Le mardi 21 avril

Bonjour ! A few notes for today’s lessons.

Les maths 7C & 7D – I’ve uploaded my answers for yesterday’s work and a shorter review presentation for calculating area of triangles. I’ve uploaded some more questions to assess student understanding of area of triangles. There is one scenario question that will require some problem solving, therefore some extra time will be needed. Students will need to complete the work on loose leaf.

Les sciences 7D – A new mini lesson have been uploaded on Evolution. There’s a bit of new information but there are some good examples there in hopes of helping comprehension. I included a video, along with some instructions as the video is quite quick but it’s a great resource. Along with the presentation, there is a question sheet with 3 questions to be answered. Students can answer directly in the document.

A student evaluation of M. Beaton has been uploaded for my 7C crew to complete. I made an error earlier this morning when I uploaded the google doc but I have since repaired that. Merci Eleena et Dru pour le message !

Le lundi 20 avril

Good morning tout le monde. A few items to share today.

Évaluation de M. Beaton – I’ve shared an evaluation for my lessons and the work load the past few weeks to the students in 7D on Friday and 7A today. I’m collecting the results to see if there is anything I should stop, start or continue doing. There were some really good ideas and information shared by my 7D crew, thank you! 7C, I will share the evaluation form and explication with you tomorrow.

Les maths 7C & 7D – The formative assessment that was completed on Friday went really well. The results were strong and I will be completing another this week. We will start area of triangles today and continue to work on that throughout the week.

Les sciences humaines 7A & 7D – I’ve uploaded two videos today. One discussing the questions from the previous lesson on Thursday, April 16 and a new one addressing democracy in Canada. Only one question to answer for today’s work but it requires come research, so a wee bit of time is required.

Le vendredi 17 avril

Good morning! My apologizes as I’ve neglected my blog all week; my google classrooms were my main focus this week. I’ve tried incorporating more video lessons in the hope they provide some extra support and made better efforts when organising the daily activities. Here are a couple of items from today’s activities.

Google Form for Math – I’ve made a formative quiz for math to assess everyone’s understanding of circles and parallelograms from this week’s lessons. Everyone needs to get this done today so I can use the weekend to give us some direction for next week. It’s the first time I’ve done a google form but it should work, fingers crossed and prays said. The students can find the link in their school email account.

Teacher Evaluation – Starting with 7D, I’ve made an evaluation for the students to use for me and my work. I want to know what works, what doesn’t and what I should start. It’s called a ‘Stop, Start, Continue’. Take the weekend to think about it and fill it in. Other classes will get the same opportunity next week.

Oral Practice – My Science and Social Studies videos are structured in a way for students to hear and practice their French. My hope is that students understand the instruction in them to re-lesson to each video clip at least twice to use the opportunity to practice their French. Don’t lose what you’ve gained throughout the school year!!!

Le jeudi 9 avril

Bonjour tout le monde ! So, I remembered that we, the teachers, have two email accounts at Stonepark so I responded to all my gmail message today. My apologies everyone! Just an update to go along with my video this morning.

Les maths 7C & 7D – Items have been added to the google classroom for students to check over their work from yesterday – two presentations and a video. I’ve added a fifth evaluation document with two word problems, may be a bit of a challenge, but take your time. Next week we will start with some review for circles and move onto area of parallelograms and triangles – new stuff!!

Les sciences 7D – I’ve uploaded a video with the questions and answers of the first review page for students to hear and practice speaking. A second review page has been added for the students to work on accompanied by a presentation for reference.

Thank you everyone for the emails, questions, and comments. All the feedback has been great to receive and really helpful as I put things together. Please keep it coming.

Le mercredi 8 avril

Good morning everyone! It seems things we’re operating more smoothly yesterday compared to Monday. Work is getting done and being shared with me, and everyone should have their login info. Here’s a little overview for today’s classes.

