Le lundi 27 janvier

Here’s our Monday!

Les sciences humaines 7D – We started with our review page of questions. The students asked each other the questions from the page and shared their answers. We then used our notes to play a review game. We have our test tomorrow for the Ancient Egypt unit, study well tonight and make good use of the resources available in the sciences humaines folder if they are forgotten at school.

Les sciences humaines 7A – I handed back their second drafts with suggestions and corrections to be made. We have set the due date for Friday, January 31 and today was the last day for class time to be spent on the essay.

Les maths 7C & 7D – We completed some final review for adding fractions. I introduced a guide sheet for adding fractions based on the formative assessments from last week. We are going to try an in class assignment tomorrow with which the students will be able to use the guide. We then started applying the same strategies to subtracting fractions. I anticipate we will be finishing the unit by the end of the week. There will be a few more quizzes and a final chapter test early next week. The google classroom homework has been uploaded.

Bonjour tout le monde! I apologise, I completely forgot to add an update for yesterday’s classes. Here’s what’s on the go.
