Another busy day!
We did another On Partage this morning, “what would you do with $1 million?” We have some very generous students in Div 3! Then the students compiled their Dictee results and looked over their On Partage feedback in order the complete their French Self-Reflection. You will get to read their thoughts in their report card.
We switched off for Socials. Gr 7s are wrapping up the term by discussing the Agricultural (or Neolithic) Revolution.
After lunch, Band and Math happened. Our 6s have started examining number patterns to wrap up the term, and 7s continue to work through operations with decimals. In Band, final preparations are happening for our Winter Concert.
Then, the snow started. I hope you all made it home safe, and remain safe. For those that may be curious, the district will decide and announce school closures by 6:30 that day. Please check the district website or their social media pages, or listen to the news for the most up to date information. School staff find out the same way you do.

We had 7 missing friends again today. Hoping you are all on the upswing from whatever is ailing you. My daughter is still sick as well…
We played an actual volleyball in gym today! I think it went really well. We have some awesome leaders from the Grade 7 team, but everyone is really showing improvement/engagement etc, and I love it!
While doing French work today we also viewed some of the Canada/Belgium World Cup match, which we also continued during lunch.
Grade 7s finished their Lascaux inspired art, I can’t wait to put them up and show you!
Grade 6s continued work on their Evaluations Finales for Math. I am really impressed at how hard they are working and how engaged they are in the process. I know that they probably have never done a Math assessment like this and it seems like they are responding very positively to it.
JKE is currently running a warm clothing drive for Kimz Angels. Jackets, gloves, blankets, hard warmers, socks are all being collected, new or gently used and clean.
Giving Trees are up and running! The trees are covered in tags and waiting in the foyer! We are supporting several families with 4 or 5 children each. Please tag a tag (or multiple), acquire the item and bring it back under the tree, WITH THE TAG ATTACHED. We are also running a coin drive next week to purchase any items we do not receive. Thanks in advance! JKE always does an amazing job with Giving Trees ❤

Double inside recess today, thankfully our class is pretty chill and able to find something quiet and appropriate to occupy their time.
Grade 7s started their Lascaux inspired art project today, I love this project so much!

Today busy but fun!
I had a great weekend and we spent some time this morning talking about. I’m a huge ancient civilization nut and I was treated to the Beyond Tut exhibit at the Convention Centre downtown. I showed the class some of the photos I took and the swag I got.
Then we went to watch the Langley Children’s Choir perform for us, it was very well done! They same some very entertaining songs. Div 3 was very well behaved.
We had quite a bit of French to do today (it is report card season), some Math and some English at the end of the day.

Another busy and productive day!
We are really coming along in volleyball. I assessed their ball control (volley and bump) for the first time today. I will assess again in a couple weeks to see if any further progress has been made.
After recess we heard the last Dictee for the week. The examen will be on Monday. We will also have a quiz on the rule- ces/ses/c’est. The Dictee 4 Blooket will be available all weekend for review.
In Math, the 7s continue working towards mastery of decimal multiplication and the 6s continue working with prime and composite numbers (numbers premiers et composés).
I forgot to mention yesterday that we started our On Partage activity in French. One day per week students will be given a random topic and time to prepare their thoughts before sharing out in front of the class. It’s a really easy and low stakes way for students to practice speaking in French in front of others. Typically Term 2 is when Concours d’Arts Oratoire happens, which is a much. more formal (and stressful) public speaking opportunity, and On Partage is my way of easing students into it. Our subject this week was “the best season and why” Ask your child what they chose and why!
Have a great day with Mme Shak demain! Reminder that Friday is a Jour de Congé for students.
- lundi- Examen de Dictée 4 et Quiz: Ses/Ces/C’est

Our Dictée this week is one of my favourites! Lots of new and interesting vocabulary (menuisier? clouer? raboter? atelier?). Reminder that our Examen de Dictée 4 and our Quiz: Ces/Ses/C’est will both occur on Monday as there is no school on Friday.
