Thanks to those who brought in the batteries. The Green Team has a wicked collection now for their recycling program. Here’s what we got up to today.

Les mathématiques 7C – We completed the math textbook work and started some review and practice for the test. I made sure I did not goof again with the homework. The google classroom is updated with the document and is ready to be completed.

FLA 7C – We completed our reading comprehension activity and we will correct and go over them tomorrow. We tried a little Qui suis-je? game (Who am I ?) with food and it was a big hit. The students prepared their own samples and we will use them over the next few classes to practice some vocabulary and verbs.

Les sciences humaines 7B – We spent the class with some extra review on geography and mythology. We finished our notes on mythology and used the information to answer some comprehension questions. The students should spend 20 minutes tonight reviewing the geography notes (pages 1 and 2) and the vocabulary for the Greek mythology (5 and 6).

Bonjour tout le monde ! If you have any dead batteries lying around, please send them in as the school’s green team will see them properly recycled. Here’s what we got up today.

Les sciences humaines 7B – I completed a homework check for the assigned gods and goddesses to be researched. We had enough time today to review geography and some of the Greek gods. The students are to take time to review the vocabulary and information on pages 1 to 4 for our geography review.

FLA 7C – We completed some review activities and worked on some reading comprehension. We have a good text with some sample conversations between students. We read through the texts together and discussed new vocabulary and phrasing. The students then answered some comprehension questions based on the conversations. We will spend some time on these questions tomorrow.

Les sciences humaines 7A – We reviewed some geography and Greek mythology. We returned to the comprehension activity based on the legend of Echo. I had the chance to read through their answers from yesterday and return them with some guidance. Today was the opportunity for students to return to their answers and make corrections and complete their work. I’ve uploaded the Echo text and updated the student booklet for the unit with the questions.

Les mathématiques 7C – We focused on questions from the text – the questions are listed below for those who were absent. We completed some together and worked individually. The students were reminded our their test on Friday. We will use tomorrow and Thursday to complete some practice quiz questions and review. I have also updated the google classroom with some homework for tonight. It was great, a few students checked in with me with some questions and double-checking their answers from last night’s homework!

Le lundi 14 janvier

Bonjour and good day. Two general announcements for the week. The Stonepark Green Team has organised a battery recycling program for the week. If you happen to have any dead batteries lying around or in your junk drawer, send them on in. The green team will organise them to be recycled for you. Also, the French Immersion 7 Math students will begin their reach-back homework. Every night there will be specific math homework based on something they have already studied and been tested on. The homework should only last about 10 minutes and is to be completed in a separate math duotang or notebook. Every Friday the teacher will check for the completion of that week’s homework. The homework can be found in the google classroom (code is kus8b7).

Here’s what we got up to today.

Les sciences humaines 7A & 7C – We reviewed our Greek geography and Greek mythology notes. The 7C’s completed the gods and goddesses of Ancient Greece, their patronage, symbols and relation in the family. The 7A’s worked on a reading comprehension based on the legend of Echo.

FLA 7C – We completed the restaurant skits and reviewed the vocabulary and phrasing for this unit. We started a reading comprehension activity but ran out of time. We will continue tomorrow.

Les mathématiques 7C – We reviewed the divisibility rules and applied them to two 3 digit numbers. We started into some textbook work to apply the rules. We will have a test this Friday, January 18 for this unit.

Le jeudi 10 janvier

Here is today’s happenings.

Les sciences humaines 7B & 7C – We continued our review of Greek geography and the answers are coming quickly and confidently. We spent most of the class researching Greek gods and goddesses – their patronage, symbols and relation with Zeus. 7B is to complete their research of their 3 assigned gods. 7C is to complete the map on page 1 of the student booklet. 

FLA 7C – We used some time to review our questions and answers. The students are very capable of asking and answering the specific questions we’ve studied in class and are beginning to show good comprehension when I go beyond the standard questions and seek more information about their answers. Most of the students have completed their scripts for the restaurant dialogue. They need to practice their dialogue at home to ensure good and fluid pronunciation.

Les mathématiques 7C – We’ve added the rules for divisibility of 4, 8 and 9 today. We’re applying the rules to three digit numbers and providing an explanation as to why it is divisible by a particular number.

Here’s today’s info.

Our revised daily physical activity program is showing some great success. I’ve been quite proud of the 7C crew as they are taking this opportunity seriously and using the time wisely. Here’s what we got up to today.

Les sciences humaines 7A, 7B & 7C – We had the opportunity to review Greek geography and spend the majority of class on Greek mythology. I’ve introduced two video-clips that, between the two, explain the history and roles of particular Greek gods. We will spend a few more classes tackling some aspects of Greek mythology.

Les mathématiques 7C – We started our fifth unit on divisibility rules. We only began with 2, 5, 10, 3 and 6. Some students had some previous knowledge on the rules and regularities but the review was helpful.

FLA 7C – We reviewed our questions and understanding of the food vocabulary and phrasing studied in class. We practiced the sample dialogue three times over to ensure good pronunciation. The students need to practice reading this aloud tonight for homework. They had some more time to work with their partners for their particular dialogue applying phrasing for food preference and restrictions.

Le lundi 7 janvier

Here’s what we got up to today.

Les mathématiques 7C – We had our test on probability today. I should have the tests marked by tomorrow or Wednesday once everyone has finished.

FLA 7C – We worked on distinguishing preference from restrictions in terms of our diet. This was a means of introducing new vocabulary and phrasing. We then moved onto some reading comprehension. We read a dialogue together and identified the particular preferences and restrictions of the dialogue’s main characters. Finally, we started writing our own dialogue with a partner based on the sample we read together. The students are to review and practice reading aloud the dialogue at home. They have their own copies but in case they left it at school there is a copy in the français folder.

Les sciences humaines 7B – We completed pages 3 and 4 in the student booklet examining the geographic advantages of the Greek city-states. We are starting into Greek mythology and the history and roles of the 12 principal gods and goddesses. The students were assigned a little homework – they are to colour in the map on page 1 to better identify the geographic elements we have been reviewing in class. 

Le vendredi 4 janvier

Here’s what we got up today.

Les sciences humaines 7B – Tests were handed back today and marks will be added to SAS shortly. We continued into Unit 2 studying Greek geography and applying our notes to the advantages of particular city-states. The students need to review page 2 over the weekend to practice the phrasing and vocabulary for future review sessions. If they do not have their notes, the information is available in the Greek Geography presentation available in the sciences humaines folder.

FLA 7C – We reviewed our vocabulary and phrasing. We put some more practice into the new vocabulary from yesterday’s class repeating the same activities and games.

Les sciences humaines 7A – We continued into Unit 2 studying Greek geography and applying our notes to the advantages of particular city-states. The students need to review page 2 over the weekend to practice the phrasing and vocabulary for future review sessions. If they do not have their notes, the information is available in the Greek Geography presentation available in the sciences humaines folder.

Les mathématiques 7C – We practiced organising all possibilities for two independent events to measure the probability of a particular outcome. We have our test on Monday, January 7. There are presentations available in the math folder to guide their studying over the weekend. They also have a probability project to complete for Monday. In case they forgot the assignment, a copy of it is available in the math folder.
