I have struggled to find a way to communicate my learning intentions for your children this year without making them too specific and having to uploaded too often.
I have looked at the primary report card and like many things about it, most of all I like that their goals for inquiry learning. As I read these goals I find that they describe my goals for your children in our classroom. They are broad and general but they are ultimately what I hope for your children as they move through this year of learning. In our class we talk about learning to learn and these goals describe what that process looks like. I would love your comments and feedback on how you feel about these goals as a way to communicate your child's progress.
These are our learning intentions for the year.
