Le mercredi 11 décembre

Tonight, our band students have their Christmas concert. We enjoyed a preview this afternoon and they did not disappoint. The concert starts at 7pm.

La science 7D – The students finished their time with the science review assignment for chapter 1. We started an intro for Chapter 2.

Le français 7E – We worked together on a sample text conversation to affirm our understanding of the next assignment. We will continue to work on our rough draft tomorrow. The presentation has been added to the français folder.

Les maths 7C – We started with a little review and clarified some questions about explaining the purpose of the numbers used in the ratios, fractions and percentages. We then finished our time with the probability project. Our probability test is Friday and the google classroom homework has been uploaded.

Les sciences humaines 7A – We completed our work with the geography of Mesopotamia and compared it with the Egyptian geography.

Le mardi 10 décembre

The big news today was the distribution of the report cards. The students received their report cards at the end of the day and had a good opportunity to look them over. I’m hoping they all make it home. There is also a bake sale tomorrow with the funds raised going to Stonepark families in need. If you’d like to contribute items for the sale, they can be dropped off at the front office.

Les maths 7D & 7C – We spent the majority of the class working on the probability project using a menu from Dairy Queen. We scheduled a probability test for Friday, December 13. It’s a little last minute but the chapter is quite short and we will use tomorrow and Thursday for review.

La science 7D – The students continued into their test. We will use tomorrow’s class to complete the task. They can all make good use of the work books tonight for review so as to be ready to use it tomorrow with the test.

Le français 7E – We worked on two more text based dialogues and answered some questions to confirm our understanding. These resources will be a guide to the next assignment, where students write and conversation and create a visual to resemble a collection of texts.

Le lundi 9 décembre

Here’s our day!

Les sciences humaines 7D – The students had the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the rubric for the visual project. The students used the rubric to evaluate student projects from previous years. The students are now more familiar with the expectations. We used the remainder of the class to work on the project. The project is due Friday, December 13.

La science 7D – We completed questions 1 and 6 of the review section of Chapter 1. The students started into a chapter test assignment. The assignment is a sample test to which the students are responding using the course work book.

Les maths 7C & 7D – We reviewed some probability work and started into a probability assignment. The students are organising possible meal options and responding to 6 questions based on their diagram of possibilities. The students will continue to work on the assignment tomorrow and hand in their completed work at the end of class. The google classroom homework has been uploaded.

Le jeudi 5 décembre

Bonjour, bonjour! Here’s our day.

Le français 7E – We continued our recommendations for healthy snacks in place of the junk food in a particular student’s lunch kit. The students were able to provide suggestions and explanation as to why it is a good choice. We moved onto a reading comprehension activity. Students were able to read it aloud and answer some questions based on the text.

Les maths 7C & 7D – We continued with our unit on probability and had some fun with the probability of two dice.

Les sciences humaines 7A – We continued into our primary resources for Mesopotamia. The students complied facts and theories based on the info and visuals that we will use and reference in the next few lessons. We started into the geography of the region.

Les sciences humaines 7D – We assigned a date for our visual project – Friday, December 13. The students will have one more class, Monday, to work on the assignment, then they are responsible for the assignment on their own time. We completed a little study on object and customs that may or may not have existed in Ancient Egypt. The students did receive some time to work a bit further on their assignment.

Le mercredi 4 décembre

Voici notre journée.

Les sciences humaines 7D – We wrote our quiz today and started our first draft of our visual project. The quizzes will be handed back tomorrow.

Les sciences humaines 7A – We reviewed our observations from the Pyramids of Giza documentary. We then moved onto a study of the civilisations of Mesopotamia. We are using some primary resources to gain a sense of the values and structure of the civilisations found in that region. We will use these observations to compare with the structure of Ancient Egypt.

Les maths 7C & 7D – We completed some review and practice with questions of probability using two independent events.

Le lundi 2 décembre

Bonjour, bonjour! Voilà notre journée.

La science 7D – We worked some more on our work book’s review questions, specifically questions 7 and 3. Question proved to be a difficult one, so we spent more time on it and question 3 seemed to be much too easy.

Les maths 7D & 7C – We worked more on probability in one independent event. I then introduced some sample scenarios with two independent events. We identified all the possibilities and started into how we could read for probabilities. I have uploaded my presentation for those students who were absent. I have also uploaded the google classroom homework. The 7C math crew have to have question 5, page 283 complete for tomorrow’s class. Students will discover we have moved on from Grade 6 reach back homework and have moved onto some of the Grade 7 math we have studied.

Le français 7E – We focused on health snacks and used our vocabulary activity from the previous class. We replaced the junk food from our friend Charlie’s lunch with healthier choices and explained why they are a good choice.

Les sciences humaines 7D – We completed two review activities today to prepare for tomorrow’s class. We practiced our review questions (page 12) and played a question game, congrats to team 3 on your win today. We had a brief moment to discuss the visual project and the class time that will be made available to work on the assignment. We have our quiz tomorrow!

Le vendredi 29 novembre

Bonjour tout le monde. Notre journée a bien passée. The Social Studies quiz for 7D has been rescheduled from Monday to Tuesday, December 3rd.

La science 7D – We finished up the last section of the properties of matter chapter, specifically question 8 on page 45. We started into the review section of our work book. The students need to have questions 2 and 4 (pages 46 and 47) completed for Monday’s class.

Le français 7E – We started into discussing health snacks and junk food. The students worked on a vocabulary assignment, ranking the worst to the best snacks, health wise.

Les maths 7C & 7D – We continued with the introduction of the probability unit. The students completed some sample questions and then continued with textbook questions – Page 282 & 283, questions 2. 4 and 5.

Les sciences humaines 7A – I accepted the visual assignment for the Ancient Egyptian hierarchy. The students then participated in a review game activity, congrats to the winners. We then watched another segment on the video for Khéops major accomplishment – the Pyramids of Giza.
