In PE we did our first Fitness Assessment! It was tons of fun!

We received the final piece of text for our Dictee this week, students are reminded that Friday is the Examen. Some time should be spent reviewing the texts and/or the vocab in preparation. Some review options include rewriting the text and/or vocab, saying them out loud etc.

As a practice in class, we did a blooket! Here is the link if anyone wants to practice at home on their own device Dictee 1 Blooket Please use your name in some capacity so I know who you are.

Students will find out their Enrichment choices on Friday.

Turned into a bit of a smokey day! Hope you all enjoyed a lovely long weekend 🙂

It’s so exciting that we actually have a full week together!

We started our weekly Dictée program today. The first 3 days of the week, students are given 3 pieces of text and some vocabulary, as well as a weekly grammatical or verb conjugation rule that we practice. On the last day of the week the 3 pieces of text are combined into an Examen, which is how students are evaluated. At the beginning of the following week, students are given a quiz on the weekly rule. Students are encouraged to bring their Dictée home to review the text, the vocab or both, as well as the weekly rule in preparation for the Examen and Quiz. We will talk more about this in class as the days progress and students get more exposure to the routine.

Les Devoirs:

  • orchestre demain
  • 6mes- feuille des Maths (Écrire les nombres)
  • 4 personnes pour Moi Dans Un Sac

À demain!

Another busy day!

Grade 6/7s learned about Enrichment today. It’s an opportunity for students to spend Friday afternoons (during school hours) doing something enriching to their learning, but that isn’t Math or Language Arts etc. The grade 6/7 teachers each offer something different, and students are placed in one of their top 3 choices. It’s kind of like electives or explorations at high school or middle school. Ask your child what their top 3 are!

We met up with our little buddies this afternoon to help them with an autumnal art project. I am super impressed with how well our class interacts with their littles, bravo les amis!

This evening is Meet The Teacher, 6pm-7pm. Hoping to see you all!

Tomorrow is Orange Shirt Day. Students are encouraged to wear orange if they have it.

Les devoirs:

  • Orchestre demain
  • vendredi: National Day for Truth & Reconciliation (pas d’ecole)

Have a great day with Mme Shak demain! À lundi!

So much excitement around Day 1 of Band! Loved hearing all the comments at the end of the day 🙂 Please remind and encourage your child to bring their instrument home to practice, everyday!

I am looking for a Room Parent for this year! I find in grade 7 it isn’t too much of a job, but’s always helpful to have one. If you’re interested, please email me! Thanks in advance!!

Tomorrow evening is Meet the Teacher! Between 6pm-7pm families are invited to drop by the chalet to look around and meet me! It’s better if you are accompanied by your child, as they can show you around and introduce me, however I would love to meet you either way. Mme Riznek and I are encouraging both of our classes to meet both of us, as your child has one of us for Math or Socials.

Les Devoirs:

  • 7mes: Math- both circle multiplication sheets due demain, page titre La Prehistoire due demain
  • demain: Education Physique, $1 Treat Day after school
  • jeudi- Orange Shirt Day, Orchestre
  • vendredi- National Day for Truth & Reconciliation (pas d’ecole)

À demain!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

This morning we talked about the life and legacy of Terry Fox, then headed to Mme Riznek’s class to participate in a virtual session with Naika, a representative from the Terry Fox Foundation. Our run is on Thursday, hopefully you got the email from Mrs Sollows and are able to contribute a donation online to add to the over $850 million that has been collected since the beginning of the Marathon of Hope.

Just a reminder that Friday is a non-instructional day for students.

Happy Friday!

I’m happy to report that both Mr Buchin (Wednesday’s TTOC) and Mme Shak (my job share partner) had lovely days with Division 3, so thank you to everyone who helped make that happen!

I shared some news with the class this afternoon: I am expecting my second child, and am due January 1st. That means that Mme Shak and I will be here for the first term, then another amazing teacher will take over in the new year. I apologize if this creates any anxiety for students or families, but I am confident that we will have an amazing term 1 together, and the class will create a wonderful community together to welcome the new teacher in the new year. Our grade 7s will be well taken care, our other grade 7 teachers will make sure they are included and don’t miss out on anything. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me.

We started our Class Economy today, I am encouraged by everyone’s enthusiasm about it and look forward to include in our everyday routine. I also encourage you to ask them about it!

I sent home our Welcome Letter today, it has our weekly schedule and other important information about Division 3. Please take a look and keep somewhere safe for your reference.

Les Devoirs:

  • lundi- Pas d’Ecole
  • White Envelope (please look over, make changes, sign and return)
  • vendredi- Pas d’Ecole

Bonne fin de semaine! À mardi!
