Here’s the day.

La science 7A – We continued into the review document. As a class, we completed Partie D and spent some time on the vocabulary section. The vocab section, Partie A has been assigned for homework for the next class, Monday, January 20. We completed questions 1, 3 and 5 on pages 66 and 67 in the work book.

Le français 7E – We practiced our questions for prefered sports and used our top ten lists in conversation with a partner. We moved onto reason why we prefer particular sports and activities.

Les maths 7D – We started into the fractions unit. We started with fractions with common denominators and worked on simplifying the response. The students were given worksheets and need to complete pages A, B and C for tomorrow’s class. The google classroom has been updated with today’s and tomorrow’s homework as per request.

Les sciences humaines 7D – We reviewed the geography of Egypt and Mesopotamia. We then moved onto comparing the governing structure, the social norms and religions of the two regions. The students completed a checklist that applied information given by presentation and the class notes from the photo analyses.

Les maths 7C – We corrected our work for adding fractions of common denominators. We moved onto the second stage of adding fractions – adding fractions with different denominators. The students received instruction on the required structure for their work and were assigned page E for homework tonight. The google classroom has been updated with today’s and tomorrow’s homework as per request.

Voilà, notre journée!

La science 7D – We really focused on the strategies for separating homogeneous and heterogeneous mixtures. We used some video-clips for visual resources and focused on the vocabulary in the work book.

Le français 7E – We practiced our two new questions about the sport we like to play. We shared our list for the top ten sports, our guesses, and compared them to a researched list. We then used our understanding of the phrasing to create our top ten list of sports.

Les maths 7C – We started into our unit on adding subtracting fractions. We started with proper fractions and simplifying fractions using the largest common multiple.

Les sciences humaines 7A – The students used a majority of the class to work on their first draft. I took in what was completed to read through and to add suggestions. We ended the class with a review game.

Les maths 7D – We completed our divisibility test. Once everyone has it complete they will be handed back.

Le jeudi 9 janvier

A few items for your consideration due to the change to the week’s schedule.

Les maths 7C & 7D – There is one final review activity I want to complete prior to our test on divisibility. Since classes have been cancelled yesterday and today, I will move the test to Monday. I will post the review activity here on the blog and on my google site for those students absent tomorrow for their studies over the weekend. Perhaps some may want to get a jump start today.I have also uploaded 2 reach-back homework assignments on my google site.

Le mercredi 8 janvier

My apologies, I got distracted yesterday and failed to update the blog. Here’s the story from yesterday and some items for the students today.

Le français 7E – We started into a new unit on sports and activities. I identified and discussed the objectives of the unit using the government outcomes to give the students an idea of what we’ve completed what our goals are for the second unit. The class was strictly conversational using two presentations. I have uploaded the presentations for the students to review.

Les maths 7C & 7D – We continued using the practice quiz making numbers based on divisibility criteria. We started with a presentation for practice and then the students tried it on their own. The students have two handouts to work on to prepare for their quiz on Friday. I’ve uploaded all the pages in case they are needed. The quiz will remain on Friday.

Les sciences humaines 7D – We continued our resource analysis. The students expanded into some more photos of artifacts and art pieces to further their introduction into Mesopotamia.

Les sciences humaines 7A – We shared our analysis of the second sample intro paragraph. Using the two samples and our observations, the students started their own intro. We moved into the first paragraph of the essay assignment as well. Once we have completed the first draft, we will work on some peer and self editing.


Le lundi 6 janvier

Bienvenue an 2020! First school day of 2020 done. Here’s what we got up to today.

Les sciences humaines 7D – We reviewed the geography of the Mesopotamia region. Students had started labelling and colouring the map prior to the break. I will be looking for its completion tomorrow (homework!!!). We analysed some photos of artifacts and locations found in the region from its ancient civilisations to gain a better understanding of possible roles and activities that would have been practiced there. We will continue to a second batch of photos tomorrow. 

Les sciences humaines 7A – We started into the essay assignment. The students received two sample introduction paragraphs to analyse and critique. We worked on one together and identified the strengths and weaknesses and means of improving the writing. The students completed an individual analysis of a second sample intro that we will discuss tomorrow. No due date has been assigned for the essay but we will be using the next few classes to complete the writing assignment.

Les maths 7C & 7D – We reviewed our divisibility rules. We completed a little review activity and completed the first page of a practice quiz. The students received a few extra handouts today for studying and practice. We scheduled a quiz on the divisibility rules on Friday, January 10. The google classroom homework has been uploaded.
