enjoying the story, students discussed characteristics of memoir and free verse as we read.  

On Tuesday afternoon students enjoyed seeing their peers from JU and 3rd grade perform in a music recital.  Ask your child what their favorite act was.

JU-A Weekly Note

Dear JU-A families,

It was a short but busy week! Students began finding online resources for their Dynastic China research papers. We were lucky to have Matt M. join us for another session; this time, he worked with the students on using a rubric to evaluate the credibility of the sources they find.

The students enjoyed attending two eighth grade Shakespeare performance this week: Julius Caesar and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Be sure to ask your child about highlights from these plays!

In community meeting this week we explored the complexity of gender by breaking it down in gender expression, gender identity, and assigned sex. We watched a video created by Jazz Jennings, a transgender teenage girl who recently pushed the book I Am Jazz. We also learned about non-binary gender identities and watched this video, which illustrates the ways society boxes people into two genders.

We sent your child home today with their experiment proposal for our study of fast plants. Each child will be growing their own set of fast plants and will choose one variable to manipulate (space, soil, temperature, light, nutrients, or water) in order to increase their plant’s seed production. This week we learned about the scientific method and discussed why it’s important to only change one variable when doing a controlled experiment. 

Links for spring conference sign-up will go out via email early next week. Spring conferences are student led. 

Sincerely,

Julia & Tim

JU-A Weekly Note

Dear JU-A Families,

It was wonderful to see so many members of our community perform during the talent show!  If you haven’t already heard all about the show, ask your children what their favorite acts were.  Did they learn anything interesting about the TPS student body by watching their peers perform?

Students also shared their learning this week.  They processed their reading of The Magical Monkey by completing a project that asked them to think about plot, theme, and characterizations in the book.  They shared their learning in songs, new book jackets, speeches, newspaper articles, comic books, and sequels.  On Wednesday students had the opportunity to share their work in a gallery-style presentation.  

In science, students are beginning to think about designing their fast plant experiments.  This week students worked to become “experts” on one of the needs of a plant and began asking questions and thinking about variables that can affect plant growth.  You may ask your children what their expert group studied and what they learned about their variable.

Matt Murray returned this week to teach students useful tips for searching for information on Google and research databases. They will use this practical knowledge to continue researching topics about life in dynastic China. 

In our bodies curriculum, we shifted from thinking about bodily changes that happen during puberty to thinking about changes that happen in emotions and the brain during adolescence.  We constructed lists of positive ways to manage feelings.  Ask your children what positive ways they know to regulate their emotions.

We are all looking forward to next week’s Shakespeare Festival.  In the meantime, enjoy the long weekend.

Sincerely,

Tim & Julia

JU-A Weekly Note

Dear JUA families,

Although the snow day did not produce much snow, it sounded as if students enjoyed their surprise day off!

Motivation was high this week as students started working on independent projects to share what they have learned from The Magical Monkey King. We provided rubrics for each project option so that the kids have a clear idea of what is expected. You can ask your child to share with you which project option they chose. Because of the snow day, the deadline for these projects has been pushed to Wednesday.

Students have been doing hands-on work in math class, as well. The fourth graders are working in pairs to design engaging board games themed around multiplication. The fifth graders are applying their knowledge of fractions to the construction of a circular pie chart that shows how they spend their time on a typical day.

This week, we moved to the next stage in the research process: generating research questions. We discussed the difference between open and closed questions, and why both are important for research.

During community meeting this week we discussed other changes (besides egg and sperm production and related processes) that occur during puberty.  What was surprising to students was how many of the changes affect both males and females, including changes with hair, hygiene, acne, mood swings. We also discussed that while mood swings are common, extreme anxiety or depression (feelings of worthlessness or that the world would be better without you) are beyond that, and that if a student feels that way they should reach out to an adult.  You can ask your child if they have any questions about what was covered and if there’s anything in particular they are worried about.

A reminder: Next week, students have off on Friday for a teacher in-service day. Additionally, we are all off on Monday, February 20, for President’s Day.

Enjoy your weekend!

Julia & Tim

JU-A Weekly Notes

Dear JU-A Families,

It was wonderful to see so many of you for our learning celebration on Thursday!  JU-A students were happy to welcome you into our classroom to share their learning with you.  In addition to the learning celebration we had two other special events this week:

On Tuesday, TPS welcomed Dr. Omékongo Dibinga to speak to the middle schoolers and JU students.  Omékongo shared his inspirational life story and challenged us to be upstanders in our daily lives.  

After the learning celebration on Thursday, Matt Murray returned to work with students on becoming mindful and safe online media users.  This week students learned how to create secure passwords.

JU students have been generating many questions as part of the bodies curriculum.  This week, we decided to give students more space and time to ask questions.  We’ll return to introducing new content next week.

Here are some questions you can ask at home this weekend:

  •     What does it mean to be an upstander?  
  •     How can you be an upstander at school?
  •     What did it feel like to present your work at the learning celebration?

