Bonjour ! Here’s what went on today.

Les sciences humaines 7B & 7A – We wrote our geography quiz today. We will have another quiz on the government and social structure next week (7Bs are Thursday and 7C & 7As are Friday).

FLA 7C – The students worked on their unit project today. A few students did not complete their poster and have the weekend to finish it up.

Les maths – I shared the results of our Mock Gauss with the class and Alyssa Perry was the lucky student to sign the golden ducky. The students handed in their homework duotangs and wrote a short test on decimal numbers.

Les sciences humaines 7C- We wrote our geography quiz today and results should be available by tomorrow but some students still need to write it. 7As and 7Bs are writing it tomorrow. 

Les maths 7C – We had some fun with a mock Gauss test. It is a math test made by the University of Waterloo (https://www.cemc.uwaterloo.ca/contests/gauss.html). Some students got to write the official one but the class wanted to give it a try. The student with the most points gets to sign the Golden Ducky trophy in the classroom, and the winner will be announced tomorrow. The google classroom homework has been uploaded and I will take in the duotangs tomorrow. 

FLA 7C – The students worked on their final unit project. They worked really well today so I’m giving them time tomorrow to put their final touches on their posters.

Here’s the scoop!

Les sciences humaines 7A & 7C – We reviewed a little geography in preparation for the quiz. 7Cs are writing the quiz tomorrow and 7A & 7B are writing the quiz on Friday. We then moved onto the military and how the Roman Army became one of the strongest and fiercest in history.

Les maths – We did some review and practice with decimal numbers. The students received a second copy of the class project from last Friday to redo and then compare their work with the original to identify any mistakes. The students are to use these documents for their studying as we’ll have our test on Friday. Google classroom homework has been uploaded. 

FLA 7C – We used today to work on the rough draft for our unit project. The students had some time to put the assignment together and then have it reviewed and evaluated by a classmate. They need to complete this rough draft for tomorrow’s class as we will be working on the good copy tomorrow.

We completed our notes on the government structure and the responsibilities of the groups that make up the government. 7Cs have their geography quiz on Thursday and the 7B have their geography quiz on Friday!!

FLA 7C – We started into the unit project today. The students started on their first draft today and we will use tomorrow to do some peer evaluating and editing.

Les maths 7C – We completed our second foundational quiz today and I am hoping to have the results completed and organized for tomorrow’s class. We have a test on Friday for decimal numbers and we will spend much of tomorrow prepping for that. The google classroom homework has been uploaded.

Le lundi 13 mai

Bonjour! Voici, notre journée.

Les sciences humaines 7A, 7B & 7C – We scheduled a geography quiz for this week. 7C will write the quiz Thursday and 7A and 7B will write the quiz on Friday. We will also have another quiz for the social structure late next week. We reviewed our notes on the social structure, hierarchy and government. We continued into the roles and responsibilities of the different roles within the government.

Les maths 7C – We started with a review of adding and subtracting fractions. I was noticing some common mistakes in the reach-back homework. Due to a lock down scheduled last Thursday, the students did not have a full class to complete the in-class assignment. So, the students who did not complete the assignment were given some time today to complete their work. We scheduled a test on decimal numbers for Friday, May 17. The google classroom homework has been uploaded. 

FLA 7C – We reviewed le futur proche and completed some comprehension questions with some resources from the text. The students then analysed the strengths and areas of need for the group posters made the previous class. The hope being that the students recognize how to approach their own assignment that we will start tomorrow.

One general announcement. There are no classes Friday, May 10 for the Grade 7 students. We are hosting an orientation for Grade 6 students that day. A big thanks to our Grade 7 volunteers who will be here to assist our orientation.

Les sciences humaines 7A & 7C – We reviewed the homework for the demographics of the Roman empire. We then moved onto our hypotheses for the role of women in the empire and we did quite well. We briefly covered some of the social norms for education and marriage and some great questions were asked of me.

Les maths 7C – We had a little decimal number competition with addition and completed some review questions in the textbook. We have our in-class assignment tomorrow on adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing decimal numbers. Students can continue to work on page 121, questions 6, 7 and 8 to prepare for tomorrow. The google classroom has been updated with the homework and I will be taking in the duotangs tomorrow.

FLA 7C – I introduced the final project for the Stress unit. The students were given a sample of the project and we to evaluate it based on the criteria given and the presentation rubric. The students have a good understanding of the assignment and we will start the assignment tomorrow with our first draft.
