Ms. Anderman's final science projects

We spent the last 3 weeks of our science unit creating models and slideshows that help students explain the answer to the question "How does the Earth, moon & sun interact to create observable cycles?".  Students created models and slideshows to help explain their understanding of the reason we see phases of the moon, observe eclipses, and have seasons.  Here is the rubric I used to assess the final projects and slideshows.  Scores will be reported on Powerschool after break.  This group next moves to Ms. Michael to for their last trimester of science.

5th Grade Math and Progress Reports

Greetings Parents and Guardians.  As most of you know by now, we are in the midst of an exciting but big change in the way we assess our students.  It has been a learning curve for all involved.  Today your student received their progress report.  If you have a 5th grader, you many notice some blanks where you might expect to see a score based on our explanation included with the report.  It seems as though the 5th grade standards were not linked to the progress report and therefore did not show up.  You can find all of your student's scores on Powerschool under semester 1.  You simply need to check the assignment "Semester 1 Final Score'.  There you will find all of the scores assessed during semester 1.  I apologize for the confusion and appreciate your flexibility.
