Yesterday the students visited the Young Entrepreneur Show that was held by the grade 5 students in our school. The wares that were sold were unique, creative and great gift ideas. I needed a basket to hold all the items I bought. This program is excellent for teaching skills around operating a business; this is what authentic learning is about.
Today the grade 6/7 classes headed out for a celebration of learning. It has been a very busy term 1 where students needed to become owners of their learning and their behaviours. It is important to celebrate success and that is what the day was about. Ther students had a wonderful time driving go carts, playing mini golf and building the ever important friendships.
1) Animoto- collect images on a USB for Monday. Collect more than you think you will need.
2) Math - grade 7s have a quiz on Monday - study addition, subtraction and multiplication of decimal numbers. Grade 6s please check your teachers' websites.
3) Journal #12 due Sunday (I would recommend you do this on Friday after Castle Fun Park)
4) Reflection on the imovie project. I have shared a google doc with you titled "Reflection of iMovie/Digital Storytelling". You will need to copy from the shared doc to a new word doc and then fill this in. Please complete this reflection focusing on thoughtful answers not quick answers. Once done please share this with me and then upload it to your Evernote "Photography' Note.
In the comments section to this post please share what the best part of today was for you.
