Understanding probability and then testing it was the focus in math for both grade 6s and 7s. The bar graph in the photo is showing experimental probability. By understanding what should happen when all are equal students could better determine what the theoretical probability should be. Great start to this concept.
1) Literature Circles
a) Read, blog, respond.
b) Use the criteria sheet I gave to you today and reflect on how you are doing so far with your blogging. Choose your best blog and reflect on what you are doing well, what could be improved and how you are going to get there. Write the reflection on the sheet.
c) Work on the new comprehension activity - the setting chart. - due Friday. Follow the criteria!
Those going to the track meet - remember to arrive early as we want to leave the school for 8:30. Drink lots of water on Tuesday as hydrating before exercise is really important especially when it is warm. Bring hats, sunscreen, food and water to the track on Wednesday. Be prepared for the heat as it is a long day.
For those staying at school - come in to the class and pick up the items that were organized on Monday afternoon. You will not be returning to the class for the remainder of the day so take all your supplies. Head to your assigned teacher as they will be doing your attendance. Be polite and respectful as you are a visitor to their classrooms.
Comment: The book Touching Spirit Bear has become very intense. We started to make a prediction as to what you think will happen next. Share your predications and be sure to explain why you think this is what will take place. Make sure that your predication is reasonable to the story - having Cole rescued by aliens would not be reasonable!
I am a grade 7 teacher who has been teaching in the Surrey School District for over 28 years. I love to read, garden, walk, and spend time with family, friends and my golden retriever Kona.