Les maths 7C & 7D – You will find three items in the google classroom. The first item is a presentation with answers for yesterday’s Évaluation 2. Go through the presentation and compare your answers with mine. There are two assignments attached today. Évaluation 3 has only one activity, a multiplication table to be filled in. I separated this document so that everyone can complete the work in the actual document. When you open it, you will receive your own copy and you can complete the table. Évaluation 4 operates very much like Évaluation 1 and 2, complete the work on loose leaf and we will share answers tomorrow.

Les sciences humaines 7A & 7D – There are two items for today. The first is a video of my desktop with the questions and answers for the page ‘Ma page de révision – la Grèce antique’. You may not see it right away, my computer is testing my patience by taking a lot of time to upload it. So please bare with me. The second item is an assignment in a presentation format. It addresses social norms in regards to the family. It asks for 8 things we know about the family in the picture according to what we studied in class. Complete your work in the actual document.

Again if there are any problems, drop me a line. Bonne journée !

Le mardi 7 avril

Bonjour tout le monde! It seems everything is working well and the sailing seems smooth. Here are some notes from yesterday –

Les maths 7D & 7C – I believe it is safe to say that the math work I assign needs to be completed on loose leaf. If you print off the documents, please feel free but no matter how many times I try, some of the math cannot be completed within the google documents or slides. Some students were really on the ball (à la page) and sent me a photo of their work – awesome. I’m getting through them as much as I can but please do not think it is required. I don’t know if I can get through all of them in one day if they were all sent to me. Please compare yesterday’s work with my answers in the presentation in google classroom. There’s some new work in the google classroom as well.

Les sciences humaines 7A & 7D – The documents for social studies are much easier to work with online. I will post all documents as an assignment, therefore I can structure it so that each student can have their own copy. I’ve gone through some answers and we will go through them tomorrow. I did notice that not all students in 7D have joined the sciences humaines google classroom (the code is bflysbi). If there are any problems, please let me know. One error on my part was failing to recognise that students may not have their notes with them. I will repair that the next time – quel professeur.

Les sciences 7D – Learning from my mistake yesterday, I’ve posted a powerpoint along with the revision question sheet. I am going to work out an option for students to access the online version of the workbook for the science class, but give me a few days.

Again, if there are any issues, comments or questions, please drop me a line. Any feedback is good feedback.

Merci bien et bonne journée !

Le lundi 6 avril

Good day everyone! Here we go with some schooling at home. I’m pumped, so I hope you are too. This week is called ‘settling in’. In the off chance there are some kinks that need to be worked out, I will not be introducing new material, as much as it pains me. I have some cool video lessons ready to go, so get excited. First, a few housekeeping items. 

Login Name & Passwords – Some students do not have a copy or have forgotten their login name and password. Do not worry. I have been given permission to get into the school and my classroom on Tuesday (April 7). So, I will be sending out that information to those in need Tuesday morning.  

This week’s schedule – Like I said above, this week is really about settling in and getting comfortable with the format for our schooling the next few weeks. Each day we will have math and language arts work to complete. The science and social studies will alternate day to day. We will use this week to review our material before the March Break. To ease ourselves into the format, we will be working with material we’ve previously covered. 

Les maths – The goal is to have 30 minutes of math to complete. I will try my best to follow that. Some days there may be more than 30 minutes and some days there might be less. 

Les sciences et les sciences humaines – The time allotted for these two classes is to be included in the 40 minutes set aside for Language Arts. My goal is to provide about 20 minutes of work each day. Again, it may end up being a little bit more or less than that.

 Monday’s Tasks

  1. Math – There is a review document structured around the material distributed by the school board. It does focus more on struggles I was noticing in the homework duotangs prior to the break. The assignment can be found in the google classroom. I will provide answers on Tuesday. 
    1. Codes for the google classrooms, just in case
      1. Les maths 7D – 6erpju6
      2. Les maths 7C – ry3hyf6
  2. Les sciences humaines – I’ve created another review question sheet for the Ancient Greece unit. The sheet includes more geography questions and some familiar questions. The assignment can be found in the google classroom. My 7D crew, you have yet to join the google classroom – codes are below.
    1. Codes for the google classrooms, just in case
