It was quite a disappointment for many of the students (and their parents) today to have the Grouse Grind trip cancelled due to rain. Yesterday was such a beautiful day that I was hopeful it would carry over. Alas, this was not to be.
The students worked on publishing their I Am Poems on the Google Presentation file. Many are well on their way to completion. This will be a perfect assignment to work on over the weekend as we are expecting lots of rain.
The Dream Boards are starting to come together as well. Students have been putting in an amazing amount of effort choosing inspirational quotes and images. I have also watched a number of students be very creative with the presentation. The Dream Boards also can be worked on this weekend as the rain falls outside your windows.
1) LA - I Am Poems - please complete your poem on the google presentation
2) Math - if your math worksheet from Thursday was not completed please do so this weekend.
3) Art - Dream boards - only one more in class session will be given. You need to ensure most of your board is done (or a really good portion of it) so that you can work on the finishing details on Monday.
Response: The Strange Case of Origami Yoda has appeared to be a very light hearted book to read but in amongst all the laughter and humour are many lessons about human behaviour and how to live life. What lessons do you think the author is trying to teach us through this novel? Explain your thoughts. It is important that you take some time and thought before responding. A quick one line will not be acceptable. Read what your classmates have written especially the grade 7s. Their responses are more detailed, thoughtful and show that reflection and care have taken place as they respond. There are also too many mistakes with capitals, periods and spelling. Type your response first on a word document, use writer's mumble and then copy and paste into the comments section.
