Math 7/8 

  • We reviewed how to do long division today.  Grade 8 also reviewed how to multiply integers using two models.  Note's were place in the class Notebook in teams. 

  • Students were given their Mathletics passwords.   They had time to work on Mathletics, Netmath and Reflex. 

  • -Grade 8 did from the textbook on how to multiply integers without models (old school method).  All students finished this in class. 

Math 7 

  • We did a class review of long division, adding integers and subtracting integers.  Notes were put in our class Notebook in teams. 

  • Students now have their passwords for Mathletics and Netmath.   Students had 3.4 class to work on Mathletics and Netmath while Mrs. Foran and I helped students as needed.  

  • We will be having a test latter this week. 

Math 6 

  • We worked on Reflex, Mathletics and Netmath today.   I still have three students to sign up to Netmath.    

  • I put links to videos to explain Netmath and Mathletics in the student Notebook in teams. 

Science 7 

  • We reviewed our vocabulary together. 

  • We watched a movie on the importance of water “eau Canada”.   Students wrote 5 statements of what they learnt from the movie.   We reviewed these facts as a class. 

  • We finished the class with some 7 debout. 

Science 6 

  • MmeBurke  did a language building activity around microscopes today.   We then filled in a sheet with the names of the parts of a microscope.   We went to the lab and learnt how to put a microscope into focus.   We will continue our work with microscopes next Monday.   We had a lot of fun today!

 Just a reminder that Wednesday after school I have Cross country and staff meetings, so I do not always have time to update the website. 

 

Today was a busy day on the middle level floor.   We are starting to get all our online programs up and going.   

 

Students now have passwords for Reflex.  This is a program that adapts to where your child is with their multiplication facts.  

 

Students were also given their password to Netmath.   At the moment, it is in English as I am still setting it up.  This is a new program bought by the district.   Today most students had a chance to login and do thinitial tour.  I will continue to give out usernames and passwords as I set them up.  In time, I will be setting the program up to meet each students needs. 

 

Mathletics is also back by popular demand.  We will have the games section, online competition, and tasks. 

 

Students are also learning to sign into office 365.   They will have access to email through outlook.  Teams will give them a forum to chat, access to assignments and an online notebook where our class notes can be found. 

 

It is a lot of information and we are taking the time to learn how to use it.   Education is changing and this “new normal” has this teacher learning many new tricks!  Please be understanding as we work through the set up.  :)

Math 7/8 

- Locks were passed out today in class.  Students had time to work on Reflex and cool math games. 

 

 

Math 7 

- We reviewed how to model subtraction of integers.   Students had time to continue to work on questions from Page 69.   Students can find the questions in their teams class notebook in yesterdays lesson.   Students are responsible to use the back on the book to correct their answers when done.   Only problem questions will be gone over as a class.    Some students had time to work on Relfex. 

Math 6 

-We did a review. We correct the questions from the textbook.    

-We also went over how to multiply two digit numbers.   This was identified as an area they had trouble with in our beginning of the year assessment.   We will continue to practice it this week.     

-Class notes were distributed in the team class notebook. 

Science 8 

-We recorded our observations from lunch.  Observations can be notes, phrases and drawings. 

-We reviewed terms and notes covered so far this year. 

-We took notes on waves and tides.

Math 7/8 

-During today’s class, Mr. Walsh and Mrs. Foran pulled groups of students to assess if they can now multiply two digits by two digits.    This was a skill we practiced in class last week.    

-I presented a lesson on subtracting integers using the counter model.  I have distributed the Smart Notebook lesson to the students in their virtual class notebook in teams.    This is a grade 7 concept.  Grade 7 students will work on questions from the textbook tomorrow.   Grade 8 participated in the lesson to prepare them for PEDMAS questions latter this week.
