Happy Soggy Tuesday! We had 7 friends away today. There is definitely something nasty going around, my daughter is also home sick. Please remind your child about proper hand hygiene!

Double inside recess today, thankfully our class is pretty chill and able to find something quiet and appropriate to occupy their time.

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.

Les Devoirs:

  • demain- Orchestre
    • 7me Volleyball Game (Home!) against DPE

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.

Les Devoirs:

  • lundi- Examen de Dictée 4 et Quiz: Ses/Ces/C’est
    • 6mes- Math: Labyrinthe des Nombres Premiers et Composés

We had a productive Monday. Despite it being a short week, we have a lot lined up to accomplish!

I had the grade 7s sign their names to the Hoodie document. Hopefully everyone has ordered or will order theirs. They will probably arrive after Winter Break but we’ll cross our fingers that they arrive sooner than that!

What a soggy, yucky day!

Thankfully we didn’t have too much on the schedule today, plus hot lunch and double inside recess… it could have been a day.

We did some English in the morning, students are getting really good at identifying text features. After recess we split off for Enrichment. Unfortunately we don’t have it again for a few weeks since the next 2 Fridays are no school for students.

This afternoon we had our class party, a very chill afternoon of socializing, which everyone enjoyed.

Next week is a short week as Friday is Remembrance Day (Jour du Souvenir). We have a lot to fit into 3 days (with me), including finishing the FSAs, a school-wide write, and honouring Remembrance Day, something that is particularly important to me.

We continued our skill development in volleyball this morning. I am seeing some decent improvement! Hopefully we can do some game play next week!

Another busy but good day!

We wrote our third Examen de Dictee this morning, our longest one yet. Hopefully the students are catching on to the system and will start to see some good progression in their results.

We have a verb quiz on Monday, the Blooket is available for practice.

We had Enrichment this morning, sounds like the different groups are starting to make some good progress in their respective areas. We have 4 more meetings this term.

This afternoon I tried something I’ve never done before. Students were given free range to create an art piece, using whatever medium they wanted, inspired by our current season, Halloween or how they were feeling today. I am so happy to report that the 40 minutes they had were really used well, and the art pieces that were/are being completed are amazing. Students used a variety of mediums and were inspired by different things, and had some really good conversations about what they were making and doing and seeing etc. I am honestly not surprised with this group, but I am so happy that it went well. The students will be completing a self-reflection on their art piece next week, which will be used to decide a proficiency for this task. Once all the pieces are installed in our ‘gallery’, I will share a pic. But I did snap one of everyone engaged in their work for you.

Spooktacular is this evening! For everyone attending, have a wonderful time!

Les Devoirs:

  • lundi- Halloween! (costumes?)