Have a great weekend!

Tim & Julia

JU-A Weekly Note

Our first five-day school week of 2017 was productive and fun. Many students returned on Monday feeling a mix of strong feelings about the demonstrations and marches that took place over the weekend. On Monday we tapped into their interest in social action by reading case studies about child activism. Many JU-A students chose to march with signs around Markward Playground on Thursday to share their opinions about our political climate. We look forward to continuing to nurture their interest in social action and working with them to build their toolkit of strategies. 

We began our new word study groups this week. Students seemed to enjoy being in groups with students from other JU classes. The new homework routine is that students are assigned word study homework on Monday that is due on Friday.

For our bodies lesson this week, we reviewed some terms we use to describe our bodies, such as sex and anatomy. We also learned about the diversity of our bodies as we discussed how sex is a spectrum that includes male, intersex, and female bodies. The concept of intersex was new to many students. 

The week ended on a motivational note. Yves and other faculty/staff who attended this year's People of Color Conference organized a workshop with students about the concept of rising up and being an upstander. You can ask your child to share with you what they think it means to rise up and strategies for being an upstander, even when it feels challenging.

Here are some other questions you can ask your child this weekend:

  • When doing research, what is the difference between a big question and a little question? Why is it important to ask big questions?
  • Which stage of the plant life cycle did you focus on studying with your group? 
  • What progress did the class make with the China map and timeline this week?
  • What literature circle roles have you enjoyed serving as you’ve read The Magical Monkey King?

We sent your children home today with a writing assignment that they completed earlier this week. The prompt asked them to reflect on something they are an expert at. This has been part of the lead-up to our research writing project. We hope you enjoy talking with them about their writing and about their budding research topics.

Enjoy your weekend!

Julia and Tim

JU-A Weekly Note

Dear JU-A Families,

This four-day week went by quickly. Students continued their work with The Magical Monkey King through their new literature circle roles. They began to explore research topics for their research papers about Dynastic China. Topics were diverse, ranging from the mythology of dragons to military architecture to Empress Dowager Cixi!

Matt Murray, our technology integration specialist, led a workshop this week with the kids about their digital lives, in particular how they can make wise choices online and think deeply about their digital footprint. 

Our science work this week focused on the plant life cycle. Students began to make a display of the seven stages of a plant life cycle, which will serve as a guide as they grow their own Fast Plants in the classroom!

We were happy to see students make connections between what they learned about plant reproduction and what they are learning about human reproduction in their Bodies curriculum lessons. Our past two Bodies curriculum lessons have focused on male and female reproductive anatomy, including the journey of egg and sperm through one's own body and the way a baby develops from both cells. Understandably, this has raised questions for many students around how sperm and egg meet. Because we are not covering sexual intercourse in this curriculum, we have told students that these are great questions which they can discuss more with their families. Your child may be coming home this week eager to discuss these questions with you.

Here are some other questions you can ask your child about the week:

  • What makes Fast Plants unique?
  • What topics did you explore for your research paper?
  • What would you like your digital footprint to be like?
  • What makes a strong goal?
  • How does Monkey King connect to Where the Mountain Meets the Moon?

Our Junior Unit Lunar New Year Open House is at 9 a.m. on Thursday, February 2.  There will be a musical performance in the Garage followed by a chance to see some classroom work. We look forward to seeing you then!

Best,

Julia and Tim

JU-A Weekly Note

Dear JU-A Families,

It was a short but full week in JU-A!  Most notably, we began two new units of study:  we are now reading The Magical Monkey King as a class, and we started a science study of fast plants.  We also continued our work toward developing a definition of research writing and began reading a nonfiction book called Life in Ancient China.  We will use this book to learn more about ancient China and to model effective research writing.  

In community meeting, we (boys and girls, in separate classrooms) studied the female reproductive system.  In addition to answering questions at the time, all classes have set up a way for ongoing questions and answers.  (Next week we move on to the male reproductive system.)  A question you might ask your child:  You learned a lot this week about female biology -- was there anything new to you?  Anything you still want to know more about?  

Here are some other curricular questions you may want to ask your children over the weekend:

  • What does a plant need to grow?
  • How did you demonstrate a growth mindset in school this week?
  • What does it mean to paraphrase a text?  
  • What steps do you take to paraphrase a text?

On Friday, January 27, our class will participate in a Poetry Day event presented by the 6th grade. The sixth graders will recite poems they have written. As a part of this special event they will serve hot chocolate, which will be offered to our class. The hot chocolate is peanut/tree nut free and is the approved brand by the school nurse Sara. 

From TPSA: Please join us for the Junior Unit 4th & 5th Grade Potluck (adults only) on Wednesday, January 18, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the Garage.  RSVP HERE:  https://tpschoolblog.squarespace.com/potluck-rsvp (or go to the Events page of the Parent Portal).

We hope you enjoy your long weekend!

All best,

Tim & Julia
