We have begun an extremely busy week for our grade 7s. FSA testing is in full swing. Each day the grade 7 students will be immersed in at least one component of the province wide testing so it is very important that they arrive each day on time and are prepared with calculators and dictionaries/thesauruses. Their brains will be exhausted by Thursday afternoon so it is a very good thing Friday is a Professional Day.
Understanding and using microscopes was the focus of learning in Science as we begin a new unit. What is something you learned today? Share with your parents your new knowledge. Ask them to name and explain the different parts of the microscope.
1) Science Learning Intention: I can name parts of the microscope and state the purpose of each part.
- complete the worksheet and definitions/explantions page on the microscopes.
2) Math - grade 7s Learning Intention: I can estimate sums of decimal numbers.
- #3.1 pg 100
- grade 6s - Mrs. Van - create list of ways you can use decimals in real life
Mr. Rayat - no homework
3) French - test tomorrow- study
4) Return golf forms
5) Return raffle tickets when they are sold
6) Website Comments: Watch Moonshot Thinking Video Link. What messages are the producers of this clip wanting you to think about? What is one discovery or creation or invention mentioned in this video that you find truly amazing? Explain why.
Ear buds: If possible have a set of ear buds at school tomorrow.
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.
