Le mardi 12 novembre

Bonjour, voilà notre journée !

La science 7D – We worked on a new review question page for temperature, acidity and basicity. The students are to work on these questions at home to prepare for a quiz we’ve scheduled for Wednesday, November 20. The review question pages have been added to the science folder. The students have a week to work on the page as our next class is not until Tuesday, November 19. We worked on question 6 on page 38 of our workbooks and I demonstrated a lab we will be doing on Thursday, November 21.

Les maths 7C & 7D – We worked on converting decimals to percentages, and fractions, to decimals to percentages. The worksheet that was used can be found in the mathématiques folder. There was no google classroom homework assigned for this week due to the two day school week.

Le français 7E – We added another question to our repertoire of questions for ordering food off a menu. We completed a scavenger activity using a sample menu in the text.

Les sciences humaines 7D – We completed our work with the Egyptian mythology research. We shared our answers and completed common notes. We analysed the information to find similarities between the gods and goddesses we’ve researched. I was hoping to get into the hierarchy, but that will be tomorrow. Quizzes will be handed back tomorrow.


Le jeudi 7 novembre

Good day and bonjour. We had a wonderful Remembrance Day Ceremony today and my 7D crew seemed to really appreciate the assembly and showed the utmost respect. We scheduled our (7D) pizza party for Monday, November 18. Parent teacher is scheduled for this evening, 5pm to 8pm and tomorrow, 8h30am to noon. Here’s our day.

La science 7D – Due to the assembly, our class was shortened but we did manage to go over our answers for questions 1 and 2 on page 37 in our workbooks.

Les maths 7C & 7D – We really got into ordering values, both in increasing and decreasing order. I’ve uploaded the questions and some worksheets for students to work on at home, in case they believe they have no homework, they can practice some math at home.

Les sciences humaines 7A – We wrote our Egyptian geography quiz and worked on the Ancient Egyptian hierarchy. I’ve uploaded the presentation that was used for our notes.

Le français 7E – We completed the final dialogue presentations and practiced a previous question on preferred drinks. We started into a textbook activity using a menu from a smoothie restaurant to answer some questions.

Le mercredi 6 novembre

Hé et bonjour. Parent Teacher is happening tomorrow evening (5pm to 8pm) and Friday (8h30 to noon). I’ve invited the students to attend the sessions as well, the more the merrier. Voilà notre journée !

Les maths 7D & 7C – We completed all denominators expected for Grade 7 according to the course outcomes for converting fractions. We started organising the values least to greatest or greatest to least by applying our strategies for finding a shared format.

Les sciences humaines 7A – We reviewed in preparation for tomorrow’s quiz. We then developed conclusions based on our research into Egyptian mythology.

Le français 7E – We presented our little play in groups of 3. The students had some fun with the acting out a restaurant scene, with props and everything. Two groups still have to present and we will complete that tomorrow.

Le mardi 5 novembre

The school shared some ice cream with our 6+ jar crew from the fundraiser campaign – I think they had some fun there. Here’s our day.

Les sciences humaines 7D – We wrote our geography quiz today, the marks should get into SAS tomorrow. We finished our stations on the Egyptian gods and goddesses.

La science 7D – We reviewed our lessons on mass and volume using our review question sheet. We continued into the acidity and basicity sections completing questions 1 and 2 on page 37.

Les maths 7C & 7D – We completed some review on converting fractions to decimals with denominators of 50, 25, 20, 10, 5 and 4. We worked on fractions with denominators of 8, 9 and 99. I’m hoping to get into percentages tomorrow. The google classroom has been updated with tonight’s homework.

Le lundi 4 novembre

Ice cream party tomorrow for all those who sold 6 or more recipes in a jar! Here’s our day.

Les maths 7C & 7D – We reviewed converting fractions to decimal numbers and vice versa. We started into more ‘complex’ fractions and worked on a strategy for converting them to decimal numbers.

Les sciences 7D – We reviewed a bit of our QUIZ tomorrow on Egyptian geography. Students are to study pages 1 and 2 our their booklets. We worked in stations to add to our Egyptian mythology notes.

Les sciences humaines 7A – We reviewed for our QUIZ on Thursday, November 7. We also revisited our info for the Egyptian gods and goddesses – I’ve added my Powerpoint to the sciences humaines folders for those who were absent. We completed an intro activity to the societal roles in Ancient Egypt.

Le français 7E – We completed some evaluation work and tried to get into the dialogue assignment, but we’ll save that for the next class.

Le vendredi premier novembre

Do not forget, recipes in a jar can be picked up tomorrow, 9am to 12 noon!! I also received a few more photo orders today – they will be handed out on Monday.

Les maths 7D & 7C – We spent some time converting some simple fractions into decimal numbers. We’re working with fractions with denominators of tens, hundreds and thousands in the hopes of using them as exemplars for more complex denominators.

Les sciences humaines 7A & 7D – We worked on our research for Egyptian mythology. The 7A crew had the opportunity to visit stations to compare their research with an answer key. The 7D crew completed their research time and will visit the stations next class. The 7D’s have their Egyptian geography quiz on Tuesday, and the 7A crew will be tested on Thursday.

Le jeudi 31 octobre

Joyeux Hallowe’en. One general announcement in regards to the Recipes in a Jar fundraiser. The jars are scheduled to arrive tòmorrow. Stonepark has set up a pick time for everyone Saturday, 9am to 12 noon here at the school. The order forms were returned to the students today and they are responsible to contact those who have ordered through them and inform them of the jar pick up schedule.

Les maths 7C & 7D – We wrote our second unit test on adding and subtracting positive and negative integers.

Les sciences humaines 7D – We scheduled a quiz on the Egyptian geography for Tuesday, November 5. We reviewed some more today and we will continue the next few classes. They have their student notebook to use for studying, if not, I have a copy included in my sciences humaines folder. We spent a large chunk of the class researching Egyptian mythology that we will continue tomorrow.

La science 7D – We reviewed mass and volume. Some students are admitting that they are not reviewing their notes and material at home, and some of yesterday’s homework was not completed by many. All the students have a review guide to use at home and if it is forgotten, it is available in my science folder. We worked on acidity and basicity by organising the differences within a graphic organiser.

Le français 7E – We had a little conversation with our class evaluations and dug into our writing assignment. The students had the opportunity to put the final touches on their paragraph. We started into the dialogue assignment, but the bell rang before we got really into it.
