Here’s the news from Stonepark’s 7D! The school has started a Battery Blitz! The school’s Green Team has organised a used battery collection for the students and their families looking to recycle their old, used batteries. They’ve also put a challenge out to the homerooms to see which class can collect the most (in weight, not number). Let’s win another one 7D! Secondly, the Charlottetown Rural students have organised a second after school session for tutoring on Tuesdays. I have a few of my students who attend and have seen a complete change in their work and comprehension. This crew from the Rural are awesome and do a fantastic job. It’s an enthusiastic recommendation.

Les sciences humaines 7D – We reviewed Greek mythology and worked on a comprehension activity using the legend of Echo and Narcissus.

Les sciences 7D – The students started into section 3.4 on habitat in the work book. I have uploaded a handout prepared by Mme Scott for the vocabulary and information necessary for this particular section of chapter 3.

Les maths 7C & 7D – The students reviewed writing equations and expressions from word problems and verifying their final answers. We scheduled our test on Tuesday, February 25. We will continue to review tomorrow and Monday to prepare for the test. The google classroom has been updated and I will be looking for the duotangs tomorrow!

Le mercredi 19 février

Here’s our Wednesday!

Le français 7E – We worked on a second writing assignment using our research from the previous class. The students researched a favourite athlete using questions we’ve practiced in class and are now organising a description and a biography of that athlete.

Les maths 7D & 7C – The students focused mainly on developing equations using information within a particular scenario. The students developed an equation, isolated the variable and practiced verifying their answer.

Les sciences humaines 7A – We reviewed our mythology notes and started into some of the social norms within Ancient Athens. We are using a text for this section of the unit, L’Antiquité, as our source of information.

Les sciences humaines 7D – We reviewed and finalised our notes on mythology. We analysed the information to identify absent subject matter from the god and goddess’ patronage and developed our own role within the mythology.

Le mardi 18 février

Here’s our Tuesday!

Les sciences humaines 7D – We took a little more time to research our gods and goddesses. We then shared our notes and completed any sections that needed information.

Les sciences humaines 7A – We wrote our geography quiz today and they will be handed back tomorrow. We reviewed Greek mythology and started a comprehension activity using the legend of Echo and Narcissist.

Les maths 7D & 7C – We reviewed our practice of writing an expression using a particular scenario. We practiced isolating variables in equations and completed a small formative assessment to measure our isolating skills. We worked on questions 7 and 13 on pages 249 and 250 from the textbook. Students who did not complete the work in class and the hockey academy crew need to complete this for homework. Also, the google classroom has been updated with today’s reach-back homework.

I forgot to include in yesterday’s post the news from our homeroom. We were all excited to welcome Mme Scott to our class. Mme Scott is a student teacher from the UPEI Education Program and she will be with us for the next 11 weeks. Here’s our day! Voilà notre journée !

La science 7A – We reviewed ecology and taxonomy and worked on some sample quiz questions. We completed the section on population and assigned a little weekend assignment on taxonomy. Each student has a animal assigned to them and an assignment page to be filled in for Tuesday, February 18. If the page was forgotten at school, I will post one in the science folder here on the blog.

Le français 7E – We completed our class evaluations and assessed our understanding on the given answers. The students used the majority of the class researching one of their favourite athletes. The students were given a list of questions, based around the questions we’ve been using since September as a guide for their research.

Les maths 7C & 7D – The students wrote an algebraic quiz on expressions and completed some work on equations. I also took in their homework duotangs.

Les sciences humaines 7D – We wrote a geography quiz for the Ancient Greek unit and spent the rest of the class researching particular gods and goddesses of Ancient Greek mythology.

Here’s our day!

Les sciences 7D – Our class was cut short due to a presentation with our Premier, the Honourable Dennis King. We did however get a few minutes to review ecology and taxonomy. We discussed a taxonomy assignment for the weekend where the students will research the taxonomy of a particular animal. Students have tonight to choose an animal for the research assignment.

Le français 7E – We completed some class evaluations and reviewed our weekly message. The students then completed a reading comprehension activity that is modelled according to our next assignment.

Les maths 7C & 7D – We reviewed our understanding of expressions and completed a second formative assessment to ensure our understanding. We then practiced isolating the variable in algebraic equations. We have an expressions quiz tomorrow and the google classroom has been updated with tonight’s homework. Remember to hand in your duotangs tomorrow!!

Les sciences humaines 7A – We rescheduled our geography quiz for Tuesday, February 18. We reviewed geography and went over our notes for the Greek gods and goddesses. We then completed question on page 6 of the student booklet pertaining to the preceding notes.

Le mercredi 12 février

A few items to keep in mind due to the cancellation this morning.

Les maths 7C & 7D – We have a quiz on expressions planned for tomorrow, Thursday February 13. That will be moved to Friday. I need to return a formative assessment to 7C and discuss its results. The google classroom homework has been updated with today’s homework.

Les sciences humaines 7D – Our geography quiz will remain on Friday, February 14. I have uploaded the presentation used in class to the sciences humaines folder for your reference and your study sessions.

Les sciences humaines 7A – Our geography quiz will be moved to Tuesday, February 18 due to the change in the cycle (there is no SS class on Friday now).

 

Le mardi 11 février

Good day, good day! Here’s our day.

Les maths 7D & 7C – We spent much of the class time on the numerical coefficient within expressions. The 7C crew wrote the formative assessment to measure their understanding of expressions and the roles of the constant, coefficient and the variable. We have our quiz on expressions on Thursday. We moved into equations and practiced with a few examples on how to isolate the variable. The google classroom has been updated with the homework.

Les sciences humaines 7A – I returned the essays and gave the students some further explanation of the rubric. We completed some review for geography and scheduled a little geography quiz for Friday, February 14. We started into our research for the Greek gods and goddesses and will continue the next class.

La science 7A – We completed the questions on ecological taxonomy and moved into population. I’m hoping to organise a little quiz on the chapter thus far within the next week or so. We completed questions 8 and 6 together on page 87 and question 4 on page 91.

Le français 7E – The students worked on their mini paragraph assignment and handed in a good copy. We worked on some reading comprehension together as a class and discussed the next assignment, a reading comprehension, to be completed individually using an athlete’s biography.
