How about that weather this weekend…

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!

We will be doing some Remembrance Day activities this week in preparation for our Assembly on Thursday.

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.

Les Devoirs:

  • lundi- 7mes Math- one sheet of A and one sheet of B
    • Beaver Math Computing Challenge
    • 7mes- Vball practice @2h45
  • Mardi- Orchestre

  • mercredi- Education Physique
    • 7mes- Vball practice @ 8h00
  • jeudi- Jour du Souvenir Assembly 1h15
  • vendredi- Jour du Souvenir (pas d’école)

Bonne fin de semaine!

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?)
    • Quiz- Verbes ER au present
    • 6mes- Math, be ready!

Bonne fin de semaine!
