Le vendredi 14 février

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.

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.


Le lundi 10 février

Good day bonjour ! Here’s our news.

Les sciences humaines 7D – The unit tests for Egypt were handed back today as everyone has completed it. We reviewed our geography notes and scheduled a quiz on the Greek geography for Friday, February 14. We completed the video on Greek mythology and we will use the next class as a research period for specific gods and goddesses.

La science 7D – We reviewed the terms taxonomie and ecologie. The students received a review page today for taxonomy that we will be using during the week. We started into some of  the questions from the workbook and students need to complete questions 2, 3, 4, and 7 for tomorrow’s class.

Les maths 7C & 7D – Tests and quizzes were handed back and we reviewed expressions. We used some sample scenarios and developed some expressions based on the information available. We scheduled a quiz on expressions for Thursday, February 13 and we will continue to practice expressions up until that date. There is no google classroom homework tonight since I received a majority of the duotangs today. We will resume it tomorrow.

Le jeudi 6 février

Here’s our day today!

Le français 7E – We reviewed our phrasings and applied the phrasings to the third person singular. We then completed a written assignment using the practiced phrasing and the students stormed through it! It was awesome.

Les maths 7D & 7C – We reviewed basic expressions in algebra and then added on a second element to the expression, the constant. We practiced developing expressions from word problems and worked on questions 1, 3, 7 and 8 in the textbook, page 18. Today’s google classroom homework was uploaded.

Les sciences humaines 7A – We reviewed the Greek geography and started into Ancient Greek mythology. The class was mainly used for research purposes as students selected several gods and goddesses to research. We will share our findings the next class.

Les sciences humaines 7D – We completed our analyses of the geography of six ancient city-states in Greece. We started into Greek mythology with a little video-clip on the beginnings of the known gods and goddesses of ancient Greece.

Le mercredi 5 février

Bonjour à tous, voici notre journée !

Les sciences humaines 7D – We moved from analysing the geography of Greece to that of several city-states.

Les sciences humaines 7A – We discussed our analyses of the geography of several city-states. We then identified the strengths and weaknesses of the various city-states in regards to agriculture, commerce and defense. We started into Greek mythology and the origin stories.

Les maths 7D & 7C – We reviewed the structure and purpose of expressions. We focused much more on solving expressions by applying an outside value to the variable. We also worked on developing expressions based on the info provided in a scenario. The google classroom has been updated with today’s and tomorrow’s homework for those students away on Friday for a hockey tournament.
